Bottle (2011)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, whartontallboy!

(Aged for 1+ year)

Murky dark brown and dark copper in color with a very small light brown head. Leaves the glass with an oily sheen, and only small specks of stick. Appropriate, though not particularly pretty, though that isn't exactly expected with a beer of this style.

The aroma is superb, and one of the best I've experienced within the style. Layers of caramels and toffees, earthy and vanilla-forward bourbon, some oak, along with marshmallow create something truly exceptional. A bit of an alcohol in the aroma prevents this from reaching perfection.

The flavor is, however, perfect. As with the aroma, the complex layers of caramels, toffees, marshmallow, bourbon, vanilla, and alcohol combine for the ultimate drinking experience. Such a delight.

Medium to near full in body, with moderate though creamy carbonation. Exceptionally drinkable.

The ultimate benchmark within the style. Perfection.

A-Clear amber not much carbonation. One finger off white head that tires to leave some lacing.

S-Slight bourbon, lots of caramel, some dark fruits.

T-Starts with some bourbon, oak and dark fruits. Balance isn't that good.

M-Medium to heavy, not much carbonation though.

O-The the regular 4D, this beer didn't do it for me. When compared to other old ales this one fell short.
