4.33/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark amber with orange hues, minimal tan head falls to leave nice lacing. Smell is toffee, vanilla, chocolate, loads of caramel and milk chocolate. Sweet toffee and milk chocolate, caramel candy milk duds, figs and rum bread, mild coffee tannin, nice mellow bourbon vanilla- just the right amount. Mouthfeel is medium thick, carries the flavors nicely; carbonation is medium and prickly. Overall pretty damn good, my favorite of the vintages and right up there with parabola batch I.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.
