A - Black as night with gorgeous 1.5 finger of chocolate brown, bubbly head. Lacing coming down looks great. Can't see the carbonation on account of the beautiful, black brew.
S - Initial blast of oak and chocolate. Get a bite on the nose from the bourbon. Great woody, nutty smell. Smells almost of an old workshop full of wood. Great! Espresso is huge as well, complex and changes. Remarkable nose.
T - Starts at front with oakiness with the coffee. This alone is a great combination. Then comes the bitter chocolate bite, and following that is the bourbon. You can tell there is a decent ABV here (11.2%). Slight booziness at finish, leaves warm mouth feel. The wave over the palate is phenomenal.
M - Full bodied and buttery. Leaves a velvety coat on your mouth. Warm at the end. Not the most drinkable (ABV, duh). Lingering feel/taste is very appealing.
O - Been aging for 6 months. Couldn't take it an longer! Great stout. The bourbon barrels add a whole new level.
