look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A- Lacing out of the tap with a thick mocha head
S- Chocolate, molasses, bourbon, slight sweetness
T- Chocolate, bourbon, molasses. All three flavors balanced
M- carbonated well with little bourbon burn
O- an underrated BA RIS. Very well done and will search for more. Tasted it side by side with the unbarreled version and they are 2 different beers.

Serving type: on-tap and bottle tasting

Oh man, I can not say enough about this beer....when I first took a sip the thing that came to mind was CW 16 + BCBS. It has all the complexity of a CW16 with a BIG mouth-feel. So thick and creamy, I have not had a beer with a better mouth-feel. This lives up to the hype and more, this could be one of the best barrel aged stout in America and outside of Minnesota no one knows about it!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Tasted blindly courtesy of Blind BIF #8. 750ml capped bottle poured into Dogfish Head snifter.

A: Body is very dark brown on the pour leading into a luscious black in the glass. Head is a solid finger of fluffy mocha color. Lacing strong.

S: Bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malt, coffee - quite a bit going on here.

T: Wow. What a deliciously balanced bourbon stout. Roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate/mocha, and even some hops are coming through. Only slight nit is a bit of char lingers on the aftertaste.

M: Thick and creamy, solid carbonation level.

D: Very high. This goes down really easy for what it is, and ABV aside, I could drink it all night.

O: Simply one of the best barrel aged stouts I've ever had, and right up there with the much more well known kings of the style.
