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

appearance: very dark, nearly opaque. A few cola highlights peeking around the edges. This beauty looks more like a imp stout but no worries.
smell: Oh yeah, this is the stuff. Rich and decadent. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, caramel, dark fruits. Redolent with all kinds of goodness.
taste: And the taste delivers all the promise of the nose. Doesn't get much better than this imo.
overall: Man, this is a well done brew.

22oz bottle of the 2012 vintage thanks to a trading buddy. Dark borwn color, short head. Smells pretty nice, bourbon, booze, wood. Flavor is pretty good too, heavily bourbon influenced, boozy, oak, vanilla, not bad at all. If I had to guess blindfolded I would have said this was a bourbon barrel aged barleywine.
