4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours deep mahogany with a tiny head that instantly fizzes out to nothing. Big aroma of toffee, dates, boozy bourbon, oak, & vanilla. The flavor is strong, hot bourbon and alcohol up front, then the rich toffee and caramel malt come in and smooth out the flavor, no real hop bitterness. Medium to full body with mild carbonation and a thick, soft mouth feel. Overall a great beer, lots of bourbon character in this one but maybe that’s why I like it so much.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a tan head. The aroma is full of brown sugar, bourbon and raisins. I also get some nice alcohol notes. All of the components in the aroma are very, very nice.
The flavor is just as complex and just as nice. I get a lot of brown sugar and molasses notes, as well as a lot of bourbon, oak, maple and vanilla. The alcohol is present, but it is not as strong as expected from a 13.5 percent ABV beer.
Medium moutfeel and medium carbonation.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2010 vintage. A big thanks to the traders who sent me this.
A - Pours a caramel color with a few bubbles, my expectations instantly drop.
S - Molasses, bourbon, vanilla, oak.
T - Like a tootsie roll in a shot of bourbon. Chocolate, vanilla, molasses, and oak. It’s decadent and hard to see how it could get better.
M/D - The lack of carbonation is perfect. I thought it would be hard to finish a bottle, but the second it warmed up I couldn’t stop sipping it. A great barrel aged old ale, probably the best out there consider the price and availably of it.

Taste of caramel, raisin, toasty marshmallow, candied dried fruit, complex and delicious. Medium thick body, a bit under-carbonated and linger of oats on the palate.

12oz bottle courtesy of Styles. Pours a deep ruby, almost brown in my snifter, with a thin off-white head that that quickly fades to a thin ring. Aroma is heavy with bourbon, with notes of vanilla, toffee, and oak. body is full. Flavor is sweet malt, with a lot of toffee, and vanilla. The bourbon character is much smoother than the aroma would suggest.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle, 2010 edition, courtesy of ibrew2or3. thanks so much for this one, dave! pours a beautiful, slightly sticky, hazy, cherry-wood color with a whispy beige head that dissipates quickly but leaves thick sheets of lace on the glass. aroma is absolutely stunning with huge notes of toffee, charleston pralines, and toasted marshmallows backed by heavy notes of figs, raisins, and dark cherry with smooth, woody oak, bourbon, and cinnamon spice bread that mellow into vanilla and sweet maple as it warms. flavor is simply wonderful as well and picks up a bit more fruit in the form of baked apples, raisins, plums, and dark cherries that layer atop rich toffee, subtle chocolate, and vanilla backed by smooth bourbon, spices, and toasted wood with the elegant hints of maple showing through on the back end. palate is rich and full bodied with a smooth balance of sweetness, tart dark fruits, and warming bourbon. overall, a marvelous old ale that definitely deserves to be in the top 50.
