look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Aroma is mainly boozy alcohol and some vanilla. I really don't smell anything else.

Kind of tastes the same. Very sweet. Vanilla and some bourbon. More heat than flavor though. I didn't get any stout flavors until the very back end and through the aftertaste. It is mainly dark chocolate and marshmallow. Like a Smore without the graham cracker. Very, very weak though. No coffee to be found.

The carbonation seems very high. By far the most I have felt in a stout, let alone a barrel aged one. It did not show in the pour though, which makes me wonder if it is more of an infection/bad bottle.

Regardless, I was very disappointed. I know I am definitely in the minority here, but my brothers both felt the exact same way. We didn't even finish the bottle between the 3 of us. We all found it to be very muted flavors and the crisp/sparkling aspect was hard to overlook.

Heavy roast and sweet lactose on the nose. Medium bodied, mellow bourbon, and heavy chocolate up front. Really fantastic BBA RIS.

16.9 ounce bottle, no date on it that I could find but I believe it's from a recent release a couple months or so ago. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch or so tan head that lingered around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. I like the aroma, it smells like bourbon, wood, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. For the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some dark fruit noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and smooth, and easy to drink. Moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, definitely worth picking up if you come across some! $11.99 a bottle.

On tap at Madtree tap room, poured into snifter.

Pours black with a thick dark khaki head.
On the nose you get tons of vanilla, oak, espresso, and some mild chocolate.
Bourbon notes are very strong throughout.
The taste is very similar, loads of creamy vanilla on the front of the tongue.
Mid palate you get roasted espresso, turning into bitter chocolate in the back.
Thick full bodied mouthfeel, zero alcohol burn.
This is a very solid barrel aged stout. If your a fan of the style, this will not let you down.

poured about 16oz into snifter from a growler.

A - Dark obsidian with brown highlights around the edge of the glass. Big foamy 2.5 finger head and some of the most beautiful lacing I have seen from a stout. I mean it just coats the glass after I drink it. A thick cap remains for the duration of the session.

S - Mellow bourbon, bitter dark chocolate, rich caramel, vanilla, marshmallow, milk chocolate, earthy hops and some wood.

T - It is quite bitter with a smooth and nice bourbon presence. Plenty of dark bitter chocolate, caramel, vanilla, marshmallow, milk chocolate, earthy hops and some wood.

M - Medium-bodied, silky, perfect carbonation, not very thick but still smooth.

O - This is quite good and the carbonation is about as perfect as any BA stout ever made. Big thank you to Harold for shipping a 32oz growler to me. It was a real pleasure to drink.
