Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Big cheers to Senior Bois for this treat. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is softish and semi dry. Rich dark malt cream and dark chocolate. Lighter coffee cream and a touch of spice. Underneath are bourbon accentuated dark fruits. Rich and sumptuous.

2013 Yellow Wax affair, acquired in a trade and shared at the HUUUUUGE Friday tasting at Bruces pad, 03/01/14. Pitch black with a well appointed dirty tan head. Nose is sweet, bitter chocolate, dark fruit tang, subtle bourbon, chocolate cake mix. Taste comprises rich decadent chocolate goo, bourbon twang but well integrated, rich dark malt, black forest gateau. Full bodied, smooth as, soft carbonation, expertly pitched mouthfeel. Top draw impy, a little too sweet at times but decent none the less.

hopscotch (9501) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 (2014 Release - Gold Wax - PVW Barrel)
Bottle... This beer still rocks!... Pours Marshal Zhukov-black with a tiny, brief head. The aroma is a swirl of fudge, bourbon, vanilla, lightly toasted coconut, chocolate crème and cinnamon. Huge-bodied and velvety with pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is rich, boozy, bittersweet and burnt. A bit too sweet, but otherwise absolutely delicious. Love this year’s treatment even more than last years. Bottle courtesy of the always-generous ctipping!

Original Rating (2013 Release - Yellow Wax - Rye Barrel) = 4.2
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pitch black pour with a small, short-lived, creamy, beige head. The nose is a decadent mélange of fudge, toasted nuts, a splash of vinous tawny port and a light rye whiskey component. Full-bodied and chewy with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet and deeply roasted with splashes of sweet port and warm rye. Nice, deeply-roasted finish with a lingering rye whiskey aftertaste. World class beer from a world class brewer (badbeer)!
