A ~ Black with burnt ruby highlights. Very Subtle carbonation. Nice & Syrupy.
S ~ Rich Caramel & Charr notes with a swift undercurrent of whiskey & vanilla.
T ~ Burnt Caramel, Whiskey, Cereal Grains/Oatmeal, with hints of vanilla bean & cassia. Barrel Juice & Baking Cocoa on the finish. Brown Sugar/Turbinado flavors as well.
M ~ Creamy, Syrupy & Spicy with very delicate carb that surely will concentrate & scrub the palette a bit more as time passes.
D ~ Great Barrel Aged Stout. Recommended. Great label artwork too. I'll try it again in a few months to see if carbonation is increased.

Thanks to Nathrax for sending this over in a trade!
A: Pours a very dark brown, almost but not quite black, with lightening on the edges. Decent amount of sedimentation can be seen in the glass. Less than 1/2 fingers width of tan colored head builds and then quickly dissipates down. Leaves a fair amount of lacing.
S: An almost sour dark fruit aroma, roasted malt, subtle cocoa. Oak and a little bit of whiskey booze are the only components I get from the barrel, and are faint.
T: Roasted malt, booze, chocolate, some oatmeal stout flavors, whiskey oak-like characters from the barrel.
M/D: Medium body, thinner mouthfeel that I expect in the style, appropriate carbonation, not terribly smooth, ABV is very well restrained though and drinkability is good.
O: Kind of disappointed in this one. I would certainly prefer stronger barrel notes and a fuller mouthfeel. Flavor/aroma could be bolder as well. Still good, but I had higher expectations.
