Pours a light black with ruby and brown highlights with a small, tan head.
Smells of sweet bourbon/alcohol with notes of charred oak, chocolate, cherry, vanilla, and bready sweetness.
Taste is bready, biscuit malt up front that goes into a chocolate liquor middle (bourbon and hints of others) before finishing on a smooth, yet warm chocolate biscuit character with notes of vanilla and oak. Everything balances quite nicely.
Heavy body with low carbonation works well. The alcohol is a bit too present at this stage, would be killer with some age.
I couldn't ask for a better barrel aged stout. It's not too liquor forward, and it is quite drinkable without aging. No stopping FW.
