Redoing this this review for the 2013 version. Not sure if its a development of my palette or that this years version is a significant improvement (I would guess its my palette coming around to it), but I really dig this years version a lot more than last years.

Pours a chestnut, mahogany with a reddish hue and a nice light brown head. A nice big aroma; nice, sweet bourbon, some smooth dark cherries, pomegranate, some dark bread, oak, and sugary vanilla. Flavor offers bourbon (though the bourbon came out much stronger on tap than it did via the bottle), oak, dark cherries, dates, caramel, and some vanilla in the finish. A fuller mouthfeel, not too carbonated. Overall, enjoyed this so much more this year than last years. Also enjoyed this more on tap than from the bottle. Glad I gave this a second chance for sure.

A: Dark copper hue with a big and solid and thick head and good lacing

S: Subtle fruit--cherries, raisins; even a bit tart and musty and grassy with a touch of funk, oak, and bourbon

T: musty and funky with just a touch of oak and bourbon; tart and fruity and cheesy; some bready malts but there's some definite musty funk here with a spicy finish

F: Medium body and pretty creamy

O: A musty, funky, malty Belgian--another solid beer from these guys

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Hazy dark red amber with an excellent head.

Strange aroma is tart, fruity (including apricot) and mildly acerbic.

Flavor largely follows and is also mildly tart, but with a balance of bitter and sweet as well. A lot going on but not completely integrated or balanced.

Medium body and carbonation.
