About This Beer
The Colorado crew aged this 20.02% ABV behemoth in Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon Barrels for an entire year! That long slumber created intricate notes of woody vanilla and oak spice, while also mellowing out the boozy heat… a tad.
The strength in this brew goes straight to your cheeks, but it’s more like taking a bite of a molten lava cake drizzled in caramel and topped with melty vanilla whip. The warmth is present, just wrapped in welcoming dessert flavors.
Rich Boozy Bold
the nose is throwing me off, almost an Asian sweet sauce vibe. flavors are decent but not the chocolate lava cake described.
super boozy but amazingly smooth. abv overpowering but not
these guys have a heck of a barrel program. been loving their stuff
It starts with pomegranate and dried fruits sweetness. Then comes the barrel and oaky notes. When the sweetness and barrel fades, a dark chocolate finish stays for long. Don't be scared of 20% it's not super boozy.
solid for the 20% abv. A little too much tobacco, molasses, and date making it like a soy saucy after taste
