Special thanks to Kels for hooking Bamadog and I up at a tasting to celebrate her new job. This was aged from 2008.
A - Black as midnight - very dark - small head leaves some decent lacing behind. Very inviting
S - Oak, Coffee, bourbon, alcohol
T - Bourbon, coffee, alcohol present - fantastic flavor
M - Alcohol is dominant for me in the mouthfeel but in a good way. Very nice balance and feeling. This beer is very smooth. Much smoother than KBS.
D - The drinkability for this is very high considering the higher ABV. I could have easily had more of this. Wow. What a fantastic beer. Believe the hype on this one.
