Big thanks to TheDuke for this bottle (and cwhittle/beachstrength49 for a bottle of 2012 that i will be getting to in the near future!).
2013, bottle # 2059 of 8856
enjoyed from a hangar 24 snifter
a - brew poured a deep shiny black with an attractive dark tan head that dissolved leaving a thin skin of bubbles and some streaky lacing on the glass. great barrel shine.
s - nose is rich decadent chocolate with a maple glazing and some warmth and vanilla from the wood. bourbon is there adding to the decadence. smells great.
t - taste matches the nose...simply awesome. rich and decadent chocolate with a maple booze wash over the top.
m - lush and rich. full bodied, but not chewy. the 13.8% is there, but well hidden.
o - overall, this is a winner. one of the better barrel aged stouts i've had in a while. really rich and decadent and simply delicious. at first i was a bit concerned about taking this one to the dome, but it is just TOO tasty that now i'm glad i don't have to share :)

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.
