On tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).
The very fine stout that serves as the base for this special edition gets a bit lost in this barrel aged version, especially the coffee. But this is, nonetheless, a fine barrel aged brew. The barrel effects dominate but are not overwhelming, leaving some dark roasted malts showing.
Has a fine smooth feel, although the alcohol shows more than I would hope.
Beautiful dark amber body is covered by a very durable beige head.
O: worth seeking out.
Serving type: on-tap

Mini-growler picked up at Brewer's Haven in Boise over the weekend... Poured tonight... Short lasting dark brown head... the brew is black and seems to be a little thin but has some decent legs.
Nose is a great boozy mix of coffee and coconut!! Coconut/dark chocolate is pretty amazingly out front. meaty and vanilla with lesser stout qualities..
Flavor is bigger boozy than expected, but not a deal breaker... again a pretty big coconut component with some whiskey/dark chocolate notes... vanilla and toasty oak move from front to back with the "stout" elements showing as milk chocolate and tying things together.
Body is a little light given the hefty ABV.. but still it seems pretty proper.
