4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge thanks to SoLan for hooking me up with one of these from his personal stash. Guys generosity knows no bounds, and Antoine Walker would be proud. Bottle number 96 of 204 bottles. Pours a dark brown color, with a light brown head. Smells of huge rich matl, toffee, caramel, bourbon, and scotch notes. Really dug that nose. Flavors were big on the vanilla and toffee, with the scotch and bourbon notes and alcohol hints really show up in the finish and the heat lingers in the aftertaste. Graha crackers and chocolate cream are also evident. really great blend of flavor and heat. Big and bold, I like it. SoLan for Heisman.

Bottle during RBWG 2013. Brown pour with a small khaki head. Rich BA aroma with tons of nuttiness, vanilla, wood, sweet caramels, and a touch of oxidation and apples perhaps. Flavor follows suit. Really glad to try it!

Dark brown pour small tan head soapy bubbles. A touch of cedar and tobacco was my first thought. Huge syrup sweetness lots of brown sugar. Well coated lightly sticky palate. Sweet brown sugars caramel a touch of dry wood in the finish. Very good warm finish great in small doses as the huge sweetness really ads up.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at RBWG thanks to drowland! Pours a dark reddish brown with thin off white head and light lacing. Aromas of dark fruits, roasted dark malt, light booze, vanilla, brown sugar, and nuts. Taste follows, like a bourbon barrel aged version of a nut brown, but a hint more booze and dark fruits. This is awesome, can’t believe I was able to try this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Opaque dark brown liquid with small to medium light brown head. Aroma of sweet dried fruit, chocolate, bourbon, liquor, biscuit, port and light vanilla. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dark fruit, chocolate. A bit bland. Full bodied with low carbonation. Very thick. Nice but too laid back taste.
