House full of family, Ryan and I are enjoying sharing beers on this festive day. Small head, dissipated pretty quick. Tall boy can so we both get a good taste of this one. All while watching the kids with a Saran wrap ball. Hilarious! Bourbon aroma, maple, and some coffee. Once in the mouth it's a shot of bourbon. Very strong, intense. Immediately get a burn. A semisweet dark chocolate and coffee simultaneously arrive. All the flavors are powerful. Burns the throat and puts a chill down the arms. The finish continues with no let up. No relief. Might as well take another sip and enjoy the ride. As it warms, the coffee and chocolate seem to surface stronger, probably as I acclimate to the bourbon. Wow, two excellent beers in a row.
