2013 bottle poured...

A - Pitch black in color as you'd suspect, light brown head with a decent lace though not as much as I'd hoped for

S - Bourbon upfront with some chocolate notes and then a honey smacks you at the end

T - Just like the nose but even better. The honey rounds the barrel out perfectly. This is an amazing, amazing BA taste

M - A tad on the thin side but perfect carbonation levels, ultra smooth, alcohol hides well

O - This is truly unique and amazing. The honey rounds out the barrel amazingly well. The ABV hides and the chocolate and vanilla rise to the forefront. This is excellent.
