Big thanks to olympuszymurgus for opening this at a recent tasting. '10 bottle.
A- Pours a murky brown with a thin off white head that leaving minimal lacing. Like most HotD brews, this isn't the prettiest girl at the ball.
S- Amazingly complex with notes of dark chocolate, camp fire, slightly unripened apples, roasted malt, peat, caramel, burnt sugar, bourbon and a hint of soy.
T- The taste follows the aroma with a great deal of complexity without any flavor being dominant. Plenty of earthiness with smoke, wood and peat followed by burnt sugar, apples, leather, roasted malt, bourbon, caramel, soy sauce, and some booze.
M- Light carbonation with a thick and full mouthfeel. Some heat at the finish.
O- One of the best I've had from HotD. An incredible beer to sip and savor.

4.55/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. This is the latest release (2013). Reviewed from notes from a couple days ago.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a slight orange-ish hue. Leaves a small off-white head.
Smell: Big smoked meats, sweet bourbon, oak, brandy, dark chocolate. Very interesting and different aroma.
Taste: Matches the aroma well, which is very nice: Bourbon, brandy, dark chocolate, cedar, nice smoky finish. Very well balanced flavors. Not overly sweet.
Mouth-feel: Low carbonation, but definitely enough. Full body.
Overall: This is a very tasty, and different beer. The interesting barrels have really put a twist on this and its really nice, smoky and sweet. Very well done brew.
