Bottle poured into tulip glass, wow! Fantastic beer! The nose is glorious! Caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, dough...great! Mouthfeel is perfect, not too oily, not too thick, not too thin...just right! Taste is rich, smooth, a slight alcohol burn, certainly a sipper. Fantastic beer!

Bottle from Jason + Elizabeth, bottle share May 2013. Pours opaque, very dark/brown. Nose is bourbon forward, with raisins, spice and maybe cookie dough as well. Rich, sweet and boozy. Maybe cinnamon and cloves? Body is rich and strong, too, finishes sweet and boozy with more dried fruit, lots of complexity. A real winner, can definitely see why the ratings are what they are.
