MIght have past prime. Pours very dark, very small head leaves fast. Some big bubbled lace. Smell of soy, tar, heavy malt and vanilla. Pleasant taste, good malt, held up well, not cloying. Hot. Mouth is heavy, balance is to hot bitter in the end, but as I said, probably over peak. Glad I finally tried it... been cellaring for some time.

Cellar-ed 2 years and 2 months (released July 2012, consumed Sept 2014). Tasty, smooth, bourbon is still very noticeable but oak has faded. Past its peak because of this in my opinion.
