2011 bomber poured into Delirium snifter on 11/18/11.

A: Nice clear honey colored body with quickly fading white head.

N: Oak and vanilla bourbon are the primary scents.

T/M: This beer has an incredible flavor while cool. The bourbon really dominates the flavors, with a wonderfully strong vanilla and booze note. The alcohol is incredibly warm. The beer really does lack a middle, however, with a very weak body. The mouthfeel is a little light considering the style and richness of the booze, which is really most noticed by the lack of malt.

Really not a bad beer, but it does seem to miss the mark with regard to the middle--the beer could use a stronger grain presence. I really do enjoy the intense bourbon flavors though, so this some what makes up for the lack of body.
