750 mL bottle poured and shared by Tcon. Huge thanks for sharing this one, with a nice touch of about a year of age on the bottle. I can only imagine it made this incredible beer even more enjoyable. Pours a dark muddy brown color with a thin ring head. What a fun blend this is. Heavy raisin, toffee, oak, and spice aroma. Flavor has some vanilla, wood, toffee, and chocolate. So much going on here. Very complex, which is no surprise, considering it’s a blend of three beers that are plenty complex on there own. Has a bit of a lingering bourbon finish. Slightly cool, and boozy, though not off putting. I can’t say that I absolutely love the flavor entirely, I am easily able to admire it. Overall, this was a fun beer to finally try. Very much a big league beer, and is an ass kicker, but enjoyable to say the least.

2011 bottle from a trade a long time ago over my birthday weekend May, 2015. Dark reddish brown. Nose of sweet vanilla, bourbon, light baking spices. Rich toffee, some dark dried fruit, light milk chocolate, and a lot of cinnamon and barrel spice as it warmed. Had it with s’mores and it held up quite well, even got spicier. Really good, but a sweet and hot and probably on it’s way out.
