Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured dark brownish/burnt orange with a thin head. Holy cow! This was an incredible nice sipper (as would be expected). Dense with whiskey and alcohol characters, mildly tart and acidic with oak and tannins, vanilla beans, caramel, and malted grains.

Bottle. Appearance is similar to the regular version, dark amber pour/little carbonation and and aroma of strong raisins and bourbon. Flavor is creamy well blended raisins, bourbon, honey and and aftertaste of sweet booze and bourbon. Still a young hot beer, but pretty damn tasty!

Big thanks to goryshkewych for this burlap sack encased waxed 750mL which pours mahogany with a full mocha head. The aroma is smooth smelling with sweet malts, sticky malts, vanilla, oak, pine hops and booze. The aromatics come together wonderfully. Smells great. The taste delivers sweet to sludgy thick maltiness and a bit of pine hops mixing with sweet vanilla, smooth sweet bourbon and a bit of oak. Into the finish pine hop infused caramel candy comes to the surface and rides into the after taste with the rest of the flavor notes. This stuff is smooth and like the aroma comes together beautifully.
