Big & Tall Release #1... No bottle date, but looks to be an old style label. Could be original?

A - Pours a hazy brown with a light tan two finger head. The head really sticks around and light lacing.

S - Sweet on the nose. Malts, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla and bourbon.

T - The sweetness is a bit amplified here. Dark fruits, bourbon, caramel and brown sugar.

M - Medium bodied and high carbonation to almost too carbonated. Body is smooth and the abv is well hidden probably due to the sweetness.

O - I liked it. Very enjoyable. It would be rated higher if the sweetness was dialed down a bit.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter glass.

A: Deep murky brown with almost non existent head. Zero lacing.

S: Caramel, sweet malts, bourbon.

T: Caramel, dark fruits, and bourbon. Some subtle hints of oak.

M: A bit thinner than I was expecting but still enjoyable. Almost no carbonation to the point of being flat.

O: Nice brew. The flavors are enjoyable and the 13% alcohol is fairly well hidden, but it lacks in carbonation.

Sweet malts with hints of fruit, the bourbon gets a little stronger to the end, touch of vanilla, the 13% are well masked by the overall very sweet beer. Molasses comes through when beer warms above 50 F. Well carbonated and pleasant as a candy like sipping beer.
