4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Had this last year and remembered loving it. Poured into a snifter..
A: Oaky. Boozy. Molasis note. yes..... not bad but not very complex.
A: Pours decently thick especially watching the bubbles rise. Little head. Nice semi transparent brown color.
T: First thought is something like oh my god this is amazing. As the beer finishes the thought continues only more so. If ever a beer was a 10 in taste this is it. Molasses sweetness. Dates. Alcohol cuts through but is more warming and surprising that aggressive. Oaky. Boozy. Finish has a huge bit of malt which is crazy for a beer this strong. Goes down with almost a brandy-like warmth. Just insane. yeah there’s some carmel in there as well when the beer warms.
P: Feels smooth on the palate. Carbonation is on the money. Flavor development is also amazing. Goes through many different stages. As mentioned before the alcohol cuts though but not in a bad way, more to remind you that it’s there.
This beer is simply amazing. The tastes is complex, the palate is great. The weird thing is it doesn’t smell that great. Oak and boozy are really the big smell notes. But this one hits where it counts: a must try. (How can it be an overall 20 when the smell is a 7? IDK the sum of the parts is less than the whole?)

Piana drobna trwała, zdobi szkło. Kolor ciemny bursztyn wpadający w czerwień. Aromat piwo od razu atakuje olbrzymia wanilią, beczką, płatkami kokosowymi, na dalszym planie lekka słodycz, karmel. Aromat powala mega przyjemny. Smak, jest bogato, nuty z beczki, wanilia, kokos,( mało typowej dębiny i tanin ale wyczuwalne) jest karmel, melanoidyny. Dość słodko, lekko miodowo, alkohol z początku wyczuwalny, po 2 łykach znika a jest jego aż 11.6%, goryczka zaznaczona pasuje, nagazowanie średnie zauważalne. Piwo skończone, złożone, bardzo dobrze się pije jestem zaskoczony, nie spodziewałem się tak genialnego piwa. Oczywiście dostaje moje WOW. ANZUShophunter (450) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2017

Bottle, 355mL. Home. A sparkling beautiful dark brown mahogany beer with a big oily-look beige head ; medium retention ; ok lacing. Bourbon woody nose, bourbon, caramel, prune, roast, black chocolate. Medium round sweet, warming, light dry fresh bitter. Good body, elegant, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, sweet bourbon chocolate dry caramel finish. Overall, delicious :) Caramel character is usually not my favorite thing but the whole aromatic landscape is really good balanced.

Bottle from Purvis at Brian’s house. Pours cloudy dark brown with red tinge thin cream head. Big aroma of vanilla oak, sweet caramel and dark cherries.
