Reviewed from notes. 2013 vintage. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Peg's snifter.

A: Pours a caramelly brown color with a thin off-white head and low visible carbonation. Very hazy.

S: Bourbon, caramel, vanilla. Quite sweet, moderately boozy. Some sticky malts, dry tannins from the barrel.

T: Bourbon and barrel character with huge vanilla and dry tannins. Toasted caramel, sweet roasted malts, a moderate dark fruit character. As it warms, some mixed sticky fruit flavors come out - reminds me of what I would expect a fruitcake would taste like, although I've never tried one. Finishes drier/less sweet than expected, but still possesses some ethanol sweet burning character.

M: Medium-bodied, carbonation sensation on the low side. Alcohol presence is obvious but seems well-hidden with respect to the listed ABV.

O: I enjoyed this one. It was a surprisingly easy driver for such a huge beer. Nothing I'd always need on hand, but a nice blend for sure. Glad to have tried it finally.
