One of my favorite beers, Tried a '10 and '11 back to back and gotta say that the aging process definitely helps a lot more of the flavors come out beyond the bourbon.

While bourbon is definitely one of my favorite additives to beers these days, it is nice to not have it overpower the beer. With the '10 there were a lot more vanilla notes that came through than with the '11 but that might have just been the aging process taking effect.
