Fresh from bottle 2012. Black pour with thick tan head. Aromas of booze and bourbon. Had previously enjoyed evan williams bottle, which I thought had a little better aroma.Taste is spectacular. Not getting as much chocolate and coffee as i got with the evan williams either. Overall, I’m surprised to say I found the Williams a little better, which I did not expect to be the case.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012. Big bourbon nose, almonds, marzipan, coconut, butterscotch, licorice, vanilla with a woody nose, bourbon completely dominance and a weak chocolate but more towards barley-wine maltiness enters the nose. Taste is a bit chocolate upfront, but shorly after big vanila woody notes, quite sweet, but not that extreme taste or mouthfeel. Solid, but a bit of a disappointment.

Bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is light roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, bourbon, wood and vanilla. Flavour is sweet and light bitter. Full bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation. Finish is long, slightly burned and nice balanced barrel character.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost black, a bit redbrownish with a small beige head that covers the surface.
Aroma is mostly sweet, brown sugar and bourbon dominate.
Taste is sweet at first, then roasted with dark chocolate/hot cocoa, peppery, bourbon notes that doesn’t over power everything else, some alcohol heat. Surprisingly bitter.
Full body, low but very present carbonation, smooth and round mouth feel.
Long bitter roasted after taste with alcohol heat.
