4.4/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
2012 bottle. bomber. aged 1 year in my cellar. poured into taster glass.
A: a slight haze on an otherwise dark brass/copper hue.
S: complex. coffee, caramel. a lot of oak, but not a ton of bourbon. present but not kicking you in the balls. dark cherries. a lot of vanilla.
T: more vanilla. booze. lots of booze, actually the first thing I notice. bourbon on the palate is where this thing comes to play. big time booze makes me think I didn't age this long enough....some roast and chocolate as well.
M: mellow. little bit of carb sizzle but nothing crazy. full bodied for sure.
D: glad this thing has gotten as low as it has (attenuation wise) otherwise it may be tough to drink. otherwise, super big. dark flavors. dark chocolate, bitter dark grains, black cherries, complex, more boozy than I would like. I wouldn't have mind it if I aged this for another couple years just to smooth it out a bit more. however, still super drinkable now.

5/5 rDev +10.1%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance: The beer was a cloudy shade of black with an off-white colored head crowning the glass.
Smell: The nutty notes jump to the front, but malt and bourbon are also very detectable.
Taste: I love the nuttiness that starts the taste. Nuts, caramel, sweet milk chocolate notes balance in the taste. The bourbon does not overwhelm the taste, but lends itself to balance. The warming aftertaste makes each of the taste notes glow a little brighter. This is orgasmic!
Moutheel; The mouthfeel is a little syrupy and resembles a port. Of course, this allows the taste to linger for an exceptional amount of time.
Overall: This is my first perfect score on BA; I really can not say anything bad about it. I certainly wish it was more accessible.
