Picked up this bottle direct from the brewery on 6/25/11. Opened on the night I moved into my first house. Popped the caged and corked bottle, and poured into my Deschutes tulips glass...

A - Pours a very dark brown, with a brown 1 finger head that fades rather quickly. Comes back when swirled, but no real legs on this one. Maybe decreased head retention due to ageing?

S - Bourbon, vanilla, and dark chocolate. One the second sniff, I'm getting hints of black licorice.

T/M - The taste is amazing, matches the smell very well. Woodsey bourbon barrel and vanilla assult my palette. Very faint coconut flavor, but no noticable macadamia nut. Medium-heavy mouthfeel, slightly under carbonated, possibly from the age.

O - An amazing barrel aged beer for sure! No alcohol heat on this at all, and the flavors really develop as it warms slightly. Glad I had the opportunity to purchase this, but sad it's gone now.

500ml C&C bottle. Served in a snifter.

Picked this guy up about a year ago at the brewery. Been in the 55 degree cooler ever since.

Pours opaque super dark brown, just about black. Just a millimeter of light gets through. Covered with half a finger of dark beige foam. Settles to a thin ring of very dense bubbles. A few dots of lacing.

Aroma is quite dusty. Lots of oaky wood, nutty dry macadamias, rich roasted coffee, lightly sweet chocolate malt. Not as big as I was expecting, but good.

Taste really closely follows the nose. Bitterness and sweetness are extremely well balanced and are both at a pleasant moderate level. Roasted coffee with hints of coconut. Oak and vanilla with a fairly light tinge of bourbon. Coconut emerges much stronger in the finish, which dries up as well. No real sign of alcohol, it's buried in there.

Body is fairly thin for what I was expecting, but a nice dose of medium carbonation makes for a great feel and a very drinkable brew.

I never had a chance to try the original collaboration beer, but I certainly dig this one.
