Reviewed from notes from 6/18/14

'11 vintage
A- Poured into my CCB snifter it is almost black, with dark brown hues around the edges. A tiny wisp of a tan head quickly dissipates, and only miniscule bits of carbonation can be seen rising. Not super pretty, but expected with the style and barrel aging.

S- The aroma is sweet dried/candied fruit bliss! Prunes, raisins, dates, figs, and even some dried pineapple and apricot! A huge malt backbone of caramel and bread. Significant vanilla and oak from the bourbon barrel come through. Hints of dark chocolate, cherry, and blackberry finish things up. As far as the style goes this may be the perfect aroma!

T- The taste follows the aroma pretty well, though there are some additional flavors. The first I noticed was damp tobacco. There is some peat, and a surprising bit of tart cherry. The dark fruits from the aroma are present, but perhaps not as prevalent. Fig and prune are the most noticeable, with raisin following right behind. The caramel and bready malts play a good supporting role. There is a hint of vanilla, but very little of the chocolate from the aroma. Significant amounts of medicinal and alcohol flavors take a bit away from this.

M- The mouth feel is thick, but not overly viscous. A bit sharp with alcohol, medicinal feel, and low carbonation.

O- This was awesome and incredibly complex! I only wish the harsh medicinal and alcohol flavors weren't so pronounced.
