Thanks to Rado for sharing this one at AndrewK's tasting.

Bottled 9/16/13.

Pours an opque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, toasted oat, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, wood, and slight smoke aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great balance between the barrel aged aspects and the base beer.
