4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 November 16, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Muddy brown pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was an amazing bourbon and caramel sweetness. Taste starts with the caramel, moves into dark fruit, then the wood and the delicious bourbon finish. Love me some GI and this did not disappoint, plus as I was drinking this got a ticket to GI Black Friday so I am super excited!!!!!
January 19, 2013 - shared a bottle with BVery. Wow this is amazing. Bumped my taste to a 10 to get to 4.8 overall.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber, brassy looking - very dark actually with a soft ringed head. Big boozy, stern log of . Firm and passes the ABV very smoothly. Spicy, sherry, lean and peppery brass times. Preys on the maltiness, soft bourbon sweetness. Carbonation is lean, mouthfeel is long and driven by this coconut sweetness. Finishes scoops of rasins and brulee. Lingers sweet spiciness. Really dessert winey/sherry good times.

Bottle. Thanks Couch! Awesome aroma. Raisins, toffee, chocolate, cherries, figs, and vanilla. Tastes moderately sweet. Very light oxidation. Loads of dark fruit and smooth bourbon. Rich and delicious. Seems to have held up pretty well.

Smell is bourbon, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is the same with the addition of chocolate. Nice texture, but has some mild alcohol taste and warmth.

Bomber from 2011. Pours black with a bit of tan foam. Amazing nose of caramel and vanilla and bourbon and cocoa. Same flavor follow though on the palate with a very creamy mouthfeel. Excellent brew that shouldn't be passed up.
