2014, with some weller 12yr on the side

Pours our thick, dark, and oily black. Closely reminiscent of a CCB stout with BC Prop oiliness. Very impressive.

Brilliant aroma of sweet pappy bourbon (graham cracker, pipe smoke, tobacco, vanilla, oak) molasses, chocolate, caramel and slight umami. Really pleasant booziness and completely in balance. Tastes in great balance as well with a nice booziness.

Outrageously thick - very viscous, full, almost sticky. Carries the vibrant flavors well - great boozy sweet and bitter chocolate finish.

This is an astonishing beer.
