A- muddy water with red hues. Pours flat with no head
S- malty dark fruit, sweet bourbon, vanilla, hot alcohol
T- very sweet dark fruits, cherries, raisins, some oak and bourbon flavor, caramel, marshmallow
M- flat with little carbonation, syrupy and sweet but dries out on the finish which is very unique.
O- sweeter than I expected but very enjoyable. Flavors blend nicely with the barrel treatment. For a 13.5% beer it is dangerously smooth.

2012 batch. Poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: while pouring, it looked like heavily unfiltered apple cider. As the beer settled in the glass it was a dark opaque brown color. Just a couple mm of head presented which disappeared shortly after. No lacings around the glass.

Smell: a lot of over ripen dark fruits, some toasted marshmallow, white chocolate, bourbon as well as a heavily sweet and smoky smell that I just cannot describe.

Taste: its complex and boozy. Very sweet but not to the point of cloying. Taste raisins, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, a tad bit of spices and smoke. Finishes warm from the bourbon. Winter is the perfect time to drink this.

Mouthfeel: full-bodied, smooth and slightly creamy. It can get sticky along the edge of the glass.

Overall: this is one heck of a complex beer. A sipper for sure. As theres a ton going on in this beer, be sure to share this with a friend. There's lot to talk about this one with so much going on in this beer.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, 2011 Winter Solstice bottling. Pours dense nearly pitch black color with a small dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a patchy lace cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge caramel, toffee, molasses, brown sugar, maple syrup, raisin, toast, vanilla, bourbon, oak, dark bread, tobacco, light cocoa, and toasted earthiness. Absolutely insane aromas with great balance and complexity of malt and barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of huge caramel, toast, toffee, molasses, maple syrup, raisin, brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, oak, dark bread, light cocoa, light tobacco, and toasted earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, maple syrup, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, oak, dark bread, light cocoa, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity of malt and barrel flavors; with a perfect barrel/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely world class old ale! All around insane complexity and balance of malt and barrel flavors; and dangerously smooth to sip on considering the very high ABV. Unbelievably amazing offering.
