2014 bottle. Not much coffee left, so I added a few teaspoons of french roast. Brought it back to life. Otherwise, great base beer and lovely barrel notes.

Year old bottle. A little too much wood in back end to be outstanding.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is jet black, with a thin halo of light tan head. Aromas of rich vanilla, dark roasted coffee, subtle chocolate, brown sugar, and earthy highlights. Flavors are smooth and creamy sweet forward, a blend of chocolate and vanilla, with an immediate follow of rich roasted coffee and subtle char, solid booze notes, hints of earth and brown sugar sweetness, a touch of molasses, and some smoky accents. Very dynamic and layered palate, all on a rich, creamy, velvety body. The aftertaste is roasted coffee, vanilla, and bourbon, and it is perfectly balanced. Smooth, creamy, slow finish, with a solid boozy and roasted sweet linger. What a tremendous beer!
