The last bottle of 2013 cellar reserve beers I was lucky enough to get my hands in thanks to the person I trustee for. I've been pretty hard on this series, most were mediocre but this one tastes better right off the bat. Appearance is dark red, almost brown, short head. Aroma is sweet, not any whiskey barrel that I detect but a nice aroma almost like a 25 year old balsamic. Flavor is sweet, sour, woody, nice. This is probably the best beer from the 2013 cellar reserve series.
