Tried a 2014, 2016, 2017 lineup tonight (as I heard that 2015 was infected). Below I have some notes from the tasting:

2014
Very balance nose. Not too sweet; lots of roasty coffee. Medium body pour.
More of the same. Subtle oakey booze. Coffee present throughout. Predominantly sweet.
Smooth, sticky. Warm

2016
Very similar nose to 17.
Slightly thicker pour.
Sweet, roasty. Good balance. Very subtle barrel.

2017
Super roasty pour. Subtle cinnamon. Roasty, oak, subtle spice, subtle burn. Great balance. Very good. Fairly thin, medium carb.

So. Much. Coffee. It's fantastic. Dark Brown/black pour. Smells like dark roast coffee, a little chocolate and some bourbon. Taste is chocolate and espresso, a little vanilla, and some roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium, not as thick as I would like. Overall, this is fantastic and definitely worth the high score it has. Glad I finally go to try this one.
