Oh me oh my. 22 oz bomber I have been looking forward to for quite a long time and I have the fantastic BA spointon to thank for this bottle. This is being served up in my Terrapin snifter.

A: Pours the expected and wanted dark black that has some nice weight to it. It has a thickness on the pour that is noticable and is making me happy. What it doesn't have is much of a head or a top cap. Got a really thin a wispy dark tan presence that bubbled up initially but I coulndn't aggravate any more out of it. It all fell to a really thin ring that can not do much in the lace department. The body does leave a film on the glass that is pretty thick and coating and leaves a light brown tint on the glass. Good looking brew but I was expecting a bit more in the head department.

S: Getting some decent wood presence coming out here. Nice and roasty with just a touch of vanilla. There is absolutely a heavy roast coming out in these malts. Getting some chocolate, dark and bitter. There is a hefty boozy presence here that melds with some dark fruit that kinda smells like some fruit fried up in some whiskey. Interesting for sure.

T: Nice maltiness coming out here. Lots of good, dark and bitter chocolate along with some nice roasty goodness molds well. The wood has a little bit of smoke to it, but mostly a sweet kiss of vanilla and oak. Slight dark coffee flavor coming out here. Getting some resin goodness coming from what imagine are the hops. Slight prune and raisin sweetness in here with just a touch of spice added on here. Nice boozy flavor that really is just enough to let you know its there. Further inspection yields me finding some slight cherry and brown sugar in here as well.

M: Getting a nice full bodied feel with a coating slickness. This is absolutely chewy and thick. Slow sipper for sure. ABV has some burn in here that comes up in the throat and palate and rests oh so gently in the stomach. Aftertaste is some booze along with some resin. Carbonation is light and really allows this beer to be nice and thick.

D: This beer does have some weight to it and you can really feel that in the stomach. Still its nice and great sipping brew. All around this beer is really nice and I can only imagine what the Older V has to offer here. The flavors and aromas are nice and they absolutely meld together beautifully. I could see it getting dangerous if I had these brews on my bottle shops shelves. Great brew.
