2012 vintage, tasting alongside 12 year, bernheim wheat, old Fitzgerald, makers mark, and pappy. By far the best of the group, only to be topped by the previous mekers mark I was able to enjoy very fresh. Still haven't been disappointed by the series. Cheers

4.23/5 rDev -5.4%
Bottle 466 or 2011
Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color with a film and some bubbles; very little lacing (particularly compared to the others in the series)
Smell: Chocolate fudge and Bourbon, with vanilla, oak and toasted coconut in the background
Mouthfeel: The Bourbon mingles with the chocolate fudge flavors, adding vanilla, toasted coconut and oak and building to a boozy crescendo in the mid-palate; the flavors mingle, after the swallow, producing a warm finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation and some warmth in the gullet
Overall: A very nice beer but I was expecting to be overwhelmed; out of the bottles I tasted from my cellar over the past few days my favorites were the Four Roses and the brandy barrel, which were the ones I was expecting to like the least; as they say in the sports world, "That's why they play the games."
