I had this year's version of the BBAWW, 2013 release.

A - a typical dark brown, deep caramel color, nothing special.

S - I was expecting bourbon, but it was very faint. A little caramel and some toffee, and a faint hint of vanilla.

T - a mixture of caramel, toffee, slight vanilla, and a little dark fruit, slight bourbon, and I mean slight. The faintest hint to let you know it's there.

M - thin...really thin. Watery would describe it best.

O - not what I was expecting considering I've had the previous two years' releases. This year it was disappointing to say the least. The price skyrocketed and the quality dropped. I would say try it on tap, the price of a bottle is unjustifiable.

I couldn't believe how good this beer was
the first time I tried it.

Only had it a few times, and I plan on getting it again it
the next time I see it.

I don't recommend eating anything while drinking this beer,
I do however recommend that you drink it slowly.

its very delicious and deserves to be enjoyed thoroughly.
