2012 vintage into a snifter
A: Pours a really dark amberish ruby color. A very thin, and quickly vanishing white bubbly head.
S: Loads of vanilla, caramel, bourbony goodness. Some dark fruit sweetness too, raisins and plums perhaps?
T: Vanilla, molasses, caramel, and a little burnt sugar flavor. A warming booze presence with a generous bitter hop dosage as well. Good, but age will do this one well.
M: Very nice creamy texture. Really nice
O: Really good, but I think a year or 2 will do some good. Alcohol warming is pretty strong, and will likely mellow over time. Still very good now though.
