2009 bottle thanks to Tom-thanks for this one!! Dead black. Thick and chewy. A bit sweet so a small taster/glass is good with this one. I remember having this at GABF when it first came out-nice to have it again.

Bottle at AZ Crew’s driveway tasting. Not sure which vintage but needless to stay this maybe one of the many reasons I ended up plastered this evening. Pours jet black with one finger beige head. Huge nose of brown sugar, molasses, and malt. Tastes of fudge, toffee, dark fruits, molasses, leather, chocolate, and boozy finish. quite sweet but a lovely dessert beer to be shared

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ S&B#2 - 2012 batch. Pours very dark brown with a lacing and partly lasting frothy tan small head. Aroma is heavy malty with dark roasted malts, cocoa, bourbon, caramel, mint, dark chocolate, vinous, milk chocolate, prune, dark malt, coconut, dark syrup, oak and alcohol. Taste is heavy+ sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium+, texture is viscous and syrupy, carbonation is soft. Finishes heavy sweet with chocolate and burning alcohol. This beer might as well have it’s own style - perhaps something like an American Steroid Bourbon Strong Ale. An intense and refined experience also fairly drinkable despite the ABV.
