2016 vintage. Bottle poured into a snifter

Black, thin brown head.

Complex nose - bourbon-soaked raisins, dark chocolate, coffee. Coffee presence is fairly restrained.

First sip - wow. Coffee opens up more here, but all of the other elements in the nose keep coming too - bourbon, dark chocolate, raisin, plum. Warming finish. Sweet but not overly so.

Full-bodied, medium carbonation

Bottled November 14, 2016

Dark mahogany, close to black. A slow pour raised negligible mocha head. Spotty lacing.
Piercing coffee, chocolate, bourbon, plummy scents. A bit of alcohol tingle on the nose.

Taste starts out mellow coffee, stone fruit, then the bourbon kicks in, mid-swallow. Then a wave of sweetness. Delicious fruity aftertaste. Flavors develop as the glass warms.
So many sensations out of a sip of this, full-bodied with alternating bitter and fruity bourbon notes. Lasting carbonation, such as there is.

Spectacular result of barrel aging, the 16% ABV does not intrude, but should be respected.

12oz bottle stamped Oct 28 2014 purchased at Moonshine Liquors in Harwich. Dark chocolate color and chocolate/strong coffee nose. A viscous, almost sticky feel with strong coffee and chocolate flavors coming through with a definite boozy feel that almost overpowered any taste. Definitely a sipper for those who enjoy booze with their beer. Not our favorite but glad we tried it.
