Nice dark tan head, a little fizzy, quickly dissipating to a swirly residue. Jet black body,
Bourbon notes up front in the aroma, with nuts, vanilla, toffee, a hint of coffee, and dark fruit.
Flavor reminds me of Sucaba, with decadent notes of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and toasted coconut. There's also a boozy dark fruit presence. Toasted malts fill out the rest of the profile with caramel and toffee.
Noticeable alcohol heat and evaporation. Thick and sticky. Lively with a pleasant sting; easy to hold and chew despite the heat.
It's tough to draw the line in this brew behind more traditional quads and FW's delicious barrel aging effects. The latter certainly dominate, but impressively smoothly so, while thick quad fruits and grains fill out the rest of the profile,
Incredibly complex, and very damn tasty.
Serving type: on-tap
