Chaotic Chemistry

Many thanks go out to Brad007 for the chance to try this one. The 32oz mini- growler is a great presentation. The first time I’ve seen it but I like the idea very much.
Dirty brown, cloudy pour with a really good, ivory colored head. The lace (or rather lack of it) is a little disappointing but given the ABV I shouldn’t be too upset!
The nose is obviously VERY strong – it is certainly bourbon based, but closer inspection with the nostrils reveals some very serious brown sugar and molasses in the aroma. Either way it makes it half way across the room!
Tastes unsurprisingly reflect the nose with extra sherry emphasis thrown in with the bourbon. Alcohol is there in the taste but is does NOT burn, and to be honest it is very well hidden.
This is an extraordinary beer because of the way it drinks. Considering the style, the bourbon and the ABV I was expecting this to be a real effort to get down, but in the end it was exactly the opoosite. Drinkability for the style and considering the vital statistics for the beer, is HUGE.
Pretty amazing that a beer in this style and of this size seems so easy to put away.
Massive brew but Magic hat pulls it off amazingly well – great stuff! I wouldn’t want it every day, but as a treat from time to time, delicious!
