3.11/5  rDev -29.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Thin khaki collar but not much else. Black body.

Smell - Ack, lots of cardboard. This hasn't oxidized well. Bourbon. Vanilla. Chocolate. Brown sugar lingers.

Taste - Better. Less cardboard, but it's still present. Rich dark chocolate. Bourbon. Vanilla. Oak. Cardboard lingers in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Still decent carbonation. Seems thin.

Overall - This is way past its prime. Way past good, in fact. Too much oxidation.
