4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours Black, with barely a head. Aroma is crazy: bourbon, wood, smoke, malt, buttered toast, vanilla, cocoa, alcohol, banana.Taste is sweet, sour, umami, and then bitter. Finish is salty/bitter/umami. Palate is oily and slick, like a bourbon, with a very mild carbonation. I love this brewer’s sour beers, and that character is in this fucker. It’s fantastic, but i regret drinking this so soon. Should have aged it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours nearly black with no head. The nose is milk and dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, vanilla, coconut, and maple bourbon. The flavor is a bit sweet bourbon up front, but balanced out nicely by all of the coffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. The body is full with nearly no carbonation and a long sweet bourbon and bitter coffee and dark chocolate finish.

Black, no foam. Aroma if bourbon, taste of American Bourbon. Nice soft taste. I do not consider this a beer, didn’t drink it as a beer. But very, very good nevertheless. (Velp 201501)

The (11.2 oz.) bottle was purchased at Parker Pie, in West Glover by WillRunForBeer; he graciously shared this with me. Many thanks! To plastic Dixie cup (shut up), it pours an oily chestnut-tinted dark brown with which a trim off-beige head barely a fingernail in length. Aromas of flat Coke, whole cloves, European noble hops, young oak, rosemary, pipe tobacco, chocolate malt, London yeast, and mint. Tastes the same with the addition of raspberry jam, bourbon oak/bourbon vanilla, roast, and ground cinnamon. Alcohol definitely presented itself after the first sip. A bit spicy and and a bit woodsy. I did feel like I was consuming a Coke-based mixed drink after 15 minutes of nursing this gargantuan lovely, but that wasn’t enough to warrant me hating on this. It’s really fracking good.
