Had this on tap in Oklahoma City's Republic Gastro pub (great food, great beer selection here!).
A - Deep dark, tan head that laced nicely on the sides of the glass.
S - Roasted malt goodnesss.
T - Very sweet and malty, nice roast, not burnt at all, and nice hints of oak, not overwhelmingly oaky (which is a good thing to me). Some oak aged are too heavy on the oak, but this is very nicely balanced.
M - Very smooth, nice and thick.
O - Really enjoyed sippin' on this. It took a while to get through it, it is a big beer, but the flavor is fantastic. It is on the sweet side, which I personally enjoy, but for some it may be a bit much. Reminded me a lot of Surly's Darkness (big compliment). Really nice job here Coop! Highly recommend.

Unmarked bottle that appears to be this brew from trader.
A: pretty standard BA RIS, but you can see through this one a bit more.
S: Oak Bourbon forward, nutty RIS background
T: At first this reminded me of an 06 BCBS, but then I realized that there is more oak nuttiness to this brew. Definitely more than I expected. Great brew.
M: This for its style
O: I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. I have not had a BA Stout with this much Oak and nuttiness to it. Nuts

2010 vintage from coldmeat23. Bottle #585/612. Served in a snifter.
A - Tan foam settles to a thick collar, leaving behind specks of lace. Black body that is quite opaque.
S - Hefty doses of vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate, oak, dark fruit, and perhaps a hint of whiskey.
T - Taste is quite similar, with roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, and dark fruits dominating the palate. Perhaps a tad sweeter than aroma, and with negligible whiskey contribution here. Alcohol is well-hidden.
M - Medium body that is sufficient for 9% but definitely a bit light for an Imperial Stout. Slightly chewy and sticky texture, with a bit of oaky dryness in the finish. Some mild alochol warmth after a glass, but fairly tame.
D - Another pleasant Oklahoma surprise. The oak-aged element of this beer is pretty tame, but it's a tasty and competently brewed Imperial Stout. Hopefully my 2011 bottle is just as good.
