Opened a bottle from 2014. It pours pitch black and very viscous. Almost no carbonation. Smells of raisins, vanilla, cherries, bourbon, and a meaty type aroma (umami). Taste is dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, and a hint of soy. Mouth feel is super slick with almost no carbonation. Overall, this was worth the wait. I was pretty sure this beer was too hot for me fresh and I just found it in the back of my beer stash, nice find.

Very interesting taste bourbon stout and the fruity coconut mixture. Great rich brown color with a small head and just the right amount of carbination. The aroma is very light.

Pours a totally opaque black with little to no foam. Nose is sweet dark caramel and candied fruit with hint of bourbon. Taste is very smooth. Up front it is moderately bitter, lots of rich flavors, toffee, chocolate, molases, etc This starts to fade and then sweetness takes over towards the end, not overpoweringly so, beer finishes with a hint of bourbon bite. Quite lovely and a great sipper.

When on tap these LA beers can be so much nicer appearance and mouthfeel wise. This one hit those brown and black notes, tan head, 3/5". Sweet boozy, bourbony, malty aroma, with mild oak impressions.

This one blends a lot of good stuff, chocolate malt, bourbon, brandy sweetness, char, vanilla, toffee, caramel.

Very nice, but still not gonna buy bottles of it. Draft only for me, customer service too poor, price too high to take a chance on bottles.

Vintage 2014

a: nothing beautiful to look at. Hardly any head whatsoever. Hardly any lacing whatsoever.
s: bourbon, dark fruits. candied sugar
t: bourbon, cherries, chocolate.
m: low carbonation. slightly syrupy. medium body.
o: An interesting beer which I quite enjoyed. The blend works well in creating an unique beer. The one negative is I wish it had a touch more carbonation. A sipper in the best way however. I recommend giving this beer a try. Perfect accompaniment for contemplating on a winter evening.
