2013 bottle as a trade extra. Pours murky brown amber color with a small off white head that recedes quickly. Beautiful bourbon aroma with plenty of vanilla, oak, toffee, caramel, brown sugar. Flavor is lots of brown sugar, raisins, vanilla and marshmallow finish, bourbon, toffee, oak, a tad of metallic oxidization. Big body, some booziness, medium plus carbonation, smooth long finish. Nice brew and deserved love in the style.
