750 mL bottle, 2012 #323 of 1400, poured into a tulip
A- Black with a large dark tan head that fades very quickly.
S- Bourbon, vanilla, molasses, toffee, some chocolate, raisins/dark fruits.
T- Bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, oak, roasted malts, a coffee like bitterness in the finish, dark fruits, there is some heat from the bourbon, but it isn't harsh.
S- Smooth, creamy, full body, well carbonated.
O- An other great barrel aged beer from Evolution. There is a good amount if bourbon and it is well balanced. I happy to say I have tried all vintages fairly fresh and the only one that had any issues was the 2010 because it was completely flat which hurt the taste. I really hope I am able to pick up more. And please remember this is kind of close to a bourbon barrel aged stout, but is not claiming to be one.
