Consumed October 11th, 2015 from a bottle labeled January 2011. Poured into a tulip.

Beer is dark brown on the borderline of black. Thick and viscous pour, like used motor oil. In a good way.
A vigorous pour generates a one-finger dark brown head that doesn't hang around too long.

Aroma is dark roasted coffee, chocolate and a hint of bourbon. Fantastic nose.

Flavor is strong, smooth and well-meshed. Coffee, chocolate, wood and bourbon. Wonderful.

Mouthfeel is thick and silky smooth.

At nearly five years old, this beer is fantastic. Many thanks to Thirstgoat (Jeff) for the bottle!

Dark with a strong coffee aroma. Very smooth a great beer to sip on and enjoy. Very warm, has that sense of bourbon to it. Saving a few of these to age them over time, but this beer is excellent! Can't wait for this year's release.
