2011.... Unbelievable barrel depth on this beast. Vanilla, toffee, maple, caramel. Oxidation is nonexistent on this bottle. Minimal carb as well. This beer pushes any boundaries I've seen out of barrel aging, just brilliant.

Picked up a 2011 vintage from the brewery in Ft. Bragg. Had to convince my girlfriend it was worth the purchase. It definitely was... (And she agrees!)

L: Dark, velvety red copper with almost no head after a vigorous pour

S: boozy and port

T: caramel, port, sweet, strong (in a good way), vanilla, COMPLEX

F: creamy, full, alcohol

O: Wow this one is special. Easily one of the best beers I've ever had. I would buy again in a heartbeat.
