4.2/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
375mL bottle, poured into a St. Bernardus goblet.
Appearance: Pours out pitch black with about 1/2" of dark beige head. Not a lot of retention or lacing, but carbonation is definitely present which is a great sign.
Smell: Smells of mostly sweet chocolate and bitter chocolate to a lesser degree, with strong barrel, vanilla, and bourbon notes. Overall combination comes off sweet, but not cloying.
Taste: Fairly sweet overall, with milk and dark chocolate, paired with a bunch of vanilla. Hints of oak and roast. Bourbon dominates back end and finish. Nice barrel qualities here.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Very full body with low carbonation. Sllick. Could possibly use a bit more carbonation ,but not much. Overall, a very nice barrel aged stout. Good qualities from the barrel. Could use a little less sweetness but I don't want to complain too much.

3.69/5 rDev -15.2%

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.
