Gift from S.J.. Caramel, oak, vanilla = winning combination.
The finish was bourbon, and dark chocolate and earth.
Strong Ales are becoming one of my favorite styles. Thanks SJ.

Black pour from bottle at midway airport. Tan head. Oily and sweet aroma. Sweet and white chocolate taste to it. Pretty good. Unusual. Hides the ABV well

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ótima American Strong Ale envelhecida em barris de Bourbon. Cor vermelho-escura, com espuma toffee de media formacao, desprendendo aroma de cafe, whisky e caramelo. Na boca, dulçor característico do malte envelhecido, lembrando um bom bourbon, ainda com notas de cafe e chocolate, com amargor lupulado no final. Final prolongado, alcoólico. Excelente breja!

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: Cherokee Market Beer & Wine in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $9.99 for a 4-pack
Purchased: May 11, 2013
Consumed:May 11, 2013
Poured an almost pitch black color with two fingers of pillowy tan head. Not as much lacing as I’d thought there would be, average with sporadic spots. Very nice retention of tan foam all the way down.
Smelled chocolate, toffee, caramel, oak, chocolate milk, faint coffee and bourbon. Very malty.
Tasted similar to the nose, just so smooth. Got toffee, caramel, tobacco, oak, chocolate, bourbon, chocolate milk, vanilla and faint coffee beans. Touch of bitterness, but smooth.
Medium-to-full body. Slick texture. Average carbonation. Long, warming, smooth finish with just a tad bit of bitterness.
A very good beer and I think a great price at $2.50 a bottle. Would love to try it again.

Very nice looking beer. Dark pour with slight tan head. Slight bourbon smell with chocolate too. Very gentle bourbon taste for a decent beer.

Bottle pour into tulip. Deep brown with tiny tan head. Aroma is dominated by sweet chocolate malt, very pleasant. Flavor is a bit hollow, a bit of chocolate malt and not a hell of a lot else. Surprisingly thin body, medium carb. Better than I expected.

sweet tar like molases aroma, wet grass as well. Thick very dark
brown color with beige head. No opacity. Looks thicker than mouthfeel which is medium and fools you when you . Refreshingly light. Entry is light, as is the get, the medium portion is where the flavor is. Toffee, chocolate, dark cherry, slight smoke flavors. Don’t notice much hops at all, but not too sweet. Smooth and again very middle flavored. Alcohol burn is not noticeable for a 9.1 abv, they hide it well.

Very interesting and unique. Deliciously complex woody coffee aroma on a surprisingly light body.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I really can’t understand the ratings on this, except if I didn’t get a big enough pour (in a brandy snifter). This was rather disgusting, actually. There’s no way I would consider it an imperial stout, as it is rather light bodied for it. The wood is barely there, and the finish is both thin and vegetal, with ugly acidity and sourness. No thank you! Bottle.

Flaska. Mörkbrun öl med litet smutsvitt skum. Vaniljen dominerar starkt i både doft och smak. Sen fyller det på med choklad och bourbon också i både smak och doft. I den förra finns också en viss citrus. Väl avvägd beska/sötma. Kolsyrig munkänsla.
