Mark another awesome brew to be placed in the AW BHoF!! This is simply an exquisite brew! It pours up rich dark brown (nearly black) body with an intense foamy head that lingers for quite a long time and leaves some awesome lacing on the glass! Scents and flavors of bourbon, vanilla, malts, and caramel; none of which overpower the other. There’s just enough twinge from the alcohol that lets you know you’re drinking a hearty brew so don’t rush; sit back and enjoy slowly! This brew has just the right amount of thickness and smoothness that reminds me of a fine well-aged bourbon. Definitely a brew to stock up on and let the bottles age like a fine wine! I can see this being a awesome brew to enjoy during the wintry months but it’s one that can be easily enjoyed year round. medallaisla (91) - PUERTO RICO - AUG 8, 2012
On keg. 6 months old.
Dark brown pour, head dies down and leaves nice lacing.
Lots of whiskey in the nose and dried fruits.
Taste is fruitcake with definite whiskey. Nice and oaky but far from overpowering. As fits the name, the booziness warms, rather than burns.
