look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured 2012 Vintage bottle into snifter, vigarious pour that left a nice 1 inch head, white with a red tint, that settled rather quickly. Color is a very dark brown with a slight ruby hue.

Aroma has some oak and cherry as I'd expect. Dark fruits, whiskey, and toffee are also noticeable.

Taste is absolutely amazing and complex! Starts off with some sweetness, brown sugar, raisins, dark chocolate, cherries. Finish has the perfect amount of bitterness to complement the sweetness and there is a warming alcohol prescence noted

Mouthfeel is almost perfect--nice strong body, lower carbonation, smooth drinking but just a tad sticky

Overall this is probably one of the top 10 beers I've consumed. A great sipper for the colder weather that warms you up. Thanks to BA AirborneBeer for this awesome brew!
