on tap at the brew pup 24/1/13 into brandy snifter

A one of the darker BW's I've seen it almost looks black, lots of slow moving streams creeping up the side feeding a short lived mocha finger of foam that leaves some random lace.
I'm not sure if this one changes color when it warms but it seems to get lighter as I drank it, perhaps the round snifter made it look darker then it is

S woody fruity notes come out with plum and very faint smokey notes and caramel with some candied cherry

T little coco and some faint booze come out in the mouth that I didn't smell, there's a barrel involved but I can't tell what type. everything I smells still there but with a little added complexity, nice mix of of barrel, burnt sugars, and candied fruits

M medium-full, a little oily in the mouth but stick on the lips, no real heat going down but you can feel it in your chest

O pretty solid beer, I wish I had more information about it, pretty mellow so I'm guessing its already been aged for some time

by far the best brew I can remember trying from the Grizzly Paw, props to them for brewing some big creative stuff, perhaps I need to revisit some of their brews because this ones a big step in the right direction
