Bottled 12oz, in 2012, aged another half year, served in snifter at 50F. Drank with wife who loved it in celebration of Kentucky derby and birth of son. Her first BBA RIS.
Black with not a photon shooting through this beer with a thin brown bubbly head round the glass, moderate retention, lacy bubbly lacing. Moderate alcohol legs, no surprise at 18% etoh.
Aroma of toffee, caramel, molasses, with the bourbon notes ble dig well including vanilla, smoke, oak, and a nice tone of licorice. Taste includes the entirety of the nose starts sweet with nice complex malt body and sharp licorice and caramel notes with a strong smokey bourbon finish, bold but not overpowering.
Full body, low carbonation, strong warming mf, chewy.
Overall, loved it, thought this twas excellent for the style. I think I like bcbs a touch more, very similar beers minus the heavier caramel instead of choc and coffee in bcbs. Loved the licorice notes, maybe star anise? Would drink this anytime. Would not pay more than 15 bucks though.
