Popped the cork on a 2011 vintage bottle. No "pop" at all from the cork, I had to really pull that thing off.
A: Almost fully opaque dark brown color, with the slightest amount of tan bubbles. Basically flat. Really surprised at the lack of carbonation.
S: Very boozy, lots of bourbon notes. Chocolate, vanilla, wood, leather. Sweet dark fruit and dark chocolate.
T: Strong chewy bourbon up front. Dark chocolate, super sweet booze, vanilla, oak, leather. Good amount of vinous character to this beer. Warming alcohol far into the finish.
M: Chewy, chewy, chewy. The lack of carbonation, high ABV, and big malt character make this thing a beast on the palate. Tough to finish a 375ml, but outstanding complexity.

Poured from bottle in small tasting glass. Date of review is 7/21/14.
Appearance- Nothing special whatsoever. A deep dark brown fills the glass. A semi-hard pour results in no head at all. Lack of lacing is present too.
Smell- Sweet malt, bourbon and vanilla in that order. Brown sugar and green apple present themselves as well.
Taste- A bit sweeter than I expected. Also, I get the alcohol burn, but it's 12% ABV what do I expect. Bourbon and vanilla are the two most dominant flavors.
Mouthfeel- Way way too thin for a beer called Older Viscosity. It disappears as soon as you take a sip. It does,however, leave a pleasant sweet taste in your mouth.
Overall- I had this beer a few years ago and I remember it being fantastic. This time around, it was below average for a barrel-aged stout. I will not seek this beer out again.
