2012 Release. Poured from the bomber to a snifter.

A: Poured black, what head was there was tan.

S: Mostly bourbon, vanilla. Big oak and dark fruit/chocolate, oatmeal.

T: The taste follows the nose well, except there is a sweeter dark chocolate/fudge on the taste. Oatmeal. Almost a caramel sweetness as it warms. Some coffee in some sips as well.

M: Light to medium bodied. Pretty light and easy to drink. Sticky mouth feel.

Overall a good stout. Very easy to drink and pleasant. I like stouts with a thicker body but it's a nice change. This is like a better version of Velvet Merkin.

2013 Vintage poured in to snifter.

A - Deep black with a thin layer of mocha brown coloured head.

S - A big sweetness - vanilla, oatmeal, chocolate, char and a big oak presence.

T - Sweet vanilla, bourbon and chocolate fudge with char and a big oak/woodiness present throughout. Roast. Extremely smooth for the ABV. Becomes even more smooth and flavourful as it warms to room temperature.

M - Full body. Creamy and silky. Light carbonation.

22oz bottle into a snifter, split. Pours a dark black with a good medium brown head. The nose is strong in the bottom with lots of vanilla and oak. There's also a good amount of chocolate. The flavor also leans heavily toward the bourbon, but there's also some toffee, oats, and chocolate. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight alcohol bite. Overall this is another great barrel aged offering from Fremont.
