Massive thanks to Morgan in socal for sharing this one with myself, mnphish, amyhran, icecoldphatty and others - 2012 vintage:

As you'd expect, it pours pretty much identically to the base beer... edges if copper clarity, a thin khaki head and loads of oily alcohol aftermath that coats the cup.

Surprisingly mellow bourbon quality - takes a back seat to a variety of figs and dates, milk chocolate, vanilla oak, fresh coffee beans, some sweet dessert notes... caramel or toffee. More chocolate goodness.

Wonderful. Sweet assertive bourbon layered with caramel, fudge cake, brown sugar, molasses, chocolate liqueur, just as big and bad as BT with chocolate addition that somehow draws everything together instead of pushing the diabetic envelope.

Incredible stuff. I remain in search of...
