Purchased a bottle of the 2007 at a local Big Ten on a bank-account depleting purchase. Special thanks to NitroGen for his assistance in helping me get the SA Utopia glass that I sampled from!
APPEARANCE: A beautiful copper, amber look with absolutely no head and no carbonation. Leaves a beautiful glow inside an equally beautiful glass.
SMELL: Smells like a bourbon. Strong oak and molasses smell. Alcohol is also very noticeable.
TASTE: Wow...the alcohol hits first, but the taste is exceptional. Molasses, candy, vanilla...almost like a bourbon with a bit more candy. Excellent taste that is as deep and intricate as any beer or liquor that I have ever tasted.
MOUTHFEEL: Creamy, thick, and extremely enjoyable.
DRINKABILITY: Due to the amount of alcohol, I would have to knock this down one notch, but it isn't in any way because of the taste. It is an incredible beer to sip!
Overall, an exceptional beer/liquor. Well worth the money for me to try once in my life and exceptional to sip on. Will definitely consider purchasing another one if I can ever get my hands on it.
