2014 bottle poured into a snifter.
A- pours murky dark brown with about half a finger of mocha head that disappears quickly.
S- sweet molasses, caramel, figs, vanilla, cinnamon, booze soaked raisins. Very nice. Barrel notes are present.
T- sweet caramel with some fizz, molasses, then finishes with very smooth vanilla and brandy barrel notes. Perfect balance. You taste the cinnamon in the back of your throat. Incredibly smooth for being 11.5%.
M- a little bit too much carbonation for my taste but it's refreshing.
O- awesome beer from block 15. This one gets overlooked because of previous infections but should be seriously looked it. Even fresh, it drinks as it's been aged for years. Worth seeking out especially if you like winter beers

A little extra sweetness but awesome beer. On tap at beermongers, no infection noticed so I can't comment on how the bottles taste.
