look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Poured a caramel color with reddish hues and rocky yet minimal tan head. The head quickly fades leaving a mere dose of bubbles and spotty lacing.

S: Holy dark fruits; figs, raisins, plums. Caramel, toffee, wood and bourbon. A very stikging beer on the nose bu man was it plesant.

T: A tsunami of booze soaked figs and raisins greet the taste buds initially, followed by a wash of heat, caramel, toffee, loads of sugar, waves of molasses, vanilla, Earth, wood and more sticky sugar. The finish is hot, stikcy yet decadent and oh so tasty.

M: Lower carbonation but big bodied, just right for the style. Loads of flavor whop the palate minites after tasting, mouthfeel is warming, sweet and I almost dont want to swallow.

O: Probably the bst Bruery beer I have consumed to date. The style was on point and the barrel again was fantastic! Damn was this good.
