A: Pours a beatiful dark burnt caramel that had a fantastic head on it.
S: The complexity defintely starts on the nose lending outrageous bourbon and vanilla bean characteristics with subtle hints of the oak at the end.
T: For a fresh bottle of this beer, i was astounded by the low heat as well as the ridiculous complexity and craftsmenship that went into creating this beast of a brew. Super silky smooth with bellowing vanilla, caramel, and oak joyfullness in every sip that is complemented by a strikingly subtle bourbon character.
M: This beer does it correctly by not killing off the flavors with overwhelming sweetness like so many big beers do. It maintains a reletively dry presence which allows for the participants to actually enjoy the flavors presented.
O: Wow this is one beer that takes the stage and does not dissapoint. Beautiful on every level, i could only imagine how this masterpiece ages. If you find a bottle, do not hesitate to buy and enjoy.
