had this one on tap fresh
opened a bottle on 1/20/12 (Go Niners!)... bottle dated 10/07/11
this review is based off the cellared bottle.
A: Pours a deep milk chocolate brown, no head formation whatsoever, you can see the alcohol sticking to the glass as your tilt it. So rich in appearance, it looks delicious
S: simply awesome. huge, and i mean huge sweet toffee, massive figs/raisins and enormous vanilla, blended absolutely beautifully with one another. the oak presence matches the bourbon characters beautifully and for it being 12.5% there is no aromatic burn. Just pure awesomeness
T: again, massive toffee, big alcohol soaked figs and raisins. the oak and vanilla finish this brew off with a beautiful creaminess. Very rich brew. and the balance is terrific.
M: borderline full bodied brew. it coats the mouth with a rich toffee and vanilla sweetness, yet there is enough alcohol heat to make this extremely enjoyable.
O: a freaking terrific brew all the way around. its rich, complex and beautifully balanced. at 12.5%, this one still has a bit of heat, but it suits the brew perfectly. I think the best aspect of this brew is the mouthfeel.

Opened a bottle of this on 02 May 2014. Drink at room temp....the colder this was, the more flavors were muted, but as it warmed closer to room temp it really really opened up nicely...either that or I got more drunk! Either way, it was great! Not really gonna go into the finer points of this beer, but the overall finished product is flippin great. No problems with this beer at all.
