4/5 rDev -3.6%
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.
Pours black with a beige head that soon reduces to a ring but leaves a little lacing.
Aroma: enticing aroma with a good malt base; hints of white wine.
Flavor: rich but not particularly complex dark malts. No burnt elements.
Feel: medium-full body; medium carbonation.

It's a beauty. Pours (barely) a thick black ale, looks like spent oil. Very black. The head is two fingers of light brown bubbles. Foamy, good retention, and a chewy lace left behind.
Malty nose. You can smell both caramel and old barrels. Vague licorice scent. Almost smells sweet.
Flavor mimics the nose with caramel and licorice, only now a certain boozy flavor emerges. It only takes a swig (don't chug this) to know this came from oak barrels. No hop presence, the alcohol destroyed them.
Needless to say, but I'll do it anyway, it's full-bodied and chewy. Very earthy feel from the oak. Alcohol esters work their way from the palate up through the nose. A grainy bitterness comes alive as the beer reaches the back of the tongue. Plenty of heat. Some sweetness, but only for an attempt at balance.
Overall, this is pretty damned good. It's manly, but never over the top. Will sleep well tonight after I finish the bomber.

Poured from 22oz bomber.
Dark black with two inch head, nice lacing.
Smell is of dark chocolate, smokey, earthy and oak.
Taste is very much like smell, oak up with slight earthy and smokey finish.
Mouth feel is a little lite for the style but is still very pleasant.
Overall nice beer, one of the better oak aged brews I've had.
One final note, these oaked and barrel aged stouts are meant to be drank at cellar temp not fridge temp. Took a little time for me to figure this out.
