No bottling date, but this is the most recent release. Probably a couple months old.

A: A deep dark brown pour with a good sized light brown head. Fluffy, effervescent head that fades out fairly quickly. No sign of lacing. Moderate head retention.

S: Heavy caramel and toffee, probably from the barrels and from the malt combined. Light oak. Light herbal quality.

T: More of the same. Heavy, heavy caramel up front with just a hint of toffee. Toffee brightens through the middle and becomes more prominent along with a bunch of oak. Light dark fruits throughout. A heavy breadiness lingers in the aftertaste.

M: Somewhat heavy and sweet. Lower carbonation. Smooth.

O: A really nice doppelbock. The barrel aging accentuates the sweet maltiness with more layers of sweetness. Doesn't make it overpowering at all, just adds complexity. Great balance, great drinkability and overall a fine execution. One of the best doppelbocks I've had, if I'm honest.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark, clear brown, with a small half inch head, and only a little bit of lacing.

Smells like plums, raisins, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and bourbon.

The bourbon flavor in this is incredibly well-integrated, very smooth, and mixes well with the vanilla, oak, caramel, brown sugar, figs, light chocolate. The ABV and booze is hidden incredibly well, just so smooth. Oh my god.

Medium bodied, could be slightly thicker I suppose. Low carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel.

This might have been better than any of the Framinghammer variants, this was just incredible.
