2006 vintage

Pours dark and sexy. Near black. Almost white head of a finger turns into a small film.
Lace is small, but present. The legs are thick and nice.

Smells of oak, chocolate, coffee, some charred vanilla, and light hints of bourbon.

Taste is sweet, with all the notes from the nose. The oak really dries it out on the back end.

Body is thick and full with a nice creaminess.

This is good... But not as great as the growler that I've previously had. Still, it was fun to drink.
