I believe this is a 2010 vintage. Can't find the date.
Popped the cork and there was the sound of a flat brew awaiting me. The pour did nothing to help my suspicions. Poured a dirty brown with no head present at all. No lacing. No bubbles. No nothing.
Gets better with smell. Reminds me of a nice aged barelywine. Big vanilla. Nice oak. The bourbon is still present. Fermented dark fruits. Brown sugar. I could smell this all day long.
The taste, though rather flat, is good. Has a nice bourbon flavor and some sweet malt. Fruity. Caramel and more vanilla. Tasty stuff.
Silky mouthfeel is all I can appreciate with this. Much too thin. Almost like water in the consistency.
Overall the look and feel of this was not great, but the flavor and aroma made up for that...which is the most important part anyway. A really good brew but add some lasting carbonation and this would become great.
