650ml 2012 bomber poured into tulip 17/12/13, thanks OakedCanuck for the long time want
A reddish brown that I can just barely see through when I hold it to the light, fast falling three fingers of noisy tan foam leaves no lace but that's to be expected at this strength, some wide legs and a few streams of tiny bubbles going up the side make it look like a slow boiling pot of oil
S lots of brown sugar, some anise, wood, bourbon, vanilla, toffee and caramel, some booze and I get some sawdust of all things, some sugar coated raisins burnt marshmallow, and spiced rum
T more boozy bourbon, lots of toffee, some fruity notes, a little coco, leather, plenty of booze and wood, everything I smells still there but with some welcome additions
M not as thick as expected but quite syrupy and sticky, lots of heat and a little tannin, has enough bubbles to give it some life but it stops short of creamy
O booze is noticeable throughout but that's my only complaint, everything else is working well for this one but I wouldn't put it as high as it is on the top 250 list
I'd love to revisit this one a few years down the road, shes a big ass boozy sipper and If I had a second bottle I'd sit on it for ages. Its a great beer don't me wrong I just don't think its built to be drank fresh, and by fresh I mean a little over a year old.

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.
