Ok, so I held onto this long enough. Bought this bottle at the release in September on my first ever trip to Hill Farmstead. Bottle is dated 5/2013. Poured into a stemmed Hill Farmstead glass.

A) Jet black with no head and no carbonation whatsoever. Obviously this comes to no surprise , after all we're talking about a brew that had needed over 2 years before it was put in a bottle.

S) WOW. You get the bourbon and the wine, a slight edge to the wine. The booziness of both port and bourbon are there too.

T) OK, I'm a novice at this but I'll do my best. The bourbon hits first with vanilla, chocolate, caramel, and oak. Next you get the port which when blended with the bourbon gets a bit of raspberry/wine combo, this aspect seems to really shine as it warms. Quite exquisite and surprising. The booze is still prevalent here too.

M) Not overly thick, but a nice coating as I sip. It allows for the flavors to linger between sips (which is nice since I'm nursing this puppy).

O) Hands down one of the amazing beers I've ever had the privilege to try. Super complex and something that will be hard to beat.
