Reviewing 2014 vintage in early 2015. Tasted alongside 2010-2013 for a full vertical.

Appearance: pours a deep walnut color. small tan head with weak retention and no lacing. small brown viscosity as it swirls around the glass. dark and completely opaque.

Smell: coffee, slightly towards the stale end of the spectrum. chocolate, dark fruits and bourbon.

Taste: opens up with coffee, has a hint of fresh coffee to it before become stale and old. bourbon and a bit of booze come in. the back end is weak but has notes of dark fruits and chocolate.

Mouthfeel: heavy and viscous. some alcohol warmth. some coffee bitterness.

Overall: the freshest one is easily the best of the bunch as I expected. that said I'm not to impressed with it. the coffee already tastes slightly stale and only gets worse with ages. the coffee takes away the complexity of dark fruits and sweet malts that stand out in the standard version.

Buddy of mine opened a 2011 bottle. Unfortunately the coffee fell off and as a result it was pretty boozy. I wouldn't age this one guys...
