this thing is pretty sick, in addition to be an awesome barrel aged thing, its also a needed reminder (for me at least), that base ten fidy is pretty supreme, and frankly leagues better than the other staple oskar blues releases. this pours like chocolate syrup from the tap, accumulates essentially no head, just a thin film like crema on an espresso, same color too. nose is heavy whiskey and deep syrupy dark malt aromas. less coffee, more dark chocolate although both are present. i get a dried fruit thing, maybe raisin in there too, and then the vanilla and the booze. the flavor is very similar, with an almost fresh cut tobacco character and sweet woody richness. the texture here is mentally insane, one of the thickest beers ever, black tuesday thick honestly, with basically no carbonation, although i dont wish for it. its nice as a slippery thick cordial type beverage, where even a short pour is plenty for me. but wow is this rich and distinct, the base stout standing up proudly with the barrel influence. booze is actually pretty laid back, even at warmer temps. something real special here, as good as oskar blues has ever done, and a treat to drink. to be mentioned in the same breath as the other heavy hitters and prized beers in the style. i mean that.
