Pours dark as a starless night. Normal head, lacing and retention for a barrel aged stout.

Rich nose of bourbon over mostly chocolate, but roast and hints of dark fruit are also present. As it warns, coffee is noted.

Light full body with a rich smooth texture that is almost creamy. Normal carbonation for barrel aged with effervescence in the finish.

The excellent flavor profile is well balanced and complex. It begins with bourbon, under which is sweet dark chocolate that progresses to roast and coffee, then rotates to a caramel and dark fruit sweetness. Notes of raisin, plum and molasses are detected across the profile. It finishes smoothly with sweetness, and a slight alcohol note, roast bitterness and a fading bourbon flavor.
