Bomber poured into a Stella Artois chalice.

A: Dark and not very active. One finger head that dissipates to a light ring leading to thin soapy lacing. Has some legs!

S: Big oaky, vanillan up front with subtle roasted notes shining underneath. Has some of that big bourbon nose.

T: WHOA. Big as life and coming out of left field with a giant haymaker, It almost doesn't remind me of beer. Hot and boozy, verging on a hot boozy mess but very very complex while doing it. Minor roasted notes but they get engulfed in this big bourbon aged note.

M: thinner than nose and taste would predict. Filling without being overly thick, nor cloying nor overtly boozy. The heat is exceptionally subtle and quite welcome. Very oaky finish. Big vanilla.

O: It verges on hot boozy mess, but somehow just balances and teeters on the brink, then pulls it off. Nicely, I might add.

Loved this beer dark in color mild to medium head. So creamy and yet barrel aged. I couldn't get enough of this beer so lives up to its name. i could drink this beer all day long anywhere at any time. I happened to see where this beer was brewed so that is so freaking awesome kudos to new holland brewing company
