5/5 rDev +12.6%
thanks to dtmets84 for bringing this to a bottle share - 2011
Appearance: Pitch black oily, small brown head
Smell: Absolutely beautiful with some spice, vanilla, dark chocolate, sweetness, and barrel.
Taste: Roasty, coffee, vanilla right away...well hidden alcohol. Sweetness from the honey is there.
Mouthfeel: Silky and smooth...good body and round mouthfeel
Overall: Easily a standout in its style, but moreover a standout for me against anything I've drank. We tried this against Black Note, King Henry, and BA Blackout and this one was a consensus winner. I will seek out another bottle of this so more people in my circle can wonder at this marvel.

The beer comes in a pitch black color.
The aroma is wonderful brilliant of honey, gentle touches of vanilla and bourbon character, a medium amount of sweet roasted coffee.
The flavor is sublime for a character aged beer. Definitely a "Hill Farmstead" style of restraint and complexity. Bourbon lingers throughout. Roasted coffee hits in the front. A honey and vanilla sweetness moves the beer through the palate. The mouthfeel is smooth and minus full, and not very sticky.
One of the best barrel aged beers I've had. Just a shocking amalgamation of flavors that dance wonderfully together.
