4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom’s Third Anniversary Barrel Aged Fest... [Vintage 2009] Poured black with a light brown, bubbly head. Aroma was whisky, oaky, dark brown sugars with some roast. Chalky, cocoa, dry palate. Not as bourbony as I would hope. Creme brulee sweetness, rhubarb, ginger root, ginger bread and molasses.

Black pour with a rich, dark brown HUGE head. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, espresso, tons of rich coffee notes. Flavor is coffee, earthy, dirt, roast, smoke, nicotine. Pretty roasty/smoky with some nice coffee elements. Don’t get much bourbon from this though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from dak on 3/21/2010.
pours a dark brown shade of black with a very large cafe au lait colored head. lots of foamy lace.
really roasty aroma mixed with notes of cream, coffee, bitter cocoa, vanilla, caramel and some green spiciness (hops or barrel?).
the flavor is the same along with ashiness, loads of hoppy dryness and a bitterish spicy finish. not a lot of bourbon in here?
creamy mouth feel is kept drinkable with ash and dryness. 7/4/7/4/15/3.7
