Bottle shared by Dany after our rooftop dinner. Wood and vanilla, sweet caramel. Warm and sweet, nice creme brulee. Long sweet caramel and toffee. Not my preferred style but this was quite lovely.

Picked this up a trade last winter. Pours hazy dark brown with an off-white head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and sweet malt. Flavors of toffee, caramel, vanilla, bourbon, and sweet malty goodness of a BA Barley Wine. Solid all the way around.

750ml bottle from 2011. Dark mahogany with no head. Oak, light vanilla, some booze, smooth, semi-sweet and strong malt backbone, some caramel, get some plum and surpringly tangerine notes (although think fruit allowed to soak in a whiskey cake for a while). Mild carbonation, full body, smooth, somewhat sweet, becomes slightly dry on the finish. I think some time did this one good - whiskey has balanced out and no longer overwhelms the palate.

(750ml bottle) cloudy medium deep orange, soapy offwhite bubbles. Nose of vanilla, rich bourbon barrel, umami, sweet cream. Taste of cream, vanilla, faded American hops, bourbon, oak, caramel, complex and awesome.
