Note: Have had this on more than one occasion but first review. Aged for two years

Look, brown caramel looking beer with good head and retentions. To be fair the only knock would be the amount of sediment floating in it. It doesn't bother me at all but strictly rating on look you'd have to mark off for this.

Smell is perfect. a blend of sweet bourbon and vanilla smacks you in the face. Like a backwoods backwoods on steroids.

The taste an insanely mellow sweet bourbon brew. Caramel and vanilla are in the distance enough to balance out the bourbon. One of the best tasting barrel aged beers I've ever had.

The feel is so mellow and smooth. This is definitely a sip and enjoy the glass as long as possible kind of beer.

Overall I've had this beer when it first came out and it was pretty good then, but this beer should be the poster child of what aging the right beer can do. Wish I had more of them to pop. World class for sure.
