First of all, I'm a big fat fan of Old Viscosity. Couldn't wait to try this. And I can't remember if it was OlieIPA or Mauerhan who popped this since both of those meatheads practically drowned me in delicious limited releases durning my final six months of college. Bastards.
Pours a gorgeous creamy tan head over deep black. Real nice.
I smell a little fruitiness (might be Kris) and maybe just a bit of sourness (might be Mike), some milk chocolate.
Flavor is huge. Little bit of barrel, some very nice red licorice not present in Old Viscosity. Hard to describe - not really 'stoutish' - more like - I don't fucking know - but very good.
Sickenly velvety smooth. Really impressive. This beer catapults to my short list.
Overall: absolutely awesome!

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.
