Draught at Bistro's 2009 Barrel Aged Festival. Tried this back to back with the 2008 version, and while it is still very good, was not quite up to it's predecessor. Whether this is purely due to the difference in barrels (Jack Daniels vs. Pappy van Winkle) or the additional age, I can't be sure, but I have a feeling that the barrel treatment on this version just didn't come out as smooth as last year. Pours black with a small head of frothy tan bubbles. Oak and whisky are a bit more prominent on the nose than the 2008 version, with a sweet caramel and dark chocolate richness underneath. Decadent chocolate and oak flavors with some whisky bite that dries out the finish a little. The oak lends a light spice that blends in well, and a touch of vanilla. Full bodied and smooth with lower carbonation. Great stout, but I think the original bourbon aging used last year worked out better.
