I acquired 3 bottles of this and will be playing with aging them and re-reviewing accordingly.
after aging 3 months:
A- the woods are lovely, dark, and deep and so is this beer. Pours a thin mocha head that dissipates to a ring around the glass leaving a small bit of lacing
S- you get those coffee and chocolate notes from an imperial stout, but the bourbon definitely is not bashful.
T- if I could have a birthday cake, I would want it to taste exactly like this, very thick roasted malt and coffee, a hint of chocolate, and that wonderful woody bourbon sensation
M- creamy, rich chocolate and coffee, lingering bourbon aftertaste
O- If only it were a 750mL bottle instead of 500...
after aging 5 months:
A- lot more lacing, head is a bit heartier
S- bourbon has mellowed out and you pick up more chocolate notes
T- still just as wonderful
M- still just as wonderful
O- split the bottle with my dad and it was so good that I no longer cared that it was only a 500mL

Big props to nick for hooking me up with a bottle in a math trade.
Gonna stray away from my usual way of reviewing. I wasn't going to review this beer, I told myself I was gonna be selfish with everything I get from the math bif, just sit back and enjoy a full beer without trying to pick out every detail to review. I wasn't going to share anything because I think there's something special about working your way through an entire bottle, like a long dance.
This is one of those beers. I came to read up on it, and with more gots than wants and 30 something reviews I had to write something. At 500ml it's not a very difficult task to drink through this alone, infact it may not be enough!
I'm a big advocate of 8-9% being the sweet spot for ba beers and looking at the base beer I'd say this guy is around there (although for all I know it can be much hight and drinks like a champ)
And the taste? Incredible. Washing it across the tongue brings out so many different flavors it's quite ridiculous actually. This beer is right uptime alley, it's got everything I want and I'm loving it. It feels like this beer was brewed for my taste buds. Mouthfeel is spot on, and probably a major player of why this guy is tastin so great.
Unfortunatly it's very easy to finish this, what now seems like the tinniest bottle possible alone, and I encourage you to do the same. Spend an evening with a bottle of this guy, it's the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
Nick u rocked my world with this one. The next bottle I get Ill try to share... maybe
And damn u shaun for living up to the hype and making beer this delicious.
