4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle and served in my Stone IRS snifter (and yes a bottle I did NOT get from Eric Starnes) : Pours basically opaque with a small creamy tan head, oily viscous legs and some lacework. The aroma has extremely heavy vapours of dark fruits (prune, plum , black cherry, fig) with luscious rum barrel character. What I like is I still get lots of the base beer character of milk chocolate, roast, char, tobacco, leather, tar and herbal hops. The taste is not quite the level of the nose with the heavy fruit, earthiness and barrel fighting off some oncoming sour’d twang. Sweet but never cloy, boozy but never over the top, woody but not tannic. Mikey Likey this a lot... Hopscotch why didn’t I get this from you ;-)

Bomber bottle shared by a friend. Bottled in 2011. I hope this one hasn’t lost his pride yet. Poured a dark Black colour with a tanned ring on top. Nose of dark rum soaked raisins, earth tones, fainted cinamon, burned caramel, and some sweet bakers chocolate, some dark fruit notice, cherries, oak, and sweet rum, some sweet figs in the aftertaste combined with fudge and spices. I have no idea how this should have tasted fresh. But this one is still tasting Great! Cellared very well these last 4 years. The suprise of the evening
