Shared this one tonight with some good friends... I received this in trade from the great trader jvillefan... Thanks a bunch Michael!! It was well received.
Pours a fairly clear walnut brown.. no head and no bubbles and unfortunately no surprise.
The nose is rich dark malts and plenty of fruity esters.... great barrel presence, but not overdone.
Sweet and very rich maltiness... a light tannic oakiness helps cut through the pretty thick caramel maltiness... dark cherries and vanilla.. cigar wrapper tobacco.. later pours show more raisin and some light cocoa.. so very rich.
I am so disappointed that there is no carbonation in this... A decent bubble would catapult this into the upper echelon of beers... I have absolutely NO idea how a brewery like LA can come so close to perfection and then fuck things up like no carbonation.
Thanks again Michael... This tasted and smelled great... I would love to get another 1-2 of these to hang onto for posterity.
