750 ml bottle (267/817) via trade with badlizard several years ago. Thanks Joe - I’ve been sittin’ on this beer for awhile. Waiting for the right occasion. I’ve thought about sharing it with my homebrew club, the AZ crew, or family. Well, I’ve decided to be selfish, and drink the crown jewel of my cellar by myself (actually my wife helped). Reason being, Elaine Schubert, my mother died this morning after she finally succumb to her battle with cancer. So why not drink a great beer to celebrate the life of a wonderful woman.

I won’t go into detail about the beer. You can read all the other reviews. With that said, this beer is absolutely wonderful. Probably one of the best beers I’ve tried. Time has done this beer good. So I think I’ve finally found a beer I can rate a 5.0. Also, I think this would be a good beer end end my rating. Love ya mom.

Bottle from someone who is awesome for trading it to me. Consumed for 34th birthday. Pours darkest brown-almost black with tan head. Nose and taste of bourbon, graham cracker, nutty malt, roast chocolate malt, caramel toffee, sherry, vanilla and oak. Full bodied. A little oxidized but solid. Held up pretty well. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
750 ml. bottle shared by AgentSteve. Thanks! It pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is toasty, nutty, chocolate, subtle barrel notes with vanilla. The flavor is just amazing. Dry, toasty, nutty with some spicy barrel notes in the mid palate finishing off with chocolate and subtle bourbon. Very complex with the typical stellar Alesmith barrel influence. This one is holding up incredibly well.
