2011 Bottle served in a Brasserie D'Achouffe tulip.
A- Pores a nice thick black color with minimal mocha colored head that resides to a perfect lace with good retention. A perfect looking stout!!
S- As I pore it i can automatically begin to smell the chocolate!! Rich malts and chocolate dominates the nose followed by beautiful bourbon, vanilla and oak aromas as well. I could smell this one all day, yankee candle needs to makes the sent happen!!! It is a perfectly balanced nose, couldn't be better IMO.
T- More bourbon then the nose. In fact i feel the flavors are reverse then the nose. The bourbon, oak and vanilla are up front, as is the honey. And the chocolate resides in the end. The chocolate lingers well. A perfect tasting stout.
M- Nice and smooth. Very silky and creamy. Carbonation is perfect for a barrel aged stout. This again can not get much better!!
O- I felt last years Event was as good as it gets... I was wrong, it's this years!! What a great beer, not as sweet and more smooth chocolate flavors. I also feel what little tang was present from oxidation is not present this year. I love this beer and Im happy I live where I do.

A- pitch black with a 1/2 finger caramel colored head. A true glass stainer.
S- Huge bourbon notes from a couple feet away. Vanilla, oak, soaked wood. Touch of caramel.
T- Intensely sweet gets things off and running. Bourbon follows next with the vanilla. Charred malts find their way in late. Not sure how much honey was added, but does seem to be easily detectable.
M- Maybe a bit thinner than expected, but still coats nicely. Mid to full body.
O- a nice balance of the barrel notes. Not over done. Probably a little sweeter and lighter body than I prefer on the style, but few flaws in this one
