StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle. Black with a medium khaki colored head that has fair retention. The aroma is big and bold with wood, a trace of spice, raisins, dates, plums and all manner of complex dark fruit. The taste is also wonderfully complex and features more dark fruit, cola, some whiskey, vanilla, oak, toffee, and dark fruits. The palate is full, smooth, a trace oily and very viscous. Finishes long and sweet. Overall: One of the best beers I’ve had in a long time. At $13.00 a bottle it is also a fair value for a big beer. This to me tastes like what Westy 12 would taste like if you aged it a bourbon barrel.

stevoj (5271) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Saturday night bottle share. Can courtesy of Syndicate. As if Abominable wasn’t good enough, along come the BA variant. Extra smooth texture, hints of bourbon flash through the rich stout base. Nice well rounded brew made better with some bourbon barrel ageing.
