2010 Vintage...bottled December. Other 2010 vintages bottled in April.
A - Pours a dark brown, near black with brown around the edges. Tiny dark beige bubbles. No lacing.
S - Bourbon nose, roast coffee and chocolatte though the bourbon is the standout.
T - Bourbon sweetness followed by a resiny sugar, molasses then chocolatte in the back. Some fig characteristic as it warms. Chocolatte comes thru in the back as I drink more. Nice bourbon flavor
M - More rich than I anticipated given the appearance of the body. Nice carb, sticky sweetness in the back
D - A very nice beer at 9.5%. Don't get any alcohol.
Overall a very good barrel aged beer from CW. Not my favorite of the 3; Barley wine and Peruvian Morning top this but not by much.

Straight to the nitty gritty: no doubt, this is good. But the thing that doesn't make it great is that it is too sweet for me.
Now that Raul has that off of his thinly sculpted sized 38 chest...
Right when Raul cracked this bad boi, the aroma was a hell of a surprise like getting a Nintendo 64 on Christmas. Bourbon, vanilla, chocolate... Like Raul was touched by an angel, or a Victoria's Secret Model, really.
Let's move on, shall we?
Even if she is devilishly beautiful, if she's too clingy, that's definitely a flaw. And with this beautiful beast, is a touch of sweetness that is a bit over the top for the Raul man.
Everything else is pretty much Thanksgiving gravy - actually, it's a bit thin in the mouth, but Raul has said his peace.
