2010 bottle split with Josh. Pours black with a small tan head. The nose is nice - milk chocolate, vanilla, oak, roasted malt, bourbon. The taste is a mish mash of bourbon (w/ vanilla and oak) and smaller amounts of bitter chocolate/coffee. The bitterness in the finish is just a touch much for me in that it winds up being a touch acrid. The mouthfeel is really nice and smooth. Overall, this beer was good, but not nearly as good as when I had it on tap at the Great Taste. Will be happy to try this one fresh.
