Served in a Bell's tulip glass at The Firkin.

Apparently the Firk went on a bourbon barrel binge this week. This positive proof pours a sleek obsidian (though this does lighten into a straight black-brown later on) topped by a healthy bit of sienna foam. The nose comprises figs, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, light whiskey, chocolate, light apple, red grapes, and a touch of oak. The taste holds notes of chocolate, red grapes, light whiskey, roasted malts, molasses, oak, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, red apple skin, a touch of anise, light papaya (I know, right?), and some very light maple syrup. It's all good, baby. The body is a hefty medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a smooth, nearly chewy feel. Overall, one of the best things I've had from Bell's yet. Good times had by all (and by all, I mean me).

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

had a full growler of this one either last year (or the year before), sorry about the delay.

S: immediately i get a oak and bourbon aroma that is well balanced by dark fruits, chocolate, and alcohol

T: a very flavorful beer. like the nose, it has a dominant bourbon and oak that that is balanced about by a caramel backbone that has a splash of vanilla notes. the creamy finish puts an added content to it that allows one to want to take another sip.

overall, this is a damn good beer and the alcohol is very well hidden in the taste

Serving type: growler
