Thanks to OtakuAle for throwing in this extra. Pours like coca cola with creamy lacing. Nice bourbon barrel aroma with lots of milk chocolate, vanilla and brown sugar. Somewhat sweet but not cloying. Not a great deal of molasses or soy in comparison to some stouts. Nor is there a big hop profile (thankfully). Body is medium with a creamy, medium/high carbonation level. Overall, quite a tasty barrel aged stout. Reminds me of Odell bourbon barrel stout with the slightly thinner body than many big stouts. I'd take a Goose Island BCS over silva stout, but still quite enjoyable.
