Huge thanks to unclejedi for sharing this gem.

22oz. Brown bomber poured in to little snifter.

A: Deep mohagony, murky and ruddy. Decent head still with a bit of retention. Some lacing.

S: Great aroma. Amazing barrel, lots of bourbon and oak, very earthy. Some vanilla sweetness and rich malts. Mellow hops, very complex.

T/M: Awesome flavor. Rich malts with the mellow, faint hops. Great bourbon and oak. Everything melds perfectly. Body is full with subtle carbonation.

D: Drinks very well for such a huge beer. Fantastic beer.

2014 vintage, poured from 22 oz bottle into snifter.

Dark reddish-black, head quickly faded to a ring. Smells of molasses, vanilla, oak, and a little boozy. Tastes how I anticipated from the smell, but better. Same flavors as in the aroma, with some dark dried fruits in there as well. Sweet, but not overly sweet. Exceptionally smooth, hides its alcohol well (though clearly a sipper). Lived up to the hype and then some.
