First review, not first time consumed. 2014 bottle in a Pipeworks snifter.

Beautiful color, little flavor clouds swirling. Smell is just heavenly, boozy, malty. The taste is amazing, still smokin' hot after 9 months or so. Strong bourbon flavor, but balanced by the maltiness creating a complex and robust flavor. Full and rich mouthfeel.

This is a really outstanding beer that I look forward to every year. CW makes many outstanding BBA beers, and this one is my favorite. Run to get this one.
