A - Black syrup, rocket fuel, motor oil, etc. Almost no head even when served warm and poured aggressively.

S - My only rating that may fall lower than average. I had a hard time smelling any complexity, only bourbon and a sweet raisin/chocolate smell came through. It probably doesn't help that we are making chilli and the whole house smells of it.

T - First sip let me down, but every sip after that was pretty damn good. I really like the bourbon notes and sweet aftertaste. I hope some of the additional flavors come with aging.

M - Just as thick feeling as you would expect based on the pour.

O - It's a really good beer, and I'm lucky enough to live close to the source so that I can continue to try it each year. I look forward to tasting this 2013 bottle sometime later in 2014.
