look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter

A: Clear, dark brown. A half-finger tan head that quickly dissipates. Light lacing.

S: Bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits. I could smell this one all day.

T: Whoosh! Sweet, smooth, bourbon-y. Dark fruits slide right in. Never saw the 15.5% hit me upside the head. A truly excellent taste.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: One of the best beers I've had. And certainly one of the kings of old ales. Sip slowly and enjoy the moment. It won't come around like this very often.
