Neat art, corny story on the back. Corked and caged 375ml. Deliver me from a drainpour earlier tonight.... Into a 2009 Darkness snifter.

Pours dark, bubbly light brown cola type carbonation. fizzles away quickly, but enough carbonation with swirls of the glass.

Smells are predictable. Sweet wood, some bourbon, brown sugar. Milk chocolate there too. Smells like a barrel aged beer.

Tastes like a barrel aged beer. A straightforward one that's pretty good. I tried to buy into the blended hype, 2 beers complexifying everything, etc. but I wasn't feeling it. It's just a solid barrel aged strong ale/stout that tastes like Older viscosity, Angels share, etc.

I like the thinner mouthfeel. It's not syrupy or thick. Alcohol is in check, early reviews be damned. (it's been a few months now)

This beer isn't blazing any new trails. I liked older viscosity better, fwiw.

And the price...
