2016 vintage drank in a snifter on 4/29/2016

Look - motor oily thick, reddish tan head, thick lacing

Smell - bourbon, cinnamon, vanilla, oak, marshmallow, milk chocolate, a little graham crackery. Probably the best smelling beer I've ever had

Taste - bourbon, oak, peppers after warming, some spice along with cinnamon, milk chocolate

Feel - creamy as heck. coats the mouth big time, a tad boozy after warming but not in a bad way. extremely smooth and drinkable

Overall - certainly lives up to the hype, which i wondered how that would be possible. Really an incredible offering, and really tastes like it has something different than Abraxas in the base. So creamy and milk chocolatey. The barrel does wonders for this. Only knock is that the taste didn't come through as amazing as the smell. That's nitpicking big time because it was all wonderful and spectacular.
