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.
