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!

As soon as I open the cap, I smell the bourbon. It is jet black with a dark mocha head that dies down and rims the glass. You smell is standard: bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, some roasted malt. However, each scent stands out which makes this beer unique. The taste is similar to the nose. A little bit of burn from the alcohol, but not too bad. I'm sure with age this balances out nicely.
