Presentation: 500 mL bottle chilled and poured into my Hill Farmstead tulip glass. Big thanks to Infinityontrial for picking me up a bottle.

Appearance: Pours a decent, medium to dark brown head that holds a pretty thick lacing. Dark brown to black in color.

Aroma: Light roasted coffee and dark chocolate upfront. Some light caramel and bourbon barrel notes add a nice backing to the strong malt backbone. There is some booze but it integrates almost perfectly in the base.

Taste: Coffee and chocolate fudge upfront create a really nice background for the barrel notes. Lots of marshmallow, oak, and bourbon tones. The barrel is really strong in this compared to other Hill Farmstead beers, yet it remains really balanced.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and smooth. Velvety on the tongue with some nice carbonation.

Overall, this might be my new favorite barrel aged Hill Farmstead stout. Incredible balance, great barrel tones, and off the charts drinkability. It is difficult to stop from drinking this too quickly. The sweetness and bourbon from the barrel is spot on and really takes a great beer to the next level. I had the other version of GoM and this version is definitely superior.
