2017 Vintage (had with breakfast on a weekend getaway)

Pour - heavy and thick like motor oil. Not much lacing and only a thin tan head.

Smell - Amazing coffee aroma. Slight bourbon aroma as well.

Taste - Very sweet up front. Definitely drink this fresh, almost no coffee flavors came through. Very little bourbon as well. Actually tasted like I was drinking Port.

Feel - Nice creamy texture. Very chewy

Overall - Had 2016 fresh and it was amazing. This one sat too long. Tasted like I have to go to the bathroom now.
