Terra Incognita, earth unknown, Boulevard/Sierra Nevada joint project, excellent.  This blended beauty is 15% ale, 30% bourbon barrel aged ale and 55% wine barrel aged ale.  9.8% ABV.  Pepsi brown with a slightly more than one layer head and slow, sliding lace.  The bouquet starts winey and malty with some of the expected bourbon and a distinct alcohol tang at the end. Very tantalizing.  Silky smooth body, creamy.  Sweetish but with a distinct sharp edge.  Sharp but not dry.  Bourbon, cherry, heavy cream and vanilla in the exhale.  Don’t drink it too cold, you don’t want to miss any of its subtleties.  Delicious, I love it!
