look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
This is a 2010 bottle.
A: Black hue with a large and steady, chocolate colored hue and really nice lacing
S: Lots of bourbon up front; followed by oak; there is a caramel and vanilla undertone; lots of booze up front but it calms down and smells pretty darn good
T: Roasty, chocolate and coffee malts; this beer is still surprisingly hot (it's nearly 3 years old) but not as much bourbon as I expected but lots of oak--especially in the finish
F: Creamy and viscous and pretty chewy in the finish but also pretty dry from the wood
O: A nice beer but still pretty hot for a '10
Serving type: bottle
