22oz bottle of the recently released 2014 vintage. Poured into a Cantillon taster 7/7/2014.
A- Pitch black body, not substantially thick but certainly has oily brown legs. Half finger brown head that disappears quickly, par for the course. Again, the legs on this is actually substantial.
S- Chocolate fudge, bourbon, milk chocolate, hints of coffee. Very much reminds me of chocolate frosting here.
F- Bourbon, dark chocolate, a bit of lactose, and chocolate icing. It's very rich, chocolate fudge-forward with a nice complementary bourbon flavour. Flavour profile reminds me a lot of Central Waters' Sixteen, actually.
M- Medium bodied, not particularly thick or fudgy in comparison to Sixteen, but substantial enough that it does not detract in any way from the rest of the beer. Low in carbonation, smooth with a nice chocolate brownie finish.
O- Very similar beer to CW Sixteen; you can't go wrong with either one if you are deciding which one to open tonight. This brings a big chocolate fudge cake flavour profile mixed in with bourbon, so if that sounds good to you, go get yourself a bottle.
