Shared by a couple new beer buddies for Dan's birthday. Thanks to Mike for bringing this one out. Glad to finally be able to review this beer. Poured into a Hunahpu's snifter and shared with 2 other people
A - Viscous thick beer that pours dark as night leaving little to no head. Didn't expect there to be much but this one coats the glass a good bit
S - Smell is strong notes of bourbon followed by chocolate vanilla oaky hints that meld together. The dominate nose here is the bourbon.
T - Taste follows the nose except the bourbon is not as dominate. The smells have blended together into flavors where there is no one dominate taste. 3 and a half years and a properly cellared rare has made this into a fantastic taste. Chocolate bourbon coffee with hints of Vanilla and an oaky after taste. Not too much heat, at least compared to the Remy's Pappy we opened before
M - Mouthfeel was spot on for a beer this old, not too thin and not too thick. Still pretty full bodied with very minimal carbonation.
O -No oxidation here. It makes me want to seek one out now. Thanks again Mike. Happy that I am able to tick this.

Bottle date 11/19/10; bottle number 391.
A: Jet black color. Almost no head; minimal dark brown that quickly fades.
S: Bourbon, coffee and chocolate aromas.
T: malty-chocolate, bourbon, cherry and coffee blend together seamlessly. Oak noe on the tail.
M: Dense with no carbonation, yet smooth and w/ barely a touch of ETOH.
O: Spectacular beer and experience w/ some good friends. Worth every bit of its acclaim.
