2013 vintage. 2014 was a little too oily and low on carb for me when fresh. Great beer, either way.

Alright, so this one does live up to the hype. Got lucky and got to taste this at a smaller beer fest. Bottle listed the ABV at 14.4 and it smelled like it. But it did not taste like a super heavy stout. Still very robust with coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, and bourbon or course. Damn good stout.
