4.28/5 rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pitch black in glass which is a little surprising to me for the style. Bubbly tan head head with pretty short retention.
Solid bourbon barrel character in the nose. Caramel, notes of dark fruit and molasses. Not quite as complex as I'd hoped but nice.
Flavor is pretty big and bright with notes of dark fruit, oak, a bit of anise, caramel and molasses with a mild bitterness. Mildly sweet vanilla wafflecone-like aftertaste.
Mouth is medium-full bodied with low carb. A bit sticky.
Overall it's a very good beer but not quite as good as I had anticipated. I have traded away a few and put off the chance to try this and am finally trying it. Maybe I set my hopes a little too high? Some say it's better fresher??

4.19/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear auburn color, with 1/2" of light khaki colored head. pretty nice retention time, and ultimately reduced down to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. minimal lacing.
Smell: Rich, sticky toffee, vanilla, hints of wood, medium amount of oxidation, which does not retract too much, and is reasonable considering this is 4 years old.
Taste: Toffee, caramel, sherry, wood, vanilla, and hints of oxidation, although not as prevalent as the nose. Sweet, but not too much so especially for this style.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full mouthfeel, appropriate carbonation, sticky with residual sugars. Again, good. Overall, this probably would have been better a year ago, but still has retained much of its quality. A bit oxidized, but does not affect the beer too much overall. I have a 2011 that I will open very soon and hope it has faded a bit less than this.
