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

750 mL bottle, 2012 #323 of 1400, poured into a tulip

A- Black with a large dark tan head that fades very quickly.

S- Bourbon, vanilla, molasses, toffee, some chocolate, raisins/dark fruits.

T- Bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, oak, roasted malts, a coffee like bitterness in the finish, dark fruits, there is some heat from the bourbon, but it isn't harsh.

S- Smooth, creamy, full body, well carbonated.

O- An other great barrel aged beer from Evolution. There is a good amount if bourbon and it is well balanced. I happy to say I have tried all vintages fairly fresh and the only one that had any issues was the 2010 because it was completely flat which hurt the taste. I really hope I am able to pick up more. And please remember this is kind of close to a bourbon barrel aged stout, but is not claiming to be one.
