Draught, '05 vintage, @ BTAH VSK.

Pours cloudy red-brown, with a nose of vanilla, oak, sweet malt - nose is bourbon-y without being quite as up front as some other whiskey aged beers.

Flavor back up the nose - big and rich, very port like, with a finish that gets a nice balancing off-dryness from the whiskey and alcohol. Alcohol itself is fairly well hidden.

Mouthfeel is big and syrupy.
