look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. White cap.

Appearance: Pours a jet black and leaves a quarter finger or so of dark tan head.

Smell: Bourbon, dark chocolate, light coffee, some dark fruits: plum, figs. Well balanced stout aromas. Definitely smells tasty.

Taste: The coffee, which played a minor role in the aroma, takes a more prominent role in the taste. Plenty of bourbon, dark chocolate, plums, figs are also present. Plenty of oak notes are present in the latter half of the taste as well. Finishes nice and crisp with some bourbon and coffee. Alcohol is very well masked in the array of flavors.

Mouth-feel: Low to medium carbonation (more carbonation is present than I would have thought from the pour). Medium to heavy body with a nice creamy texture. Finishes smooth.

Overall: A high quality stout. Plenty of oak as well as bourbon notes are present from the time in the barrels. A very nice array of flavors, a nice, creamy texture and a pleasant aroma to boot. Definitely a quality beer drinking experience.
