2011 vintage.

Appearance: Pours out pretty much pitch black in the glass. No light can be seen when it's held up to the light. About 3/4" of thick, dark khaki head forms, which has excellent retention and nice lacing. Very good looking stout.

Smell: A lot going on on the nose. Initially, light charred malts and milk chocolate sweetness intermingle. Following that the barrel pretty much takes over. Very prominent oak presence, as well as vanilla and bourbon. The barrel definitely stands out on the nose, but does not overshadow everything else that is going on. Pretty well balanced.

Taste: Good roast/sweetness balance up front. Barrel presence is, again, still strong. Plenty of vanilla and bourbon notes present, and the back end is heavy with oak tannins.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel was very thin for the style. Finish is not long lasting. Nice fine carbonation makes it surprisingly smooth drinking, but that does not change the fact that it is thin. Really retracts from the taste for me as well with the thin finish. Overall, a decent stout. Nice favors and barrel character, but the mouthfeel leaves something to be desired.
