2013 vintage. RR Tion glass.
A: An aggressive pour yields a Coca Cola-brown color with a half inch of light sand-colored, creamy, dense head. The head recedes slowly to a collar of large bubbles. A few streaks of lacing and above average retention.
S: Holy bourbon, batman! Lots of sweetish bourbon front and center, along with substantial hazelnut, some boozy vanilla extract, and a bit of dark chocolate, roast, and black cherry/black fruit. Aroma is well integrated, and gets better approaching room temp.
T: Lots of round bourbon, straight up. Tastes like bourbon was poured directly into a porter. Finishes with dark roast coffee and some oak. Slight taste of booze.
M: Silky smooth, medium body and medium-light carbonation.
O: Fundamentally, this tastes like bourbon was poured into a porter. The aroma is nice, but the taste is a bit one dimensional. This feels pretty light bodied and drinkable given the ~10% ABV, so that’s a plus.

Notes from 7/13/14 - Consumed from a snifter
A: 1/2 inch of dark khaki-colored head which quickly dissipates. Body is the color of flat cola.
S: Bourbon, vanilla, caramel/brulee, rich chocolate
T: Bourbon, molasses, vanilla, chocolate coffee ice cream. Slightly boozy. As it warms there's more bourbon and caramel sweetness.
M: A little thin on the front but turns syrupy on the back. Slight numbness from the booze.
O : Sweet and sippable. I enjoyed it less as it warmed, but delicious nevertheless.
