750ml corked and caged bottle poured into snifter 2013. bottle consumed on 12/10/16

A: Jet black with almost no head at all no matter how aggressive the pour.

S: Toffee, honey, leather, maple syrup, vanilla, chocolate.

T: Very sweet lots of soft toffee and vanilla. There are hints of alcohol and maple some licorice but its light. A little chocolate but its mostly toffee sweetness and vanilla.

M: Very soft carbonation almost none existent. Body is medium with a little slickness from the alcohol makes it feel heavier.

O: This is a great beer that I am excited to see has held up to aging I am excited to try it fresh. The maple is very defined in the aftertaste and through the middle.

black as night. Bitter dark chocolate, vanilla and Bourbon booziness. Bit of oak. Some earthy, maple sweetness but never drinks too sweet. Medium feel. Super balanced. Delicious.

Serving type: 750 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass (2014 vintage)

Pours a deep ebony black with a crack of light at the outermost edge. Some carbonation is present but settles to film, chocolate colored bubbles from an aggressive pour. Smell is of chocolate, vanilla, pleasant syrup sweetness, bourbon, and a slight oak. Some dark fruit permeate here and there but this beer is very dessert like. The taste is superior to the smell. Initial drink shows some bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate and slight dark fruit. After that it is all maple sweetness mixed with milk chocolate that finishes with some bourbon aftertaste, not too intense but the taste is there. Feel is thick, viscous, with some carbonation to not make the beer flat. Perfect for the flavor profile. Overall, this is a great BA RIS. People tend to sleep on this, if you see it I would highly recommend buying it. Ages well.

Wow! A beautiful beer. Deep chocolate color. Wonderful smell. Incredibly smooth considering that it is 18.9%! I think this is the best beer that I have had. Certainly in the top three.
