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.
