UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Bottle from Proof. Poured into a snifter. Pitch black and opaque. Deep brown head with same collar. Decent legs, and head was thick and yummy. Aroma is of sweet/dark cherries, dark chocolate, vanilla, a smooth/woody bourbon. Taste is wonderful. Exact same as smell. Mouthfeel is viscous, fully coats my mouth, and is exactly what I want. Super fantastic beer. Dessert in a glass! maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2013
Paul. You are a fucking legend. Goddamn this beer is luxurious. Quite sweet but I like it. Velvet smooth milk chocolate on the nose followers by a light spice - good dose of peppers in there. Almost Black Forest cake like with heavy cream notes and black cherries. So much going on. Bourbon is always in check. Absolutely perfect stuff. Sweet vanilla beans and milk chocolate coated cherries, light chilli, smooth cream, custard like, white chocolate covered raisins, red cherry. Light tart behind the overwhelming vanilla and spice. Bourbon is superbly balanced. It has bitterness and sweetness all rolled into an unbelievably big but balanced beer. One of the best beers I’ve ever had. Absolutely perfect Beer_nerd305 (4) - Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014 does not count
This was absolutely delicious. It had a sweet cherry smell that calmed the usually strong smell of barrel. Dark in color with a red tinge towards the edges. It was sweet and heavy and delicious. It was full bodied with a thick consistency. The head was a dark brown color. This beer was extravagant. Had it to celebrate a team victory and it was well worth it!!
