look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip. Vintage 2010 obviously. Cellar temp.

Appearance- Black with one finger of sticky bubbly mocha head that lasted about a minute and left some nice lacing.

Smell- Strong presence. Don't even need to lift it to my nose to smell it and I have a cold while writing this. Sweet bourbon and cherry, caramel malts, oak, vanilla, light cocoa. Reminds me of Adam.

Taste- Ok the hops are still there. I imagine they were real aggressive when fresh. Light vanilla, coffee, oak, muted earthy hops. No booze taste, but heat is there. The hops really linger.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, moderate carbonation, medium booze heat, and hop lingering dryness at the finish.

Overall- Was this beer fantastic three years ago? I bet it was. Is it past it's prime now? Maybe. Not a bad beer, but I imagine it was far superior fresh. The hops that remain are quite astounding actually. A unique beer that people should try if they can find one.
