Huge thanks to Alex (Masterski) for bringing this one up on his visit to Alaska.
Pours a nice brown color with major ruby highlights. Carbonation quickly falls to a skim, and leaves no lacing, but appears to be carbonated correctly for the style.
Nose is chock full of dark fruit. Some caramel lurking in there as well, and also an odd maltiness that i picked up in alot of kuhnhenn's huge beers (extraneous and BBBW).
The caramel flavors come on strong in the flavor, complimented by a big bourbony booziness. Certainly not for the faint of heart. Pretty hot. The finish is a little more bitter than i expected, but certainly not out of the style's sweetspot. Booze, caramel, and slight dark fruits linger after each sip.
Mouthfeel is money. Big and chewy, good carbonation, ideal. My only gripe is that it could be a touch bigger body-wise. Feels every so slightly thin.
Overall a very nice beer. Not much to critique here. A little more body, and slightly less booze would be nice, but really not in need of any serious alterations, IMO. A great beer. Thanks again Alex.

Notes taken on my phone a few nights ago. Huge thanks to my cousin Sonny for sharing this one with me, an all-time Want for me. Wish I had my notebook but the notes will have to suffice.
A- Poured to a wine glass with a dark brown almost opaque body. Small foamy white head forms but quickly recedes to the edges as a small ring. Spotty lacing for the most part but some nice patches around the glass.
S- Deep bourbon and huge old ale aroma blasts out of the bottle, I could smell it right as I broke the seal. Bourbon is not alcoholic feeling but quite smooth while remaining strong aromatically. Rich caramel sweet base and some raisin, slight cocoa dark malts.
T- Follows the nose very well, rich and decadent old ale with a great barrel bourbon feel blended in. The old ale base reminds me of a less sweet Old Stock, big raisin and dusty aged caramel. Bourbon is a bit peppery and has vanilla oak notes. Slight dusty dark cocoa feel.
MF- Super thick bodied with a semi-creamy but mostly oily feel. Carbonation at a moderate low level but suits what is happening. Finishes with some sweetness and a soothing warmth on the palate.
Right up my alley. Super intense Old Ale flavors and huge but ABV well hidden. The bourbon barrel is strong but the base has a ton complex flavors of its own.
