Received this bottle in a trade with normyk, thanks a bunch Will! Poured into my town hall snifter:

A - pours a very dark brown, nearly black, with just a tiny foam ring that forms around the edges. It almost looks like there is some red hues around the edges. Spotty lacing that leaves no retention on the sides.

S - Wow! This smells amazing! Deep toffee notes with heavy brown sugar, coconut and caramel. Other notes such as vanilla and oak. The bourbon barrel comes through very nicely and smell rich and smooth. Truly a delicious smelling brew.

T - Taste pretty much follows the nose with notes of caramel, burnt brown sugar, vanilla, candy, coconut and sweet, creamy bourbon. There is only a tiny bit of leather and tabacco in it, like in the regular 4th dementia, but the bourbon is more forward in this one and is very nice. There is a bit of heat in the taste, but its understandable at 13.5%. Awesome!

M - Carbonation in this one is pretty good. Leaves a bit of a tingly feeling in the mouth. A bit of heat from the booze but it is very welcoming.

D - Really a great treat. It is a nice sipper for a nice winter night (since we got about 6 inches of snow today.) The bourbon is very nice in this one and it is top notch. I really wish I had more, but I'll let my last bottle cellar for a couple years before I try it again.

I tasted a bottle earlier this year and quite frankly was a bit disappointed in the lack of bourbon presence. I really can't taste the difference between this and Regular 4D. I'd rather stick with regular 4D as it's easier to obtain and not quite as costly.
