11% this hefty boy got corked up And drank over three nights. Damn so good, it was probably best on night two of only because by the third night a lot of the carbonation had blown off. Really nice though. Ahem...

Excellent whiskey-soaked cocoa nibs, some Woody notes on the finish. Medium light mouthfeel (the usual slickness that happens in bourbon bbl beers). Sweet milk chocolate notes.

12/24/18 (Las Vegas, NV): $32.25 1 pint 9 oz bottle purchased at Modern Times Lomaland Fermentorium 8/23/18 and shared with brother David, poured into snifters. Black pour, light tan ring head. Oranges and bourbon the predominant aroma, chocolate emerged as the beverage warmed. Excellent balanced taste, orange and chocolate taste balanced by a smooth bourbon. Somewhat chalky mouth feel, thin texture. Overall good pour,but not the best in the Devil's Teeth series.

Post dinner Thanksgiving beer with Matt Murray.

Dark, near black body with a thin, beige collar. Huge orange zest character. Chocolate orange candies abound. Additional notes of barrel and hazelnut emerge mid palate. Medium full body with soft carbonation. Tasty.

Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass. Bottled Sept 15th 2016.

Dark simple walnut body and fairly opaque, but up to the light a touch of reddish orange and brown can be seen just below the head with clarity. Very good forming foam head and creamy tight bubbles of two fingers, even an almost orange tinged dark khaki to light tan color. Thin but big bubbled collar as it settles with a whispy nice top. Great solid looking beer.

Aroma is just gangbusters. Creamy smelling and no joke on the additions. Creamy hazelnut whaffing with light touches of milk chocolate and orange citrus. Litterally smells like jellied orange fruit, covered in sugar with chocolate. Just like the stuff that would be in your stocking for Christmas. Wow. Shockingly impressive. Mind just blown.

Palate teases, with flirtations of true perfection. A little bit better than your average mouthfeel, hinting and almost creamy warm brandy quality with a touch of playful dull fizz. Mid palate is just a rush of great quality. Silky light chocolate and orange smack the lips and roll of the tongue with an almost Grand Marnier flavor and matching liquer like warmth. Faint touches of dipped liquored cherries and nougat mixing in with each passing sip. Jesus.. This is unreal. Finishes with a bit of char and hop bitterness to bring everything back into play. Almost smokey barrrel notes mixing in with an eau du vie quality, but really borders if possibly jumps the line into brandy and fruity liquer greatness.

Amazing blend of flavors. Even at this imperial and high expected abv, there is still a bit of booze but it's a dam good one in flavor and feel. Runs a bit hot, but it would be one of the few things I can find a fault with this amazing put together brew.
