Thanks, match1112!

(Aged for 1+ year)

Black throughout, though not particularly thick or menacing in appearance, like some other barrel-aged stouts. Small ring of dark brown bubbles, but not much of a head. Very little visible carbonation. Leaves the glass oily and spotted.

Not a ton of barrel in the aroma, though there are some complementary notes. Along with the barrel are definite, rich, roast and chocolate notes. Complete, though not particularly mind-blowing.

The flavor follows the nose. This is not particularly heavy with barrel notes, but the base stout is exceptional: chocolate, roast, a bit of vanilla, and some wood accompaniment.

Medium bodied with low carbonation.

Good, and exceptionally drinkable, but I wouldn't seek it out or trade for it again. There are just too many good or better available, local options.

Great share from Scott, thanks man. 3-4 oz. poured into a tulip on February 2nd, 2013.

A - This looks really similar to Vanilla BCBS in both color and depth, but with a twinge of ruby-like caramel at the edges. Virtually zero carbonation or lacing but it's got a moderately sticky residue across the sides.

S - Not as rich in distinct Stitzel-Weller Pappy as BCBS Rare but I get a decent trace of that very distinct oak. Light cocoa, moderate roast.

T - Better than anticipated. Initial dark chocolate melds into richer butterscotch and honey almond. Easily better than aroma.

M - Medium-high carbonation, tannic, medium body, dry aftertaste.

D - I'm not astounded but it's memorable. And in a world of BA-everything, that is a complement.
