Thanks to F2brewers for this one.

Poured from a 375ml bottle, no #freshbeer info.

Pours a very dark color with a thin, almost non-existent head, probably due to the barrel aging. Aroma is strong, molasses, bourbon. Taste has a bit of smoke to it, sweet brandy with next to no carbonation. Quite the beast and a sipper for sure.

Bottle shared by Umberto at Curran's tasting.

Pours a deep, dark stout-like black, with a small half inch head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass. The head descends into an oily film fairly quickly.

Smells like bourbon, brandy, chocolate, vanilla, and oak.

Rich bourbon-soaked brownie batter flavor up front, just decadent, a little bit of espresso flavor, some boozy brandy flavors, and some nice dark fruits flavor- cherries, plums, raisins, etc.

Thick bodied, almost motor oil like, very viscous. Creamy, smooth, thick mouthfeel, very low carbonation. Drinkable despite the body and ABV.

This one was a surprise, it's interested me for a while, but I never thought I'd be able to try it. Thanks Umberto!

Poured from 500 ml bottle into Stone taster glass. 2013 vintage.

A: Pours dark black with zero head.

S: Bourbon, vanilla, cacao nibs. Some slight dark fruits in the background. Maybe a hint of cherry.

T: Lots of bourbon character. Vanilla and chocolate notes are fairly prominent. A bit of cherry and other fruits.

M: Full bodied but almost flat. No carbonation to be found at all.

O: Very nice flavors, but it lacked carbonation. Maybe a bad cork seal?
