2012 bottle opened on 12/30/13. I've been saving this for a while. Thanks Kayn169

A: Pitch black. Very little head that dissipated rapidly.

S: Lots of coffee, roasted malts and chocolate.

T: Follows the nose pretty well. Coffee up front, roasted malt and chocolate. The bourbon is very faint, which is nice.

M: Right amount of carbonation. Medium bodied.

O: Always a treat. I had this about a year ago. Just as good as I remember. It rightfully deserves a top 10 on BA.
