Damn dark stout and at 9something% was not expecting that. The small dark brown head dissipates fast. No real lacing.

Whiskey, vanilla, Graham cracker and milk chocolate. Sweet boozy inviting nose.

Pretty barrel forward with lots of whiskey and wood. Little bit of vanilla. Chocolate and roasted coffee.

Nothing like a big oatmeal stout. Really smooth.

Easy drinking for a big barrel stout. Thoroughly enjoyed.

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!
