Thanks go out to Lance for securing this bottle for me. Took me an age to get hold of it, but eventually it got here.
22 oz bottle with the black wax. Shared this one with Wes at Cypress, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a simple, reddish hue with good clarity and a surprisingly healthy, frothy and large bubbled head.
Nose gives light brown sugar and some alcohol.
This is a VERY smooth, restrained and rounded version of the style. Usually I’m not a huge fan of the hop-based American versions of BW’s, nor am I much of a fan of any kind of oak, but this combo really melds VERY well. It’s my suspicion that over the last few months this may have evened-out some. There is a really large and continuing sugary note which makes the huge ABV and any oak notes that would be otherwise be potentially harsh, round out nicely.
Very surprised how rounded this was and how much I enjoyed it. Drinkability is very high when you consider the style.
