look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bottle Share. 1.5 years aged.

A - Quality black and deep color. Tannish head with small amount of lacing.

S - Smelled of bourbon, dark malts, sugar.

T - Completely mellowed out and not hot at all. Amazing bourbon quality.

M - No carbonation, and smooth character. All the tastes blended together very well.

O - Very impressive. Similar to a '12 or '13 BCS Brand for me. Chocolatey smooth characters throughout rounded out perfectly with hints of bourbon.
