The look was a bit off, muddy, watery chocolate, the nose is dark fruits , raisins, dates with hints of bourbon barrel. The taste is similar to the nose with a huge raisin date flavor and wafering off with a solid bourbon barrel dry finish. Just the right touch of heat and sweetness to meld with the barrels. Mouth feel is middle to heavy with a creamy texture.overall this is a fantastic ale that ages gracefully I loved it!

Here I have the remenants of a thank you package from cfh64. Brad has to be one of the top Ba's !

A: it poured thin enough I could see thru it, but no light thru the glass. Poured the bottle all at once into a huge dogfish snifter that easily holds the whole bottle. Had lots of head like it was going to have high carbonation . It quickly reduced and had minimal lacing.

S: at first I get this weird barrel funk , followed by fruit and then goes bourbon barrel.

T: mild roastiness up front , oak , fruit with a nice blended flavor of the above. Really nice .

M: it body is slightly medium-ish could be fuller but it works ! Creamy and well intergrated . I love it more with every sip !

O: stellar !! Seek out and hoard. Sell your girlfriend. Maybe down grade your car. Stock pile !!!
