Appearance - The stout was a deep black with a bubbly mocha head.

Smell - In the aroma, booze was the dominant note.

Taste - Chocolate made the first impression. Oak and bourbon notes followed with perhaps a hint of vanilla. The carbonation gave the beer a smooth impression before the warm ending.

Mouthfeel - I thought the carbonation was near perfect, creating a real smoothness.

Overall - This is a solid barrel aged stout, but not an elite one.

Layers of toffee, gooey caramel, and dark chocolate on the nose, with the bourbon lingering in the back; on the flavor, there's dark chocolate and berry primarily, the latter imparting a good deal of sweetness. Very long aftertaste on this one, mostly of relatively low cacao dark chocolate

Overall, this is a very sweet, but enjoyable RIS. Just the right amount of bourbon.

Pours a dark brown color with no sediment and an off white head. Nice wood and vanilla notes coming through in the aroma, with cocoa and coffee in small amounts. The flavor has big time chocolate malt flavor blending with vanilla and bourbon nicely. Alcohol sits on the palate slightly. Warming, full bodied brew, Very nice.
