Pours dark with a nice caramel like head. Smell is quite complex after so much aging i'm sure i've missed something but mostly mix of dried fruits like dates, some cocoa. The feel of this beer now as opposed to the one opened last year is that the body has has thinned out a bit. Taste is a blast of molasses and vanilla, the bourbon is there but it's not too hot. There is also totally new flavor that wasn't there last year i opened a XXIV-almost a minty like flavor. no bad but just interesting. I suspect that it may be a byproduct of it's age.

I'v had 4 of these since it came out, my personal opinion is that this beer has peaked; I urge anyone who still has some these in their stockpile to have a look at them soon.
