Massive bourbon on the nose and initial attack, followed by a rich rum-soaked cherry and candied fruit flavor. After four years this is still a booze-forward brew which might still improve for several years.
The classic Alchemist hop profile and finish, making this another immensely enjoyable beer. Malts are supportive but not overbearing. Some good pear notes in there too. Thanks again for the hook up Gary H. and Carrie .
