22oz into a snifter.

A. Murky black with reddish hues.

S. Huge tannic nose. Marshmallow, caramel, vanilla cream, milk chocolate, pleasant wood, bourbon.

T. More woody bourbon, fudge, vanilla and coconut, bitter cocoa, more bourbon heat.

M. Medium-bodied, silky, light carbonation, not very thick but a bit silky.

O. An enjoyable beer if you like bourbon. The base stout is still perceptible but this is all about the barrel-aging.

Served in a chimay chalice, split with my father

A - pours a deep chocolate brown, initially lots of head, fades quickly to a ring of lacing.

S - great nose, chocolate, malt, vanilla, bourbon

T -very complex, chocolate, coffee initially, followed by intense bourbon, then lingering vanilla and hops

M - thick, smooth, little carbonation, for 11%, alcohol is well hidden

O - fantastic offering from CW, first of the anniversary series that I've been lucky enough to have, very glad to have had this one, too bad I don't have another to hold on to

Thanks! Snifter. Very dark brown with an inch of light brown foam. Slightly smoky aroma with big fudge and toffee notes. Huge bourbon component with roasted grains, vanilla, and oak. Touch of oxidation with a little coconut. The nose is amazing. The flavor exhibits a firm oak presence with lots of toffee. Notes of vanilla blend with roast and chocolate. Alcohol heat is present but not harsh. Big bourbon character throughout with lots of oak. I liked this a lot, about as much as Fourteen Fourteen, though my score of that beer doesn't accurately reflect how much I like it. Anyway, Fifteen is fantastic.
