750ml bottle of the 2014 vintage. Poured into a Cigar City snifter 7/27/2014.
A- Dark, pitch black body with a half finger tan head. Short retention time, filmy and slick. Looks oily.
S- Lots of bourbon and oak, along with cocoa, vanilla and slight roast malts and smokiness. Nice smelling beer, very bourbon forward.
F- Bourbon, oak, dark fruits, molasses, cocoa, vanilla. Lots of stuff going on here. Nicely done.
M- Medium body, a bit chewy and viscous. It is a fair bit boozy, but not enough to deter me from continuing to drink the pour.
O- Quite a bit like BCBS, just a bit thinner. Lots of that bourbon, oak, vanilla that BCBS is noted for. Pretty good stuff.

Truly a fine, powerfully delicious brew. Very dark cloudy ale, you know you are in for some a rich drink. The nose was mild, malty and smooth roasted, with a bit of the bourbon in there. The taste was fantastic! A dark roasted malt flavor is very present with molasses tones, the bourbon present especially at the start, a nice creamy-vanilla smoothness wraps it all together as well as mildly chocolate flavored. Finally a smoked, roasted taste at the end, even terms like oak and leather seem accurate. This was a rich, heavy feeling ale, wonderfully creamy, some carbonation, really goes down well, surprisingly easy to drink. I am partial to this style, but all-in-all, one amazing brew, even on a summer evening with a old friend.
