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.

Vintage 2009 bottle purchased and poured at The Porter Bar in Atlanta on 11/23/14. Pours deep dark brown with no head at all. Beautiful aroma of vanilla, caramel, lots of smooth bourbon still present, oak, toffee, marshmallow. Flavor follows with a big bourbon punch that is very mellow, sweet brown sugar and caramel, vanilla marshmallow notes, a hint of chocolate, smooth oak. Wow this is good. Chewey body with low plus carbonation, coats the mouth. This was really nice and the bottle was clearly well-kept for the past few years. Just a really nice beer.

2009 bottle. Simply amazing. Can barely tell it's bourbon barrel aged, but the taste is heavenly.
