4.85/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Been sitting on bottle for about a year and finally recieved the 07 in the mail today so I managed to let it sit for about 5 hours before cracking it open.

A- Thick tan head on a bitch black body. Nice thick lacing that sticks to the side in a solid wall.
S- Huge bourbon nose, oak, vanilla, sweet chocolate, burnt malt, and some hot alcohol.
T-Tons of bourbon flavors that come through really nicely. Lots of vanilla and oak thats blended with a lot of chocolate. Some dark fruits seem to make their way through but not sure if they are even in here. Almost a touch of cherries and a few raisins? Hot alcohol comes through nicley and really warms the back of the throat. The vanilla really stands pronounced. Light dry roasted and burnt character left on the tongue with the warming alcohol in chest and throat. There is some oak and bourbon characters left over in the aftertaste also.
M- Full silky body with low smooth creamy carbonation.
D- This must be one of my favorite stouts. The bourbon is really strong in this and this is from the 2nd running on the barrel. I have one bottle from the first so that should be amazing. I will probably sit on the rest of the bottles for at least 4-5 years.

3.69/5  rDev -15.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle in small tasting glass. Date of review is 7/21/14.

Appearance- Nothing special whatsoever. A deep dark brown fills the glass. A semi-hard pour results in no head at all. Lack of lacing is present too.

Smell- Sweet malt, bourbon and vanilla in that order. Brown sugar and green apple present themselves as well.

Taste- A bit sweeter than I expected. Also, I get the alcohol burn, but it's 12% ABV what do I expect. Bourbon and vanilla are the two most dominant flavors.

Mouthfeel- Way way too thin for a beer called Older Viscosity. It disappears as soon as you take a sip. It does,however, leave a pleasant sweet taste in your mouth.

Overall- I had this beer a few years ago and I remember it being fantastic. This time around, it was below average for a barrel-aged stout. I will not seek this beer out again.
