4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes: Poured deep nutty brown, with a slight haze and a small, thin light tan head. Woody aroma with notes of butter and leather. Body is full and slightly oily. Light boozy astringency in the finish that would likely mellow further with aging. Flavor is woody with notes of leather and buttery toffee. Mild booziness at the back and a note of stone fruit that shows underneath as it warms.

Bottle poured into snifter. Pours a dark caramel brown with a pencil thin khaki head that dissipates into an outer ring. No lacing. Aroma is molasses, caramel, vanilla, and a boozy sweetness. Flavor is all of those smells in a beautiful palate that is complex and delicious. This is a unique and great beer and I may cellar one.

Flavour is sweet, full of the different oak influences and incredibly complex. Dark fruits, oak, booze. This gets better with every sip. The complexity of this beer is incredible. It has fruityness, oak and bourbon with some brandy influences. Awesome brew! Wow!
