A - viscous but liquidy pour with a subtle tan head that leaves quickly; the carbonation is active and the lacing non existent
S - bourbon, toffee, dark chocolate, cherries, mocha, booze...this beer also captures some sweet oak/wood
T - caramel and chocolate; fudge; roasted oats; tobacco; dark cherry pipe smoke; boozy; wood; a hint of toffee
M - surprisingly, this beer isn't sweetly cloying; it's smooth, nuanced, balanced, a little under carbonated; tasty up front with a little burn going down
O - just an awesome barrel aged imperial stout; the chocolate cherry oak sweetness is a bit smoky and a lot tasty and packs a punch without any palate destroying astringency; knock out beer
