HonusWagner (1630) - Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Heavy caramels, fruitiness, bourbon. Drank a batch one the other day and it was still drinking pretty damn well for a beer of this type with this age. Carbonation was low and a touch of oxidation but this is definitely an A-grade BA scotch ale.

Tap@aibf14. Black, dark brown. Barrel oak, woody nose, roasted vinous nose. Full, real intensively flavoured body. Good soft dark dry plummy dadely fruityness, malts, caarmels. As said, real intensive, long finish. Probably my second best beer this weekend. Love it.

Bottle. Actually two. One old rotter, one fresh. Nose on the older is preferred. More vinous character. Taste in the newer has a bit more hop bitterness balance and even a bit of roast. Overall the most recent release is preferred. Solid.
