3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spring 2013 bottle @ home, via my rot box. Pours a murky reddish brown appearance with a medium sized brown head. The aroma has mild whiskey, caramel, chocolate covered bananas, pears, apples, vanilla, oak, and some booze. Body is a little thin. A little bit of tartness which is a little weird. Mild booze, lots of fruit (pear, berry, apple), caramel, and tiramisu in the flavor. Pretty unique with a lot of fruit but all too thin. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Very deep velvety red color, almost purple. Smell is based around bourbon with some tartness from dark fruit catching for me. Taste is crisp with cherry and grape notes. Feel is pretty smooth with light carbonation and a noticeable alcohol heat on the finish. Overall solid quad. Flavor improves as the beer warms.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with garnet highlights and a shallow, off-white, creamy fine-grained head. Nose is vanilla, caramel, bourbon, toffee, chocolate, and fig -- incredibly appetizing if you’re into the sweet stuff. Smooth and sweet on the palate; there’s more fruit (I definitely get the black cherry), toffee, vanilla, and a decent amount of bourbon booziness. It’s not too heavy, but it’s definitely got some heft to it. Finish is a little hot; I also just want more body on the mouthfeel, it’s a little thin. That said, it’s pretty damned good.
