2013 bottle now aged 4 years.

For the first time I'm appreciating oxidation in a beer. It certainly is but I'm strangely not put off by it. The coffee in its original form is long gone, but a shell of where it was remains with outlier elements of char, roast, and pepper.

There is still a large amount of sweetness and barrel in this beer. Loads of vanilla, carmelized sugar, toffee, brown sugar and bourbon.

It's leaves you dry, spicy, and satisfied

Overall it's a shame I didn't get to try this fresh but even with such age it's entirely evident what a carefully crafted top tier beer this is.
