look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle from 10/3/13, poured into a snifter. Thanks to Nick for throwing this in as an extra.

A: Dark amber coming out of the bottle, but nearly black in the glass. Light khaki lacing.

S: Oak, dark fruits, caramel, and booze; light vanilla; lots of barrel and alcohol.

T: Bourbon-soaked butterscotch; sweet and malty; slight bitterness from the hops; oaky and vanilla sweetness on the aftertaste.

M: Smooth and oily; coats the palate nicely.

O: Not much of a wee heavy fan, and I didn't enjoy this beer the first time I had it. But after having it on tap and again in the bottle, it's really grown on me. Smell is fantastic, and taste and mouthfeel work together for a great drinking experience.
