Pours a thick black with a nice creamy lacing. Impressive for its age. The smell is intense. Tons of oaky goodness, coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Based on the nose, it seems like the bourbon has made its mark. It reminds me of Black Tuesday in intensity. The taste is much of the same. This is one delicious brew! The flavors are all there without being very sweet. There's a slight acidic tartness that seems to come from the coffee that I love. The mouth feel is a bit dull compared to what I was expecting from the pour, but nothing to gripe about.

I just had a 2014 Vanilla Rye yesterday and I much prefer this brew. It is extremely well balanced with flavors hopping (no pun intended) taking my palette for a wild ride! One of the best I've had.

Had this again most recently at the anvil and stave grand opening. A very solid Barrel Aged beer from AleSmith. Great bourbon barrel taste, love the smell of this beer. It's so thick.
