2013 Fresh
Serving Type: 12 oz bottle poured into a Central Waters snifter

Appearance: Opaque with ruby color on the edge

Smell: Straight up bourbon...masks any other potential aromas

Taste: Again, a lot of bourbon with hint of burnt caramel/toffee

Mouthfeel: A little thin with good carbonation

Overall: The bourbon is overpowering the base beer here. I'll sit on a few of these and see if that will fade over time
