I'm not a huge Stout fan and really not a bourbon barrel fan but I try to be fair to the tastes and beers I try, like this one.

Smells big and intense yet tasty even to me. Rather intense/big taste but still felt smooth to me over all. The taste, to me, didn't seem to linger on the tongue so long that I couldn't taste anything else, which was a nice difference to me at least. This baby is big and can slap you in the face at 18-19% but if you're a fan of stouts and bourbon barrel aging, definately get this.

A-dark brown black color with a minimal tan head and no lacing

S-dark chocolate, coffee, bourbon, molasses, oak, little vanilla

T-dark roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, little dark fruit, oak, little vanilla, bourbon

F-medium body with little carbonation, smooth and a little boozy, but less than one would expect with the ABV

O-enjoyable stout meant for sharing with friends, would drink again
