2008 Aged Properly

A. Jet black almost 10/30 and a razor thin tan head.

S. Bourbon up front then a sweet maybe chocolate/molasses scent

M. Very thick like a milkshake, not too much but it is very creamy.

T. Bourbon breaks through the initial creamy mouth feel and then an almost chocolate sweet vanilla oak finish with the greatest tingle on your tongue. This is one of the first times I have ever tasted diff flavors on diff parts of my tongue at the same time. I know they say everyone does that but this beer was the first time I ever noticed it including food.

O. I liked the 2010 better but only because of the more upfront, in your face bourbon flavor/scent I would drink this all day any time of year though. This is still one of the best beers I have had and am so thankful for the chance to try it.

Just an update, Tried the 2010 7/10/12 and it is all 5.0 all the way across, best beer I have ever had anywhere and anytime. I love it as I will my first born child and will change the ratings to show this... Seriously 2010 is that much better right now.
