As a finished beer, 14 is brimming with amazing flavors and textures. DDBA leads the blend lending American toasted oak, English caramel toffee and light leather nuances. Newcomer, Sticky Monkey, folds in the taste of brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon, ginger and ripe figs. Parabola brings the familiar flavors of bitter dark chocolate and cherry pit. Velvet Merkin carries silky bourbon soaked chocolate cake goodness to the party while a touch of Black Xantus teases coffee and tobacco. Last, but not least, Good Foot brings the hops... hints of citrus zest and tangerine, which adds a pop to the aroma and nice finish to this big, sexy brew. 14 is best enjoyed in a half filled brandy snifter or wine glass. Allow it to warm to 55F to fully enjoy the pleasing and complex aromas. If left in a cool dark place, I suspect this beer will age well. It was an absolute pleasure making it and I truly hope you enjoy our fifth oak–aged blend! The journey continues.

fiulijn (18780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt, bb 2013-10 (Braufactum importer’s label)
The color is very dark, almost black, with beige compact head. Aroma of Bourbon vanilla and roasted malts, followed by cake, butter and hits of hops. It’s full bodied, with luscious malt flavor, caramel, roasted malt, prominent oak, a trace of liquorice; it’s quite sweet. Strong bitterness, expected; the alcohol is a bit too evident.
Very good but unelegant, just the sum of a lot of everything.
