750 ml brown bottle, sealed with burgundy wax. Bottle # 110 of 246. Kind of appropriate, huh? Poured out a deep chocolate brown, with a sticky tan head. Aromas are of rum soaked raisins, alcohol, molasses, some bittersweet chocolate. Flavors are of alcoholic rum soaked raisins, bittersweet chocolate, slight yeasty bite, some biscuit malt. Oak barrel in the background, definite hint of bourbon in the tastes. Full, rich mouthfeel, almost chewy. Definitely a top notch brew. Thanks to Wayne & the crew at CCB for sending me this special brew.

Notes from 4/26/2014. Typical bourbon barrel (brown sugar, vanilla, oak) with some smoked malts, caramel, and toast. I also got some leather (? Canít read my writing). Anyway, I ticked it 4 stars on the day, my notes add up to 4.1. So not too far off.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2012
750ml, green waxed bottle, 2011 release. poured into a CCB snifter, this lovely beer rests with a deep hazelnut color with hints of rust around the edges topped by a thin khaki head that leaves sticky rings of lace. aroma is fantastic with rich notes of vanilla, toasted oak, coconut cream pie, and warming bourbon backed by candied raisins, dried figs, black cherries, and raw brown sugar with hints of maple and herbal hops as it warms. flavor is absolutely wonderful as well with rich dark fruit notes of black cherry, fig, raisins, and tart plum skins all glazed with sweet toffee and backed by mild vanilla, bourbon drenched oak, and toasted brown sugar with hints of tobacco and earthy hops on the back end. palate is rich and full bodied with smooth carbonation and a lingering, toasty bourbon finish. overall, another great barrel aged beer from CCB.
