Bottle brought to the recent tasting courtesy of exitmusic00. Thanks homie.
A- Pours a standard DL pitch black with a thin mocha head that leaves minimal lacing.
S- Similar to last year's Bourbon DL with loads of earthy bourbon upfront, oak, dark chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, dark fruit and wood with hints of vanilla and molasses
T- Again bourbon is prominent, but is smooth and complex with notes of dark fruits including raisins, fig, black cherry as well as roasted malt, vanilla, oak, molasses and some roasted malt.
M- Low to medium carbonation. A little hot, but the abv is still hidden fairly well.
O- A superb bourbon aged RIS that I consider to be a tad better than last year's DL PVW treatment. The bourbon is so smooth and well integrated into the base beer. It's incredible what barrels do to DL. My favorite treatment of the '12 varieties .
