Picked up a 2012 bottle of this at a small liquor store. Waited a couple of months and finally decided to crack this bad boy open.

Pours a smooth and silky dark brown/black that poured flat on the first glass and a fluffy 3 finger head on the second glass (and no I did not slosh it when setting it down after the first pour).

Aromas of sweet oatmeal and chocolate are wonderfully smooth and followed up with a nice quaff of Kentucky bourbon.

Oh baby is that smooth! Two years did some things delicious to this brew. The oatmeal is very prevalent still, whereas the chocolate is very subtle, and silky smooth bourbon.

This is one of the smoothest brews I've had. I'd like to sample a fresh batch of this to compare what the age did, but to put it perfectly, this is a mouthful of sweet oatmeal, lush chocolate, all enveloped by a smooth as butter bourbon glove.

Overall, all I can say is damn, this was tasty!
