22. Thank you, alex, for hooking up a taste of this, and thank you david for this wee dram. Fuck this beer is ridiculous and then some. You other beers need to get a hold of yourselves and sack up. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Huge honey, oak, vanilla, espresso, roast, and caramel nose. All perfectly integrated, all raised to a higher power in the combination. Luscious mid palate, tartly tangled in a sweet and roasty combo. Absolutely spectacularly assembled.

Solid nose of vanilla, bourbon and caramel chocolate. Thick black pour. Fast dissipating beige head. Solid bourbon vanilla flavor with a smokey malt finish that dries the palate and lingers on the side of the tongue. The bottle I have says 8.5% abv and not 10%. This beer needs a lil more meat to its mouthfeel and flavor to balance out the whiskey aging.
