Pours black with a ruby hue when held to the light. Finger length head that dissipates somewhat quickly and leaves a ring of lacing. Nice carbonation which is kind of surprising. Smells of lots of dark fruits like raisin, plums, and figs. Also get some chocolate, oak, tiny bit of whiskey, more bourbon, slight funkiness to it. Not as boozy as I thought, but still some alcohol presence on the nose. Taste is pretty complex. Starts with sweet raisins and chocolate along with some bourbon. Almost get a salty, funky taste. Then the malt comes in and provides more sweetness, as well as breadiness, some nuttiness, oak, still more bourbon. Then the finish is more breadiness and a toast-like quality, tons of dark fruit like more raisins and plums, funkiness, molasses, carmel, definitely some heat from the whiskey. The whiskey takes the place of the bourbon on the finish. Not as much of a mess as I thought it would be, as the flavors meld nicely on the finish as it warms up; however, it is quite cloying. Pretty full body with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel. Although this is a year old, some age could do this beer some good. Not bad.

Batch # 02/1492. Bottle date: 2/18/13. Poured in to tulip.

A - Black with one finger of medium brown head.

S - A huge funk aroma and a big tartness are evident up front with some lighter oak and chocolate aromas hidden in the background.

T - The tartness and funk from the nose are much less evident but are still a big component of the palate. Oak, whiskey, char and roast with traces of dark fruit.

M - Medium to full body. Creamy. Light carbonation.

Served in a Local Option cervoise.

Well, my homeboychick J.R. wussed out on our erstwhile continuation of our quest through the Jewbelation series, so VDubb's gonna haveta fill in for this final step (as of now, anyway). This stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a half-finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, whiskey barrel, dark fruits, and a light haze of raspberry. The taste brings in more of the same, with a stronger sense of bourbon and a bit more dark fruits (richer this time). The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a kinda odd beer, but one that generally pleases.
