2012 Vintage poured at 50 degrees into a FSW barrelworks tulip.
A- Pours a viscous brown color with ruby hues when held to the light. A 1/2 inch beige head forms and quickly fades to a thick ring around the rim of the glass. Carbonation bubbles are apparent throughout.
S- Bourbon. Vanilla. Alcohol. Some oak. A little bit of caramel and malty sweetness, but I can't tell if it is coming from the barrel or the base beer. Either way, this smells fantastic and very inviting. Only drawback is there is not a ton of complexity.
T- Up front, a really nice malty caramel sweetness along with some molasses and port-like cherry esters. On the back end, there is a huge blast of vanilla, bourbon, and some oak tannins along with a touch of bitterness to round things out. There is alcohol present, but no fusel or 'hot' flavor. Spot on for the style. Wow- this is an amazing beer!
M- Luscious. Smooth, low carbonation that gives the beer a creamy feel. High body, although not overly sweet. Great balance between the tannic oak and high finishing gravity make this a smooth drinker.
O- I was not expecting this beer to be so amazing. I want to rate this badly in a disguised attempt to trade for more of it, but it deserves better than that. Great winter time sipper that meshes bourbon and malt perfectly, without being an over the top, diabetic coma inducing sort of beer. Gimme more.
