Had on tap at Local Option. Served in a snifter. Had next to CW15.

A: Pours a dark black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves no lace down the glass. Just some oily legs.

S: A whole lot of barrel in this guy. Some marshmallow with caramel sweetness and oak. Roasted malts with some bourbon sweetness and light chocolate.

T: Even more barrel presence. A lot of woody oak, bourbon and vanilla with some milky chocolate and roasted malts.

M: Very thin with a medium low carbonation. Smooth and sweet finish.

O: A little to thin for my liking and the barrel took over the base beer. Still a nice beer overall.

I had this side by side with Fifteen. Poured from the bomber into a goblet.

The beer pours a mahogany color with a layer of tan head. The smell of this one is a bit hot with some dark fruit and bourbon, but it's not as rich as the Fifteen. The taste is not overly sweet but it has nice notes of vanilla, bourbon, dark fruit, and perhaps some cherry. The finish is slightly bitter. I was surprised how hot this beer was considering the age. The body is just on the thin side with aggressive carbonation and a dry finish.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit but I liked the Fifteen more. The main difference is the smell.
