Poured from fridge temp to tulip. Dark brown with good carbonation. Smell was out of this world. Beautiful hints of caramel, vanilla, dark fruit, and bourbon. Reminded me of a world-class BA barleywine (e.g. Sucaba). Blew me away. The taste followed nicely, which was nice. Similar attributes as the nose. Feel was very nice, giving an overall stellar beer. I am extremely happy to have tried this!

From bottle during a vertical tasting with 2014 Old Stock, 2012 Otsuchi, and 2011 Brandy.

Dark brown, with the BA versions being less carbonated.

Delicious with a decent amount of bourbon notes.
