750ml bottle with the olive green wax. Poured into a mini snifter 8/9/2014.

A- Dark black body, opaque with a nice thick brown head that lasts for quite a while. Looks like liquid chocolate.

S- Bourbon, chocolate, milk and brownies. No heat here at all.

F- Bourbon milk chocolate brownies. That is all.

M- A bit on the thinner side but quite mellow and easy to drink. Again, bourbon chocolate brownies.

O- Good stuff. I think I prefer 2014 to this, but I'm definitely glad to have had this one.

Poured into a snifter from 22oz bottle.

Pours a perfectly pitch black oily liquid with a nice half inch tan head that is dense and espresso like. Very dense and thick and viscous head that sticks to the sides. (4.0)

Aroma starts off with sweet fudgey barrel notes. Delicious notes of chocolate fudge, syrup and cake. GReat underlying honey and vanilla spice notes form the barrel. A good lively dark fruit sweetness is also present with some slight prune notes. Then a nice midl roast and dark malt note is present which yields a more robust and balancing roasteness. (4.25)

Flavor is exquisite. So balanced and yet decadent. Amazing notes of barrel start things of with mild 11% heat and notes of honey, molasses and some char. Notes of sweet fudgey chocolate follow with some nice vanilla notes in the finish along with some slight woody spice. then there is a robust deep dark fruit note that rounds everything out and keeps you coming back for more. Mouthfeel is exceptional. Full, rich, thick and did I say full? The chocolate notes interplay perfectly with the sweetness and with the barrel heat as well as with the roasted dark malts. (4.75)(4.75)

OVerall this is a decadent and amazing experience. It's pretty well crafted as a whole especially because the flavor profiles work so well together. (4.25)
