Traded 4 pack of Heady Topper for a 2013 bottle that sadly has been standard cold-refrigerated. Since I have 2 aging (set to drink in 2018/9) already, I figured I might as well give this a shot now and see what the story is.

12 oz. bottle poured into Utopias glass. Date on bottle is 10/2013.

A) Dark, dark brownish-black. No head to speak of. Very tiny tan foam rim.

S) Sweet, sweet malt, bourbon, and alcohol. Can't mask it at this ABV.

T) Coffee, bourbon, vanilla, a bit of dark dried fruit. Some alcohol.

M) Very full-bodied and syrupy. Not much carbonation at all, not sure if it's this bottle or could use more in general. Pretty good balance. Sweet finish, not what you would expect from moderate hopping and big ABV. Quite good.

O) It's great, but didn't blow me away as advertised. Hopefully aging will add more.
