Had this beer many times, so I figured it's probably time to review it since it's one of my all-time favorites. This is the 2012 version. Super thick, jet black pour with one finger caramel colored head that fades pretty quick but with excellent lacing. The nose is simply amazing! One of the greatest smelling beers of all times. Dominated by the bourbon, but not far behind are the roasty coffee, chocolate, and oak along with hints of vanilla and booze. The taste is just as stellar. Perfectly balanced with the bourbon, coffee, oak, and chocolate once again the stars. Hints of toffee, vanilla, and dark fruit round it out nicely. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy and smooth as silk with a wonderful subtle, warming alcohol burn on the finish. The influence from the barrels is absolutely amazing. Huge woody character much like I get when drinking a good oak aged wine. Overall, this is as close to perfection as you can get for the style. And it's consistently spot on every year. Truly world class from the best brewery in the world!
