2012 vintage. "Bottled 121712." Been aging in my cellar for the past year and a half. Have another there I'm saving for maybe in a year or two.

Wow. That's a lot of beer. Huge malty sweet flavor bomb. Notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Chocolate, caramel , molasses , brown sugar , vanilla ice cream. Lots of rich leathery sweet flavor profiles and some reduced balsamic. Flavor finishes long and tangy with bourbon and toasted oak along with a rich dark earthy muddiness. Almost compost flavored, but more like black nutrient rich soil.

Finish is syrupy and sweet and coats the mouth. A tingly carbonic/graphite crispness tries to cover the syrupy finish, but it can't hold up to it.

Smell is big sweet and syrupy again. Bonilla and brown sugar again. Viscosity is out of this world. Ridiculously thick.

Overall, this is an amazing beer. Though, it looses points in my mind for the texture. It's too viscous for me, though I understand developing this sort of flavor profile has its drawbacks. I can't imagine how much grain went into making this!
