Had this on-tap at the Bell's Fermented Eclipse Party at Stub's and Herbs - June 26, 2010. Had about 18oz total and decided to jot down a few notes on the top of my to-go box. Each served in a 6 oz glass...one at a time:
A- Black as night, cannot see through it at all. Hardly any lacing, very little head if any. Toward the middle and end of this beer it appears brownish around the edges, slightly transparent with a light ring of foam.
S- Bourbon Barrel with hints of cream, sweet vanilla, bits of chocolate but mostly vanilla. When its cold, its very clean smelling...biting the nostrils. Very nice.
T- Very smooth, caramel, brown sugar, bourbon barrel, cream the whole way through, slight boozy at first then calms down and vanilla toward the end. A bit of a coffee after taste.
M- Lovely, awesome, very smooth, perfect carbonation, satin and silk. All you could ask for in a beer.
D- Does not feel like a 10.5% at all - way too easy and probably very dangerous. I could have drank this all night and for breakfast in the morning. Very happy I was able to try this and would very much like some more. Good job, Bell's...now make some more!
Serving type: on-tap
