Poured into a snifter from a bomber bottled on 6/6/13. Warmed for 30 minutes before serving.
A: Pours nearly black with very little lacing, leaving behind a thin brown ring.
S: I love DIPAs with a strong nose feel. This excites the nose in a completely different way! At first, you are hit with strong bourbon and toasted coconut. Vanilla, chocolate and oak are also present. This has so much going on here that I have to keep smelling this before it hits the mouth.
T: This is very sweet at first, almost syrupy, with lots of coconut, chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon. A nice heat (more noticeable than the other 2 varients) complements the taste, leaving an even sweeter aftertaste.
M: Full-bodied to say the least!! This is very smooth and hides the ABV well at first (more noticeable when warmed). This is definitely a sipper!
O: Another outstanding and complex beer from Westbrook!! After having all 3 varients, I would rate them AB> Red Wine> Bourbon. You will not be disappointed by any of these beers.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cinnamon, chile, and bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with cinnamon and cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness and chile heat on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great bourbon barrel aromas and flavors but the apple brandy version is my favorite between the two treatments.
