No time for detailed review. Outstanding. Bourbon is slightly harsh but balanced.

2014 Four Roses

22 oz bottle poured into nonic pint

A: pitch black in appearance very little head with a moderate pour vanished to nothing but a ring around the glass

S: Bourbon, toffee, vanilla, some chocolate,

T: Nice leatheresque aroma taste if that makes sense, some sweet tobacco taste, roasty, bourbon, not the huge vanilla toffee taste the nose implied

M: a slight thinness to it but that seems common with barrel aged beers it's still pretty full and the taste lays in your mouth afterwards more dry than you'd expect from one of these beers

O: it's dynamite, I've had this now Elijah Craig and Edmund Fitzgerald and while not as good as Elijah it's still quite good to excellent.

What a great, extremely smooth beer.

Four Roses is already one of my favorite bourbons, and, as far as Four Roses is concerned, I love the smooothness and sweetness of the bourbon character. I can't say that I can tell this is Four Roses from drinking the beer, but I can tell that it is a quality Bourbon.

Great beer, reminiscent of bourbon county barleywine. Just overall amazing.

SMOOTH and DEEP is the key descriptor here, with just a touch of fruitiness that characterizes Four Roses bourbon

2013

A - poured a one finger thick coffee-colored head into a snifter that left great lacing throughout. The body was dark black.
S - chocolate, roast coffee, bourbon and vanilla.
T - coffee, chocolate and bourbon.
M - medium and slick.
O - excellent. Lots of great stout flavors and the bourbon is done well.
