2011 Bottle

App- A semi dark black with some brown highlights floating around the edges. Wouldn't you know this was carbonated and had a good 1 finger light brown head that fell to a couple lines of cling and a 1/8" ring of bubbles.

Smell- The majority of my scents are dominated by the brandy barrels. I get a little bit of dark chocolate, a little bit of the wood comes through and a lot of booze. Some notes of dark ruddled fruit round out the nose.

Taste- This was a very tasty albeit LARGE beer. The 12.5% is very evident. The beer opens with a prickly bourbon/brandy combination and then moves to a little bit of a light light chocolate note with a little bit of vanilla. The duality of the brandy/bourbon is quite nice but I thought lacked a bit of depth.

Mouth- A medium carbonation with a light-medium carbonation level. It was too prickly and I think needed to be a bit more smooth. I think a year would do this one well.

Drink- Overall, a good blended stout/strong ale beer. Had high notes of the ABV and some low notes with the prickly feel. I will come back to this one.
