3-year vertical: 2010, 2011, 2012

I'm going to review the freshest version - 2010 was a bit flat and heavy on the smoke/leather. 2011 was a little better, but 2012 was definitely the best.

Ebony body - nicely carbonated, fudge, bourbon, vanilla, coconut, nice barrel notes. This was quite good - happy to have a bottle. Not sure if it ages poorly or if the recipe has just improved over the years, but i likely wont sit on my bottle much longer
