out of a bomber. aged for a year.

great nose with heavy bourbon and chocolate aroma

mouthfeel was very thin

great upfront taste with a lot going on. lots of dark fruits, chocolate, bourbon flavor was not lacking. sadly, the flavors flatlined FAST. never experienced this before with barrel-aged beers. was very odd.

maybe i should've drank it fresher. not sure what happened. for reference sake, next to firestone's offerings, this one pales in comparison. would not buy again.

Not sure on the lower ratings on this, as the version I had in Jan '15 was delicious, glorious nose of chocolate and bourbon and a restrained sweetness perhaps imparted by the use of agave. Sure, a little thin, but also craz drinkable. Props.
