Poured from a bottle into a Hill Farmstead glass. Bought the bottle at the brewery.

A- Very dark orange bordering on ruby red with a nice one finger white head

S- Heavenly! Sweet toffee, caramel, vanilla, oak, and bourbon.

T- !!! Follows the nose. Such sweet caramel and vanilla. This was aged for nine months in bourbon barrels and you get such a sweet bourbon taste. At 14% abv, I don't know where they're putting the alcohol because it sure isn't in the beer. This is ridiculously drinkable and smooth.

M- Medium to thick. A little more carbonation than others, but it helps to move the high abv along.

O- This is a world-class beer. It is comparable to Pelican's MOAS, but it doesn't have the alcohol sting. I was fortunate enough to have this on the same day I had FW Sucaba on tap and this is just as good, if not better. Buy this, trade for it, just acquire it if you can. Since it doesn't have the hype as the others, you can probably get it for cheap, but let me tell you you, this deserves to be mentioned with the elite. 100/100!
