Someone gifted me a bottle of this years release yesterday. Couldn't take it any longer and cracked it open today. Poured like the old oil out of my Toyota. Smells like a dream. Coffee, Chocolate, Bourbon and Vanilla explosion. The coffee takes the front seat on the taste. There is just enough chocolate and bourbon there to compliment things. The alcohol kick is fabulous and changes as the beer warms. I sipped this one as long as I could.
