2012 vintage 22 oz bomber shared with a friend; poured into my trusty Bell's tulip today 4/12/2013.
Aroma: Sweet milk chocolate, a good bourbon and oak presence. A little vanilla. Not super pungent but not weak either. Nice on the nose. (4)
Colour: Pretty average looking milk stout. Dark cola colour, very dark with 2cm beige head that disappears within the minute leaving a beige film but barely any collar. And the lacing is minimal. So pretty average for a BA milk stout. (3)
Flavour: Sweet as heck, bourbon presence throughout from the beginning. As it warms up, more bourbon comes out as well as the milk chocolate sweetness which is probably the lactose. There is a decent bit of vanilla which is really nice and is the cherry on top and comes out the most at room temperature. The oak comes out more at the end. Very nice combination of bourbon and milk stout, probably the best I've had. But then again there isn't a ton of BA milk stouts. (4.5)
Mouthfeel: Thinner medium body, tastes quite creamy but not particularly thick. Aftertaste is a decent bit of bourbon and oak (or could it be just the bourbon? since the oak is part of the bourbon...) not particularly intense but comes with a pleasant dry finish and a little bit of heat at room temp. (4)
Overall: Very drinkable barrel-aged milk stout. The sweetness is really good at complementing the bourbon and malt flavors. It's a very enjoyable beer to drink after dinner and that's really its main role. I very much enjoyed the relative balance of sweetness and bourbon. (4)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep brown, almost black. Big off white head. Nice surface lacing and a medium collar.
Smell - Bourbon. Milk chocolate. Oaky.
Taste - Sharp bourbon flavor. Lingers throughout. Just some chocolate behind it. Otherwise it's all bourbon.
Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Slight bite from the whiskey.
Overall - I like the bourbon, which makes this enjoyable, but there's not much else to it.
