2013 vintage. Pours pitch black with no head and little to no lacing. Lots of bourbon, dark fruit, and tobacco. Caramel, chocolate, fig, anise, bourbon, and dark roast coffee on the palate. Some alcohol burn. Full bodied with little carbonation. Overall this beer is a monster best sipped. Quite delicious.
