2009 vintage in the gray ceramic bottle served in a snifter. Dark brown cola pour. Surprising amount of carbonation for the age under a cork. An off white head fades quickly but a gentle swirl brings the dense, consistent foam top right back for a moment. Aroma is maple, oak, and bourbon. Itís got the same aroma as Utopias or Triple Bock. I had this in 2009 upon the release audit was a luxurious, boozy, elixir. This is still good but Iím sad to say that at this age itís lost a lot of the body and sweetness I recall from before. The flavor is more oak than beer and the palate is very thin. Alcohol heat remains but this drinks much more like a whiskey than a beer. I wish I had opened this one sooner.

Brun och rätt stilla. En överväldigande smak med bourbon. Fatlagringen blir nästan för mycket. Djup smak med torkad frukt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml bottle to snifter (2013 vintage, shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a chewy dark amberish brown with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; a nice balance of caramel, vanilla, oak, and hops. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel thatís very smooth for the abv. Tasty.

2013 bottle from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers! Thereís a ton of barrel-aged flavor and aroma as soon as I opened the bottle. Sweet, caramel flavor thatís dried out a bit from three years in the bottle, but with so much bourbon and dry oak flavor that it almost tastes like a sweet bourbon. Great stuff.

A consistently great if pricey beer, the sweetness of the bourbon meshes well with the fruitiness and creates a complex monster. Itís too boozy and sweet compared to the complex yet more delicate base imo.
