Bottle #1,591, bottled on Nov. 19, 2010.

Being that this beer is so rare I was hesitant to try it, it's been aging in my cellar for 4 years now and I figured it's about time I open it up. Really impressive, a bit smoother than the original, definitely not as boozy. Has nice subtle bourbon notes, some vanilla and a little bit alcohol, a slight bit of chocolate in the finish. I wish I had bought two bottles so I could compare the early life to the aged but it definitely does not disappoint. It's up there with the BCBS Coffee, which is one of my personal favorites.
