had last night at a tasting thanks to YOITSARCH for bringing
it pour a nice color very little head
this bottle was 2012 version so had a year of age on it which did it wonderfully
the heat mellow out a bit and the flavors definitely came out
think maybe another year and this would be ripe wish he had another bottle for next year lol
anyway it is drinking really nice and still has a hint of heat but overall
this is a great bottle

Fresh 2013 vintage

A: Murky copper with a orange/gold hue. Typical BA head - a vigorous pour yielded a substantial big bubble light beige head. It quickly is reduced to a small ring around the glass.

S: Huge, delicious, typical FW. Rich caramel, toasted coconut, vanilla and toffee all blend together. There is a great organic woody oak flavor as well that smooths out the sweetness. There are subtle notes of light-skinned berries, cocoa powder, and mild alcohol.

T: Very rich caramel and toffee, coconut and vanilla sweetness outline the experience. At the back end there are notes of light cocoa and smooth toasted oak.

P: Incredibly smooth. Medium-full body with very soft, velvety carbonation that's almost unnoticeable but still there, definitely not flat. It allows all the flavors to present themselves. Perfect, really.

O: An absolute knock out. So well balanced, appropriately rich, and obviously blended with care and intelligence. The alcohol is barely noticeable, but it will be interesting to see what age does to it.
