look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep brown, almost black with little light showing through. Beige head that receded quickly and left some spotty lacing. The nose was bourbon forward with lots of cocoa, oak, vanilla, coffee, molasses and general maltiness. Taste was similar to smell. Malty with bourbon, oak, cocoa, coffee, vanilla and molasses. Medium-low carbonation. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Very smooth, sweet, rich, dulcet. The boozyness is still there, but has definitely had time to mellow out over the last 2+ years.

Overall, it's a fantastic beer that's aged exceptionally well!
