look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
750 ml c&c bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip. 2012 vintage, bottle #4326/5360.
A: Pours a pitch black color with very thin dark mocha head forming on the pour. It recedes to minuscule ring pretty quickly then to nothing. Some stick is left down the glass.
S: Definitely boozy upfront. Pretty sweet caramel presence with some definitive barrel notes. Vanilla, oak and bourbon. Glazed prunes with a little roast.
T: Boozy bourbon notes with nice rich chocolate undertone. Big barrel with some sweet caramel and oak with a hint of roasted malts.
M: Smooth,heavy and silky. Medium low carbonation with a sticky mouthfeel.
O: A very big beer, but not over the top in heat and sweetness. Very solid all around with a great mouthfeel for a beer this big.

From the corked leftovers of Mr. Rode -- thanks man!
Appearance, smell, mouthfeel are all classic barrel aged stout. Nothing out of the ordinary. Small tan head appears and vanishes over time. Some nice bourbon lacing stays on the glass.
Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side, but not enough to distract--it's just the flavor is so powerfull and the beer itself is watery more than creamy.
Taste for me is a very high end, special barrel aged stout. Similar to the raisin and plum of a Dark Lord but with some of the smoky malt feel of an Older Viscosity. If you mixed the two, in theory, that is what I am tasting.
There was not a strong or hot presence from the alcohol, but a few sips and you know the ABV is there and starts altering your state of mind fairly quickly.
