2017 vintage. I'm a little surprised by how this beer is aging - it seems to have cooled down a bit, and now all of those jammy berry notes are coming forward. The honey and berries are quite good, while the subtle barrel notes lend pleasant contrast to the sweetness.

I was aghast when I first tried this beer - it is getting so much better with age.

Pours a deep brown almost prune juice like. Tan foam head with hints of purple. Nose is of raisins, prunes and fresh dough. Taste is extremely sweet. A beer to share for shure. Bread pudding comes to mind when having this. Intense raisin flavors with notes of sweet dough, honey, caramel and vanilla. Some tart berries trying to peak through but the cloying sweetness wipes out much of that. Finishes a bit hot with a slight bourbon burn. Medium body with a silky finish. This beer is really good and complex although a 6 ounce after dinner pour would suffice.

Rich brown color with a reddish hue and a finger of tan head. Almost no lacing.

Creamy, bourbon-forward aroma with vanilla and hints of berry. A touch of wood and earthy bitterness as well.

Vanilla, bourbon and honey up front in the taste with a little hop bitterness and chocolate to balance out that initial impression. Then very strong, intensely sweet marionberry on the backend.

Slick feel with good carbonation.

This is a really good dessert beer. It's nuts, but the modest bitterness in the front half prevents the big dessert beer sweetness in the second half from being too nuts.
