3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by BA Alcstradamas! Dark amber pour, medium carbonation and a nice aroma of brown sugar and raisins. Flavor was nice sweet figs, plums, a little more brown sugar/malt and a little bit of slight oxidation on the aftertaste. Decent, I wonder how this would have been fresh.

On tap in a snifter. Pours ruby/brown with a thick, lacy, tan head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel, some light chocolate, floral hops, and some vanilla/bourbon. The bourbon could be stronger, as it only comes through in the finish. Smooth, almost thick texture. A really good beer.
