12-oz bottle released Jan 2013.  Thanks to Gottatickemall for the bottle.  Pours dark with tan head.  Not a lot of carbonation.  Smells of sweet dark fruit and chocolate.  Let it warm up a little.  Taste matches the smell.  A very balanced stout with no single dominating components.  Barrel characters are there but no alcohol heat like some other barrel aged stout.  So drinkable I think I can drink it all night and not get tired of it.  Kind of reminds me of the 2012 Abyss.

Half inch light mocha head on a black body. Cap and collar, small splotchy lacing.

Sweet bourbon notes in the nose.

Pretty damn smooth bal-ness. Toasted coconut hints from the oak. Light roastiness. Would guess about 11%abv.

Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Good call from egrace84 on the similarities to CWBBS. Dig the coconut notes. Thanks kawilliams81.
