375 ml corked and caged bottle poured into The Lost Abbey Teku glass

A: Black, no light comes through, creamy mocha head with lots of tiny bubbles, some carbonation, some minor lacing, head stuck around for quite some time, looks really good.

A: Big chocolate and roasted coffee aromas up front, alcohol, malts, dark fruits, more on the roasted side than the sweet side, but the smell is really coming off the glass, I am picking up the aroma about 6 inches from the glass, big aroma.

T: Big chocolate, coffee, roasted and toasted malts, not getting much of the bourbon, it's slightly there, chocolate and coffee come through more than the bourbon, bitter on the back end with the alcohol noticeable.

M: Viscous, creamy smooth mouthfeel, slight dry finish, alcohol burn that lingers, slight carbonation on the palate, very nice.

O: Very impressed, I would like to have more bourbon character on the nose and flavor but this is really tasty, nice creamy mouthfeel and at 12% ABV, the alcohol is well hidden, not sure when this was bottled but it's very pleasant. Price is a little steep but this will not disappoint.

2011 bottle, opened 2015

A - Pours a flat coca cola black. Trace bubbles around the rim.

S - Sweet, rich, smooth Scotch infused with prune, molasses, vanilla, bright wood, and rum-soaked fruit cake.

T - Rich and sweet. Silky smooth with umami teriyaki, spiced rum, oak, molasses, caramel, and burnt toast. Ends with rich roast coffee, cognac, and milk chocolate. Fantastic integration.

M - Thick, smooth and slick with a full frame.

O - Not surprisingly the beer held up fantastic. The 4 years really added some really nice balance and integration.
