Aged for about one year. Very dark appearance with light brown head. Aroma is a semisweet raisin aroma. Taste is also a pleasant semisweet raisin that has a little mild alcohol burn.

3.88/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Stark shiny black with almost no head after a quick display of a tan blanket, except for a thin sliver of necklace that remains.

Smell is chocolate syrup with maple bourbon and candied pecans. As it warms, marshmallow and nougat arise, with more bourbon and whiskey scorching the nose.

Taste is hot bourbon and brandied raisin with chocolate syrup and just complex fire. This is Bruery level heat if ever I've felt it, finishing with a touch of light molasses, toffee and red fruits.

Slick and sticky, there's a crisp carbonation with a semi-dry finish, but it's hot af. This will hit you like a ton of bricks in no time flat.

The aroma is heavily tilted towards bourbon, with a touch of roast and chocolate behind it. The beer pours an opaque black with a ring of tan head clinging to the glass. With the first sip, this beer makes its presence known. It's a beast. The bourbon is more subdued in the flavor, balanced nicely against the roast, chocolate, and sweetness of the base Gavel Slammer. The alcohol is there, and it has a warming finish. Full bodied, and a rich mouthfeel. This is another world class beer from Fred.
