22 oz bomber thanks to Reino. Poured into a shaped pint. 2007 vintage.

A: Pours a very nice dark caramel color, this sweety is hazy, can't see all the way through it. Got about a finger of head, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in retention. Lacing is a bit thin but always comes back with every pull from the glass. Carbonation bubbles are small and plenty.

S: Dark caramel that is slightly burnt. Malt that is sweet. Cracked pepper, citrus and/or floral hops, and booze. The booze smells more like a bourbon type alcohol rather than just alcohol. Very nice.

T: Nice thick malt up front. The caramel sweetness is nice but not at all overbearing. Slight citrus flavors mingle in this profile. Spices kick in on the back side. Nice amount of flavor and many other rich, dark spices. Alcohol kicks in also on the back side. Not too overpowering.

M: This is a creamy, medium bodied brew. Carbonation is light. Really sticky. Coats palate, tongue and throat. Slight alcohol burn. Mostly spices linger in the aftertaste with some spiciness. Damn nice.

D: So the ABV is high, but this is still highly drinkable. I want more and I want it now. This stacks up very well with AB and OAB. Better than AB, not as good as OAB (but little is).Very good.

Serving type: bottle
