Served from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, date on bottle says aged 2012.
Appearance - poured a really nice dark brown color with just a small layer of light brown head. Completely opaque in the glass.
Smell - seems to be dominated by the oak from the barrel aging. No alcohol smell whatsoever. The aroma is relatively mild.
Taste - the taste is dominated by oak and a creamy vanilla flavor. As with the aroma, the alcohol is hardly noticeable. There is a bit of a bitter aftertaste, perhaps from the roasted malts. Definitely a beer to drink slowly.
Mouthfeel - definitely some astringency in the mouth while drinking, and it is a strange mix with the sweet and creamy vanilla flavors. Otherwise very pleasant, very lightly carbonated.
Overall - lovely dessert stout with sweet and distinctive flavors.
