Bomber; thanks Alex!! Bottle #338 of 2009; dense black pour with trace tan head; huge bourbon nose with creamy coffee, nuts and roast; super boozy right now; spicy hotness with sticky bourbon; some caramel and cookies, but this is way heavy on the barrel to me and not nearly as impressive as when I had on draft at the brewery in August ’09 (hat was the winter ’08 batch); that batch I’d rate near a 4.2, but this one is more like a 3.5, so let’s split the difference :)
