2014 update:
This year's brew is a bit different. More oak, little Bourbon in the aroma/finish.
Vanilla is weak, compared to previous years. The taste is still creamy textured chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, laced with a whiskey finish. There is an alcoholic finish, but the Bourbon presence is diminished. A great beer, but I miss the strong Bourbon aroma/presence.
2013
Poured in balloon glass (goblet). Deep chocolate color. No Head.

Wow! Immediate bourbon from the aroma. With my nose closer in the glass, vanilla.

Mouth feel: mild, but some hops presence.

Taste: bourbon, vanilla- whiskey-like. There is a strong bourbon presence.
The mild body to the beer enhances the taste- a lingering bourbon-vanilla which becomes smoother with warming.

I had this beer last year at the first anniversary party. I like this year's Baltic porter even more. Last year, I thought the beer was excellent and looked forward to it. This year, there is an added complexity, more bourbon-vanilla character. My balloon glass brought out the tasting notes to their fullest.
