corked and caged with a lost abbey cork and cap. poured into spaten becker. 2009 vintage
the brew has no pop when the cap is taken off, nor does the beer make any foam when poured into the glass. it is, however, completely black in body colour. the smell is incredible, bourbon, oak, prunes, roasted malts, burnt sugar... if only it were a tad stronger! this is quite like the black tuesday I just had, only it had a bit of less compelxity. the initial is a bit more coffee oriented and less on the booze, for obvious reasons. the dark chocolate comes out in the aftertaste quite strongly, and the finish has less of a booze burn. the carbonation is a little more crisp than expected, and the drinkability is great if the brew weren't so hard to get. the feel of the body is too thin for me, as there is quite a lack of carbonation.

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.
