Finally getting a chance to try this one in a full taste versus a one ounce sample at GABF. Poured into a Cigar City Snifter.
A- Black. Wonderfully black. Leaves a small head that's been in my glass for about 15 minutes now. Go figure: Tommy got one carbonated right? Answer is a resounding YES.
S- Overtures of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Can definitely tell by the smell that it's higher in alcohol content.
T- GREAT. Some may say too boozy but I like the bourbon flavor in this one. A nice little bitter finish to boot. As it warms up a tad, the bourbon shines.
M- Good. Not as thick as I thought it might be.
D- I think it's GREAT, though I'd probably stop at one due to the alcohol content. This is definitely a brew for me; looking forward to another one after a day on the slopes this upcoming ski season.

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.
