look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
2008 bottle that I had in the cellar.
A - Poured a nice cloudy orange. Very little head, almost immediately dissipated.
S - Strong scent of bourbon. You'd think that this came from Tennessee not Portland, Maine.
T - Fruity notes off set by the strong taste of bourbon. I've been cellaring this for close to 3 years now. I'm sure the taste is extremely different now from where it once was.
D - Didn't realize this was 11%. The alcohol is definitely evident but it doesn't overpower the brew. Goes down smooth and warms your insides :-)
M - Smooth, very little carbonation, tastes like a cask offering that has been bottled. I was concerned that I had kept this in the cellar too long but that is not the case. A very good beer.
