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.

Midnight black in color with just a trace of mahogany brown head covering the majority of the top of the brew. Light Brussels lacing. Deep aroma of roasted barley,oatmeal,and bourbon are very enticing. The flavor is a combo of bitter roasted barley, sweet bourbon and oatmeal. The mouth is thick,creamy, luscious and sticky.
