Poured a 2013 into 3Floyd's teku.

Good clean toffee color, rich white brown head and lacing.

Strong alcohol smell. Hot boozy bourbony.

Great creamy mouthfeel. Taste of caramel, toffee and still a prevalent alcohol aftertaste which heightened as it warmed. Not unexpected for an 11.5 beer.

Maybe I'm crazy but feel like this has lost a little of the rich caramel flavor I remembered. Still a great beer and can't wait for the 2014 release.
