best after 07/23/13. bomber into tulip.
A: pours a very, very dark brown. head is a shade of brown and frothy. can almost see the legs on this thing. good lacing.
S: licorice and a lot of wood. oak. dark fruits. maybe a little bit of coconut? I think I am getting that from the oak and the sweet sugars more than an actual coconut.
T: a lot of chocolate. a shitload of oak. a little bit of booze, but a pleasant amount. not too hot. figs in chocolate. or maybe just figs. some dark and sweet fruit. a little bit tangy. a lot of tobacco. wondering how I didn't notice that the first time. bitter dark chocolate reigns into the finish.
M: incredibly smooth. a silken mouthfeel. fucking full bodied to the max.
D: never had the pleasure of having this fresh, but approaching the 1 year after the best after date I would say this is drinking mighty fine right now with plenty of complexity and no flaws. very rich, a dessert amongst beers.
Serving type: bottle
