Bottled May, 2013. Couldn't get to the Anniversary party, so I brought a part of it to me.

A - Pitch black. Actually had a finger's worth of dark brown head that disappeared quickly.

S - Complex is an understatement. Bourbon, oak, roasted notes, burnt notes, slight vanilla, dark chocolate-covered cherries.

T - A sweet, non-cloying bourbon hits you first. A lot of oak and dark fruits. The Port Damon is more on the taste than the nose.

M - Nice and fluffy.

O - HF barrel-aged beers tend to be too sweet for me, but this has changed that perception. In additional to all the flavors, this is also incredibly (borderline dangerously) smooth to drink.
