Big thanks to a very generous sproser for the bottles.

Pours death black with a tan head that retains for about a minute and then leaves ok lacing from there out.

Nose is alot of roasted malt, a wine-like character and some chocolate.

Taste follows with huge roasted malt, some chocolate and definite whiskey booze presence. The finish has that signature slick giant oatmeal flavor, and roasted malt lingers with whiskey on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is super viscous, although still less than i expected, but pretty much where it should be in a beer like this. Madly slick on the finish, carbonation is medium where it should be.

Drinkability is ok, but this one is pretty heavy, and i can't see having more than one bomber alone.

Overall, a very pleasant, and well made barrel aged stout. I would like it to be a little bit more robust, but when you want that oatmeal action this one suffices for both that and that classic barrel aged awesomeness. A very nice beer. Overpriced like mad, but still quite good.

A - Pours out very dark and forms a great head which disappeared after a bit. Not too much lacing to speak of.
S - Smells perfect for a BA. Nice vanilla and bourbon on the nose.
T - After just a short time aging, the alcohol has evened out a bit but is still there on the finish.
M - Coats the mouth great, almost leaving a film for a bit. Very thick, very good.
O - Outstanding BA!
