16.9 oz bottle from Donald
Smokestack snifter.

Light hiss of the cap, pours a toffee-caramel color from the bottle, forms a molasses color in the snifter. A thin beige fingernail of head accompanies it with sparse dots of lacing on the side.

Deep, huge, cavernous aromas of dark chocolate, aged oak, honeycomb, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, bourbon, pecan, light hints of tobacco, faint floral notes, I literally have tears in my eyes because this is so fantastic.

HOLY SHIT this beer dude!!! Whoa!!! Caramel, pecan delights, brown sugar, tobacco, heavy deep rich dark chocolate, cannabis, mushroom, barleywine-like-perfume, hard toffee, bourbon, oak, more caramel, lactose, chili pepper, blueberry, coffee, and basil. What. The. Feck. This beer is absolutely, positively insane.

Feel is thick and viscous and sticky. A touch thin for what the flavor brings but I'm just complaining at this point. Nice carbonation to keep it lively, and the stickiness, yes, the stickiness.

Overall, this beer is absolutely flooring. I have to procure more.

Picked this up on a work trip to Fresno. Actually grabbed the last bottle. I love TS and I was sure to love this. Description read, “Our 10 Year Anniversary Ale "Blend of Barrel Aged Beers" - In 2007 we set out on a journey to grow the community and culture of craft beer in the central valley of California as one of the first regional craft breweries. This 10 Year Anniversary Ale celebrates the culmination of everything we have accomplished over the last decade. Our blended ale started with some of our favorite beers aged in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels for 9-24 months. We then curated a beautiful cuvee of flavors creating this decadent, silky smooth yet full-bodied blended ale that is truly one of a kind. 10% BA Sierra Dark Sky. 12% BA All The Mornings. 12% BA English Barleywine. 22% BA Double Brown Ale. 24% BA Midnight Lightning 20% BA Milk Stout.” Let’s go.

Poured a pitch black color with three fingers of frothy-to-rocky khaki tan head. Could see a few light bubbles. Good spotty lacing. World-class retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled cocoa, chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla, milk chocolate syrup, cacao, coffee malts and dark fruits. Had me really looking forward to it. (Smell - 4.50)

Taste was not quite as good as the nose, but still really good. Got milk chocolate, cocoa, smooth bourbon, vanilla, lightly toasted oak, cacao, coffee, chocolate milk, a touch of coconut and toffee. (Taste - 4.25)

Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, warming, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.50)

Another solid offering from Tioga-Sequoia. World-class. (Overall - 4.50)

Exceptional barrel character. Wood throughout the entire pallet. Vanilla, coconut, brown sugar, very very smooth.
