4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2011 bottle drank Sep 2013. One of the bottles that started my cellar. Pours nearly black with just a little coming through brown. No head and but some legs. The aroma so big, rich, and many dimensioned. It lingers in your nose with bourbon, soy, some nuts and chocolate. The flavor is intense, deep, and evolves from rich sweet boozy chocolate with lots of soy and syrupy middle and bitter cocoa and roasty end. The feel is sticky syrup thinned by booze. It’s very warming, almost hot. Just wow. This is one my favorite beers in a while. Hits on everything I want from a big old bourbon barrel aged stout. It’s a stout right I’m gonna call it one cuz it basically is. Drank next to an Old Viscosity of the same age is interesting. I drank most of the Old first and found it not to have aged much in comparison. The Older is more still, more hot, much more soy and umami, and has even more dimension. Love it.

Well I’ll be honest, I expected more. More bourbon. More heaven. More balance. Not bad by any means, but this caliber of beer was left too low.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with rapidly settling brown head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is strong bourbon, slightly sharp, vanilla, boozy, bourbon sweet with a mild roast, chocolate finish. Quite sweet, fruity undertones, slight char aftertaste. Moderate carbonation, medium to full body, and smooth texture. Seems a little thin and watery. A sweet bourbon beer. Again a solid offering, though it isn’t a rich or full as Uncle Jacob’s. Solid but not really worth the price.

Pours black with no head. Smells of coffee, alcohol, slight sweetness and roasted malts. Tastes of alcohol, coffee, little licorice, and a little oak. Smooth and warm going down. Delicious.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with a minimal mocha head. Swirling it leaves small lacerations in the glass. Aroma is raisins, plum, caramel, dates, figs, vanilla, slight notes of tobacco, leather and smoke. Could sniff this all day long. Taste is caramel, honey, raisins, dates, figs with hints of vanilla, tar, tobacco, bourbon. Aftertaste is dried fruits, smoke and hints of black peppercorn along with some slight warming alcohol. Just magnificent!!

Det här var gott, riktigt gott. Smaken var oerhört kraftfull med mycket smak av choklad, sherry och sherry. Kroppen var stabilare än stonhenge och balansen var jämnare än Richard Gere’s slätrakade kind.

Pours thick black with a mocha head. Smells of big booze, vanilla, chocolate and sweet chocolate and dark fruit. Taste is boozy, chocolate, rich sweet malts, vanilla and oak. Thick full flavor and thick like motor oil. Very good bourbon barrel aged beer!
