AdamChandler (3809) – Enfield, New Hampshire, USA – OCT 17, 2015
Acquired in a trade 3 years ago, split 3 ways at cellar temperature today. Small bottle for a big tin.
A – Good cap whisp. Sounds full of carbonation but pours a small head. Pitch black and thick.
S – The aroma is pretty awesome. A lot of vanilla, coconut and dark chocolate fudge. Bourbon presence is big but everything is well integrated.
T – Taste is very nice. Chocolate, fudge, some oak smoke, char taste with a faded coffee bean and maybe some raisin. There’s a lot of flavor here. Well integrated and actually slightly oxidized but it’s minimal.
M – Thick and oily, tiny carbonation bubbles
O – I’m very impressed by how well this held up. A big beer but it really did well over the last 7 years. Fantastic but I’d drink it soon if you have a bottle.
