thanks to arash1000 for this one, bottled 12/12. Poured from a 12ounce bottle into a CCB snifter, jet black pour, thin tan head. The aroma is full of bourbon, vanilla, roast coffee. the flavors are well balanced, nice mix of all the aromas, lingering boozey finish. the body is medium/full, well carbonated, smooth mouthfeel. a very good beer, glad I have 2.

Thanks to Thirstybird for sharing. 12oz. bottle split amongst two. Pours one shade shy of black with a luxurious two inch, creamy, mocha-colored head embedded with copious tiny pinpricks. Some spots of lacing were revealed during the tasting. Nose is sweet, dark malty goodness, molasses, chocolate and carob. Barrel aging is present and is well-rounded, but not excessive - just a trace of booze. Taste is consistent with nose, but not nearly as sweet as suggested by the aromas. It also comes off a bit ashy. Consistency is medium-light, but feels somewhat thin, with an even, subdued carbonation. An incredibly drinkable and well-balanced barrel aged beer. Twelve ounces is the perfect serving size too. A really excellent stout and well worth seeking out.

Huge thanks to my friend Bill for the hook on this!
Pours near black with a nice tan head. Nose has oak, whiskey, vanilla, cocoa, roasty malts and hops. Taste is well balanced. Barrel aging is well done, not out of control. Medium to full body is nicely carbonated. Ready to drink now, but should age well.

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.
