4.03/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A-Pours a clear deep burned orange color with a solid, medium, creamy dark ivory colored head that has good retention and ok lacing.
S-The aroma is right on point for the style! With TUNS of sweet, fresh baked bread and dark fruits and burned caramel. After the beer warms a little, I think I'm picking up on some noble type hops as well.
T-The flavor is a little less impressive than the aroma, but still very nice. *(as the beer warms up a tad, it becomes a lot better)*First I get sweet bread, backed by the caramel, but the sweetness is perfectly balanced by the medium to mild bitterness. As it warms, the dark fruits are coming out a bit. I love to experience how a beer opens up as it warms, and this one is a prime suspect for just the thing. Prunes are there for sure, maybe some rainins and mild hop notes too!
M-This beer has a medium to full body that it very creamy, with a semi-sweet finish.
O-Overall, this beer was very nice to drink! I highly suggest this beer. I'm glad I found it in the fridge at my local cigar shop. We can't even get this where I live here in south texas, so I was excited to see this beer. There was a whole case of it! And it's fresh too. I don't even know how brought this down here, but thanks to whoever you are. And Cheers everyone!

2012 release; poured into a goblet
A: Clear amber. Some lacing. An off-white half finger head that dissipates quickly.
S: Bready malts, grain, hay, barley.
T: Sweet, malty with molasses and bourbon heavily mixed in. Nutty. A bit of chocolate. Very smooth. Almost like a shot of Kentucky bourbon. Nice.
M: Medium with medium carbonation.
O: Looks like a year really set this one straight. A great sipper. The bourbon really makes this one a solid brew.
