750ml bottle poured into snifter.

Pours black as night with only the faintest sign of a dark khaki head. The aroma is filled with vanillia, oak, cocoanut, plums, fig, and espresso just to name a few. You really get a strong bourbon profile here. Right up front the taste kicks in with vanillia, both from the barrel and the extra added afterword. Dark fruits come out directly after, then at the back of the palate chocolate and hints of espresso lead toward a bittersweet finish.

The mouthfeel is extremely soft and rounded for such a big beer. You really don't get that this is 11.5% ABV until after a few minutes. This is a killer brew that has everything you would want in a barrel aged stout.
