3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well, was worried it might be infected with all the posts about it being so. My bottle seemed fine. Maybe a hint of sourness, but I might have been picking up on that due to thinking it would be there.
The beer itself is only ok. Sweet smooth taste. Some bourbon notes. Totally not worth $35 a bottle. This beer should easily only cost $10. Yes it was good, but not that good.

If you have this, drink it now, already going downhill due to infection
Poured a darker cola brown with a beige head. Aroma was of.Bourbon, milk chocolate and light green apples. Flavor was similar, nice Bourbon stout upfront, but unfortunately a semi tart green apple finish. $30 SMD.

Dark pour with one finger of dark tan head. Roasty/vinous aroma, oak and wood with some charr. Lean in the mouth, dry and woody with some tannic oak and bourbon. Thins out a little.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost black with beautiful firm thick tan head. Roasty aroma. Taste roast, chocolate, sour cherries, vinous, dark fruit, very slight bourbon. Thick full palate. Finish sour oak. Big price for a beer that’s not that great. Better as it warmed.

750 ml bottle to snifter, shared with the Mrs. (2014 vintage; bottle 214/1432). Looks good; a slightly translucent very dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells malty with notes of oak and raisin. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel that’s a bit thinner than I’d prefer. Still, good beer.
