Murky almost still pour, amber gold. No head. Nose is rich with lots of Bourbon and wood with some sharp notes. Very rich and bourbony flavor. Toffee and caramel all over with some toasted alone and tannic wood. Very full and rich plate with very low carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2013 bottle. Pours a murky dark orange color with absolutely no head. Aromas are bourbon, vanilla, oak, sweet caramel, and raisins. Taste starts with sweet caramel, plums and raisins but is quickly overpowered by the bourbon barrel. Huge vanilla and oak with a good amount of actual bourbon. Finish is boozy with some hot alcohol. Thick body that is pretty chewy and syrupy. No carbonation. This is kind of a mess. Did I open this too early?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2011 bottle. Poured hazy sunset orange with pretty much no head sticking around. The aroma picked up lots of sweet, aggressive, decadent bourbon with caramel, vanilla, and a little maple beneath.. slightly off-putting medicinal overtones.. I enjoyed the bourbon, but the rest really didnít come together. The flavor found molasses, maple, and vanilla at the core, with the same aggressive bourbon (plus related peppery character) laced throughout.. finished hot with mostly bourbon character. Thick and syrupy on the palate with very low carbonation.. coating.. left a long, building bourbon burn down the throat into the belly (with some oxidation).. hot overall.. this just didnít do it for me.

Taste is toffee, belgian candy sugar, sweet fruits and subtle bourbon. Lots of sweetness all around. Bourbon notes are very smooth and not overpowering. Good stuff.
