750ml bottle into a tulip glass thanks to finewinemike
Bottle number 09806
A- Pours a deep dark reddish brown with 1 finger worth of khaki head that sticks around leaving a rim of big bubbles sticking to the glass. Tons of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass, small head retention but some really nice sexy legs on the side of the glass.
S- Slightly roasted malts with lots of dark fruits like rum soaked raisins, figs, and dates. Also getting notes of molasses, vinous grapes, cherries, fresh leather, toffee, and slight wood notes. Definitely a big boozy note in there.
T- Sweet sweet toffee and caramel up front that is quickly taken away by a strong array of raisins, plums, and cherries. Lots of candied sugar, molasses, brown sugar to help with the sweetness, also big notes of wood, musty oak, and leather. Believe it or not the alcohol is there but very well blended and hidden.
M- Full bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice sweet mouth coating finish.

4.03/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A - Pours a deep burgundy color with a thick toffee colored ring of lacing around the glass, mild carbonation.
S - Dark maple syrup, brown sugar, toffee, musty, oak, and some dark fruit and sweet molasses.
T - Some sweet dark tart fruit, oak, bourbon, vanilla, light smoky oak, and some cherry acidity. Initially I was getting some roasted toffee on the palate but that quickly faded away and was replaced with the acidic tart cherry notes.
M - Finish is very dry but because of the presence of some tart acidity the dry finish quickly turns to semi-dry, then disappears. Velvet consistency across the tongue, thick, viscous, and lip smacking sticky.
O - With the bottle being (3+) years old it's expected the flavors and aroma have been muted.
In it's current state, predominantly oak, tart fruit, and Bourbon. If anyone likes to cellar bottles and has one of these left, I wouldn't let it sit much longer.
