For what it's worth:
Thanks for the cool info FW!
Served in an Olde Hickory shaped-glass (the other side of the US from FW, according to my calculation).
A: Poured a gold/amber color, along with a slight, ring-like off-white head on the brew. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this was a DIPA.
S: I can tell this is boozy, but still fresh and delectable. Got a bit of coconut, melted Astro Pop, but overall, this was understated.
T: Coconut-like for sure. Seriously, this is definitely the primary taste to my mind. However, I could gulp this ALOT easier than the average BA beer, which told me lots. Imperial - yes, special - yes, bitter - absolutely not!
M: Actually, I found this HIGHLY drinkable for such a high-octane brew. Only splotchy lacing left on the glass, and the sweetness was quite delectable.
O: Man, what a great beer. Not sure the style, but still great nevertheless!

This ale was amazing and it will get better with age.
Appearance: Poured a lovely muted orange/amber in hue. Slight bottle conditioning added to a mild cloudiness as the bottle was emptied.
Aroma: was floral booze, bourbon, caramel, soft dark fruits and slight smoky tones.
Taste: Sweet Caramel, Burnt Brown Sugars Touch of Raisins and lovely floral boozy notes.
Earthy woody hops add to the ale with a playful bitterness.
Body: It was soft and smooth, only a hint of a sticky sweetness remained, they abv and hops dried it out a touch at the end.
Overall a wonderful ale, that I know will be even better with age, I hope to track down another bottle soon. Cheers!
