DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Poured into a snifter. 2007 vintage. Big thanks to johnbjaeger for this. 3.5 A: Black color. Aggressive pour yielded less than one finger of head in mostly large beige bubbles. Some creaminess in there and a good bit of lacing given the original head size. 4.0 S: Bourbon is dominant in this and it smells great. Leathery and woody with a good bit of oak and vanilla. Light fig and currant fruitiness with a touch of char. The problem with this is that there isn’t much of the beer itself (which isn’t going to be a problem for many of you). Very, very little booziness. There’s a decent chocolate component, but the smoke and the roastiness I was expecting are sparce. Still, as a bourbon delivery vehicle, it succeeds. 3.5 T: Taste is like the nose - bourbon with chocolate. Bourbon again is leathery and woody with a light peat and dark fruitiness. Aside from the chocolate, the porter doesn’t even show up. This isn’t surprising given how light the body is. Regardless, it’s still a tasty drink, just not one that focusses on the beer itself. 2.5 M: Light body. A bit undercarbonated (it’s not that old either). Smooth, but lacking creaminess. 3.5 D: This reminds me a lot of the 50/50 Eclipse I had. Excellent barrel aging, but the beer itself has too light of a body and fails to impress on the taste front. Whatever the case, it isn’t a bad drink, particularly if you like bourbon. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-16-2011 02:03:00
