flat purple pour . raisin juice aroma hit me hard. but i like pain. this was the 05 vintage, i can only imagine how hot this was at one time. surprisingly drinkable. the bourbon was definitive, i knew it had to be aged in something, and seeing wild turkey now makes sense. strong booze and plum notes with a lot of ancillary flavors. pepper, banana, bubble gum, finishes with a lingering grapeskin and vanilla bourbon. after a glass my mood was improved tremendously. just the thing to have after working a bad shift on a scheduled day off.

Boulder Strong Ale Fest 2007. Head is fully diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), with notes of bourbon, vanilla, alcohol, wood, cardboard, and maple syrup. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. The alcohol burn provides the bulk of the balance for the sweetness, and somehow it works. The aroma is complicated and mostly attractive, but tainted a bit by the oxidation. A pretty neat beer that has potential.

Crushed at BSAF 10. Pretty sweet brew. Very fruity with some vanilla and other whiskey notes. More sweet than anything, but pretty solid.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 icky, sticky, oily and sweet. it’s in the vein of angels share and actually quite good... dumb luck or skill? heavy sweetness up front resembles port or port reduction... sweetened, candied plums and dates and other natural sugars give it some authenticity. bourbon character is sweet plum/brandy/dates with the sugar overpowering any wood character that could otherwise be noticed. it’s a big one and doesn’t hide it’s booze at all, but in small doses and as a dessert beer it’s quite good.

Pours an opaque muddled brown with an yellow tinted off-white head. Nose is a bit extreme: big fusel alcohol, bourbon, sweetness. Flavor is very sweet and boozy. Thick, thick palate but I really didn’t want to drink much of this.
