Bottled on March 12, 2012, so last year's vintage.
Poured in to snifter.

A - Poured black with a thin layer of light brown head that reduced to a ring around the glass.

S - Roast, chocolate fudge, charred oak, bourbon, vanilla and a hint of coffee.

T - Roast and chocolate fudge from the base beer that integrate well with the barrel characteristics of sweet bourbon & vanilla and toasted oak. Sweet cocoa in the finish. There is the faintest hint of coffee present but the coffee profile has definitely faded away in the almost two years since this beer was bottled. Would like to try this one fresh.

M - Just short of being full bodied. Very light carbonation.

Bottle dated 2012

A- Pores a nice thick black color with minimal mocha colored head that resides to a perfect lace with good retention. A perfect looking stout!!

S- Rich malts and coffee dominate the nose followed by beautiful bourbon, vanilla and oak aromas as well. I could smell this one all day! It is a perfectly balanced nose.

T- More bourbon then the nose. The bourbon, oak and vanilla are up front and the coffee resides in the end. The coffee and bourbon flavors linger well. OUTSTANDING

M- Nice and smooth. Very silky and creamy. Carbonation is perfect for a barrel aged stout.

O- What a great beer, I love this beer and cant wait to try the 2013!
