Mine is from 2013 stock, sat on it for almost a year. Not sure what it tasted like green, but right now it is one of the smoothest bourbon barrel aged stouts I have had. You get a light burn from the bourbon and alcohol throughout. A good heavy mouth-feel coats heavy on the tongue. Molasses, dark chocolate, and pecan dominate the tastes. Finishes sweet with a dryness from the 11%. Loving it.

A. Very dark brown, near black. An aggressive pour yielded a 1-finger, amber head that retreated to a frothy, amber rim and substantial film. Almost opaque. Huge frothy laces.
S. Bourbon upfront. Other major notes of bourbon-soaked oak, vanilla, marshmallows, and dark roasted malts. Hints of tannins become apparent after it opens, Boozy. fairly strong aroma.
T. Strong booze dominates - not well balanced. With the strong booze is lots of bourbon and oak. Fairly strong dark roasted malts and hop profile. Hints of coco and coffee.
M. Fairly smooth given the strong booze presence and high ABV. High-fine carbonation.
O. very hot, but still decent. I actually had an aftertaste reminiscent of a bourbon and coke. This is a very strong beer that is best for a share. It wasn't a very spendy BA stout, so that should be considered. I would go for this again.

Pours a dark dark brown essentially black color, decent sized head but leaves not lacing or lasting cap.
Smell is mostly roasted malt with an almost coffee like aroma, bourbon is fairly faint to the nose but is present.
Taste starts out with the roasted malt and a strong dark fruit presence, almost raisin-y, bourbon is quite weak but at least it isn't so overpowering it becomes bourbon like some other barrel aged beers, creamy mouthfeel with medium-low carbonation that is very soft, not overly sticky but lasts long enough so not to be too thin.
