12 oz single at Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY, USA. $1.70.
Initially a nice head with the aggressive pour, but of course this is quickly lost to absolutely nothing because of the ABV. Good legs come with the alcohol.
Color is a beautiful, roasted tawny, deep color. Massive alcohol sherry notes in the nose – delicious.
Tastes are obviously huge alcoholic caramalized malts and not much else. Having said that it is very drinkable and easy to consume despite the fact that sipping at the end of the evening is the best way to enjoy this baby. Considering the style and the ABV, this is extraordinarily drinkable.
Quite dry in the finish, and it lacks the burning warmth that some of these types can deliver. Drier and less challenging in the alcohol department that some.
