It pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up molasses, dark roasted malts, a touch of chocolate and a light degree of boozy barrel notes. The taste delivers chocolate notes, dark roasted malts, a bit of molasses and then a thin smooth bourbon sensation. This is solid and rich and a supper sipper.

2012 bomber bottle with blue wax shared by a friend. Poured a darker black colour with a slight tanned ring on top. Nose of sweet sticky chocolate, vanill, dark toffee, roasted nuts, oak, and sweet bourbon. Taste is sticky and full bodied, with roasted malts and more sweet bakers chocolate. With sweet marshmallow and bourbon. Pretty Nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle shared by Spencer. Vintage 2012. The pour is a dark brown, light black color with a thin light khaki colored head and some spots of lace. The aroma is a little boozy that comes through with a nice chocolate and some roast. It's pretty bland. The flavor has a little oak but pretty dominated by malts and roast. It's disappointing. The mouth feel is thin and light with a lingeringly roasty aftertaste. It's good, but disappointing.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Vintage 2012. Aroma is bourbon barrel, oatmeal with sugar, roasted malt, sweet malt, milk chocolate, very good. Appearance is black, light brown, great pour. Taste is booze, some roasted malt, chocolate, slight vanilla, pretty bland. Mouthfeel is thick, viscous, flavor is hanging and the carbonation is slightly off. Overall, I thought it would be better but it’s pretty bland.
