12 oz brown bottle with the words vim & vigor crossed out with a black marker. Packaged in date notched on the side of the label.
Appearance: Fizzy with a soda like crackling, no head above the pitch black brew with the higher alcohols it is not a surprise. Thin film clings to the glass as it is swirled around. Cant really knock the head too much, these are the kinds of beer that thrive elsewhere.
Smell: Gargantuan solvent fumes permeate the nostrils. Creamy vanilla, smells of aged port with some wood tones as well as some chocolate and roasted notes chocolate covered raisins?
Taste & Mouthfeel: The little carbonation that was there is mostly knocked out from the pouring. Super creamy and slightly syrupy with a drawn-out slickness. Extremely prominent alcohol character but not too much to handle, seems a bit together and mellow after a few sips. Hints of chocolate and charcoal (barrel pitch). Bourbon in a woody vanilla way entangles the palate with a creamy sweetness and the alcohol infiltrates the soul as it slowly warms the body.
Drinkability & Notes: Right up there with Samuel Adams Utopias MMII, worth the $9 a bottle. Ill be buying more of this and saving them for dismal weather days. High regards to the brewers for putting such a unique and stellar brew into the market.
