Look: Opaque black with a rich mocha colored head. Lots of lacing and legs keep the head nice and thick

Smell: huge chocolate, coffee and vanilla notes that you can smell from a couple of feet away. Also getting more roasted coffee, slight whiskey, some barrel, dark fruit, chocolate cherries, and slight tobacco. Smells fantastic

Taste: Huge coffee hits the tongue, followed by dark cherries dipped in bourbon, vanilla, more coffee, and lots of barrel on this one

Mouthfeel: Rich and smooth at first but quickly becomes big bodied and heavy on the tongue alcohol is present but not overpowering with the oak barrel taste adding a nice dry finish.

Overall: Outstanding brew. Surprised how complex this one really is. I thought the coffee would dominate but a lot of the original stout shines through with those nice dark fruit notes. I also really enjoy how much of the barrel shines through!
