2011 bottle thanks to gratefulbeerhead, poured into a HF stem.
Pour: An incredibly ugly muddy brown with barely a head. Yuck this beer looks awful. But screw it,
Smell: Really awesome bourbon up front, followed by some nice chewy dark fruits, including figs and raisins. Really awesome toffee and caramel mix in.
Taste: Incredibly complex. The barrel aging comes on strong, but gives way to awesome vanilla, butterscotch, and toffee. Chewy raisins follow, with a lot of figs. Almost a sweet breadyness as well.
Mouthfeel: Pretty hefty bourbon warmth, but I'm okay with sipping this. Really relieved this is not too sweet either.
Overall: Awesome Old Ale. They nailed everything here, don't be fooled by the looks.

Notes taken on my phone a few nights ago. Huge thanks to my cousin Sonny for sharing this one with me, an all-time Want for me. Wish I had my notebook but the notes will have to suffice.
A- Poured to a wine glass with a dark brown almost opaque body. Small foamy white head forms but quickly recedes to the edges as a small ring. Spotty lacing for the most part but some nice patches around the glass.
S- Deep bourbon and huge old ale aroma blasts out of the bottle, I could smell it right as I broke the seal. Bourbon is not alcoholic feeling but quite smooth while remaining strong aromatically. Rich caramel sweet base and some raisin, slight cocoa dark malts.
T- Follows the nose very well, rich and decadent old ale with a great barrel bourbon feel blended in. The old ale base reminds me of a less sweet Old Stock, big raisin and dusty aged caramel. Bourbon is a bit peppery and has vanilla oak notes. Slight dusty dark cocoa feel.
MF- Super thick bodied with a semi-creamy but mostly oily feel. Carbonation at a moderate low level but suits what is happening. Finishes with some sweetness and a soothing warmth on the palate.
Right up my alley. Super intense Old Ale flavors and huge but ABV well hidden. The bourbon barrel is strong but the base has a ton complex flavors of its own.
