Pours dark toffee with a small beige head fading into a wisp, but clinging nicely to the edges of the glass.
Smells of toffee with a load of sweet vanilla, chocolate, brown sugar and a touch of booze. Fantastic aroma although it is on the sweet side.
Big brown sugar and chocolate kick up front along with some vanilla, but not as much as the aroma. Sweet sticky toffee/caramel in the middle with a kiss of booze competing with the sweetness near the end. Alcohol is very well integrated for a 15.5% beer this young.
Smooth creamy and decadent mouthfeel. A little on the sweet side with lowish carbonation.
This keeps getting better every year. It's a bit sweet which limits drinkability, but doesn't become cloying. Great flavors and well integrated alcohol. This one is great fresh and I can only see it getting better with a little time.

4.44/5 rDev -0.7%

750ml waxed bottle poured into balloon snifter 14/6/14, cheers Adam for sharing (from notes)
A clear brownish amber, a couple bubbles under a thin film, not much for lace but some wide legs going down the side
S vanilla, lots of sweet bourbon, a pile of brown sugar, a little wood, raisins, there's some booze but very well hidden all things considered, faint molasses, caramel galore, more vanilla and bourbon, more like a liqueur then beer but its working wonders for me
T thankfully it mimics the smell, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, its sweet but manageable, tastes as good as it smells
M thick and syrupy, a little heat but I'd never guess its over 15%, sticky on the lips and a sweet woody finish
O all the important parts are well taken care of, smells and tastes awesome, a little sweet and boozy but its a minor complaint
I'd lay this down for a decade if I had a bottle, drinking well now but this one will be something special down the road, I'm just happy I got to try it today, delicious stuff
