Fresh 2014

Pours as dark as the base - incredibly creamy mocha head for a BA beer. Oak barrel dominates - vanilla, some graham cracker. Dark roasted coffee, roasted malts, some dark fruits from the coffee, bakers cocoa. Flavor is full and finish is long, dry and roasty with a booze kick. Pronounced oaky vanilla in the taste. Do not get much bourbon, just oak barrel and it works very well. As it warms up more sweet barrel nuances come out.

Great stuff. This has been a personal whale for a while
