Who's been drinking this

Truly a privilege to have had this beer. The balance, the sweet and the dry, the char and the smooth molasses. Sublime really.
Bottle at Roy’s
Like a balsamic reduction after cooking a steak. And surprisingly, as a hater of bourbon barrel aged, this was really not bad.
Bottle at Roy's place
Aged now for seven years, lots of caramel, cacao, and hints of aged balsamic grape, finishing with a nice, clean, tannic dryness. Love to open an old bottle and find that it's still superb.

Yes, we had a second bottle!
Thanks Chandler!
Thanks, Chandler! Just amazing, super complex beer. Vegetal. Umami. Toffee. Thick. Smooth. All of the single words.
