This brew has been in my cellar for 2+ years and am eager to sample it.

Poured dark brown mahoghany in color w/ a skim coat tan head w/ no lacing on the glass. Prototypical BA BW appearance. Aromas of dark roasted chocolate, molasses, dark currants, bourbon, vanilla, and oak. The taste was of warming dark fruits and charred malts, w/ a touch od brown sugar, followed by strong bourbon and vanilla. For me this was still way too boozy even w/ 2+ years of age on it. Medium bodied.

Disappointed majorly by this brew! Very complex in the flavors, but the bourbon barrel aging was simply too much and completely overwhelmed the base beer.

Glad I got a chance to sample, but now really looking forward to sampling the base beer(Stormwatcher's Winterfest).

Sort of a letdown. Paid like $25 to get this bottle and expected a lot given reviews. It fell flat. Thick, syrup-like feel with not much depth or inherent complexity. Love Pelican, but this just missed the mark for me.
