3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. 2010 vintage it seems, but the wax was more copper than gold, so maybe 2012? A black one, more or less, clear looking and topped by a dense, beige head. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee and a touch of vanilla. A little bit of vanilla on the palate, with roasted malts, something boozy, dark chocolate and a little bit of coffee. Full body, soft on the palate. Lasting chocolatey finish. I guess Mr Churchill couldíve had some fine hours with this one. 120818

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle of the 2012 courtesy of HopHead84. Thanks! Took a nice full pour of this since I brought it to a tasting.
A: Pitch black with a quarter inch mocha head. Slides off the glass.
N: Lots and lots of fudge. A little bit of prune. Caramel, vanilla, plenty of well integrated bourbon.
T: Sugar, bourbon, chocolate. Plenty of ground coffee. Alcohol is evident but it doesnít detract. Some sweet cherry and molasses.
M: Coating and decently thick.
O: Really glad to try this. Big and round and sweeping. A full snifter is more than enough, so I was glad to share with some BAís.

Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted, cherry, vanilla, licorice and woddy bourbon alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted malt and cherry flavor with a heavy dark fruit sweet and alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. This is a standout complex beer.
