Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel, bourbon, vanilla, charred oak, notes of milk chocolate, figs and notes of nuts and licorice. Taste is sweet, malty, slight boozy and some roasted bitter notes. Finish is sweet caramel, figs, vanilla, some bitter roasted notes, slight woody sharpness and warming bourbon. Medium to full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation.
Nice, a bit hot with a slight sharp finish.
Bottle share @ DLD 2016. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head. Flavor and aroma of oak barrel, slight vanilla, molasses, toffee, dried fruit, and bourbon. 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. donandres (528) - Bayombong, PHILIPPINES - MAR 8, 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.
