Review from notes. Thanks to ShanePB for bringing it down.
A: Pours a dark brown/mahogany color with a small tan head with minimal retention and no lacing.
S: Very sweet aroma. Lots of caramel and toffee, a bit of vanilla and bourbon and hint of chocolate. Very nice.
T: Tons of caramel smooth bourbon right away. There is some vanilla and oak that comes forward and a bit of molasses.
M: Full bodied with low to medium carbonation, extremely smooth and surprisingly easy drinking.
O: The first of the anniversary series I have had, but really enjoyed this beer. I can see where it might a tough sell with the price tag, but it was very good.

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
