2013 Release poured at cellar temperature into a snifter.
A - Pours a very dark brown with minimal head.
S - Smells of malt, bourbon and chocolate.
T - Bourbon and carmel at the fore with chocolate in the middle and a little bite of booze/hops on the finish.
M - Quite thick and mouth coating with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O - A very pleasant, warming winter ale. Everything is well integrated. Highly recommended.

22 oz bottle courtesy of libby pours a rich near-black color with an abundance of brown head. Fades slowly and leaves plenty of lace.

Nose is nicely balanced between bourbon, chocolate and wood. Raisins, brown sugar and vanilla also come out to play.

Taste is sweet and thick with a smoothness rarely found on an 11+ %'er. Marshmallow fluff meets whiskey barrel. Burnt caramel, molasses and cocoa powder flavors as well. The mouthfeel is quite full and silky. Amazing beer that I wish I had more of...much more.
