Poured and shared amongst friends SBS with Red Wine, poured into a SP stem

A - Dark as night here, almost completely opaque. Small dark tan foam head that recedes back into the glass. This one has some legs on it.

S - Smell is complex here, you can definitely smell the whiskey coming through on this followed by oak, vanilla, dark chocolate. You can definitely taste the base here as there is still head on the nose as well as notes of cinnamon. Good stuff

T - Starts off with a nice hit from the whiskey and oak as well as vanilla notes. Then come the chocolate carmelly notes. The finish is where the base shines, cinnamon and peppers all day. The heat lingers just long enough and leaves you satisfied.

M - Not quite as thick as I expected, but this is no reason to dock this beer. We'll say medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Creamy and goes down smooth.

O - This beat out Red Wine Cake, although where red wine lacks in tastes, makes up for it in it's complexity. I would definitely seek this out if you are willing to dish out the ammo. This is a fantastic beer and resides somewhere within my top 10 beer that I have had.

Really rich mouthfeel. Big spice notes including chili and cinnamon are still there. There's a light booze on the nose and on the front end. Some vanilla hints from the barrel. Just really rich. Tastes like mexican chocolate cake. The JD adds something to this beer and tames the spice a bit for me. Well done.
