bottle from 2012. Medium body, lighter than expected. With all the barrel aged beers around right now, this beer still stood out. Not overly boozy with a nice caramel oak flavor. Not much head. Would definitely try again.

2012 version. After wanting to try this for several years I was greatly disappointed. Very little barrel. It's decent enough but certainly not worth waiting in line and paying $20 a bottle for.

Shocker, it smells like chocolate. Bitter dark chocolate, dark fruits and subtle barrel flavor. Getting mostly oak dryness. Wish there was a bit thicker and had more barrel presence. Oh well. It's still pretty good.

Great bourbon smell. Smooth bourbon flavor. Plenty of chocolate too. Yummy, first beer of the year!
