P: Thick creamy cappuccino head that billows over the top of a black mahogany highlighted body. Intricate lacing leaving beautiful walkways around the glass.
S: Sweet oaks drenched in molasses, thick rich malts, cocoa, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, big booze factor, vanilla, French oak, and over ripe bananas.
T/M: Huge bourbon flavor, vanilla bean, French oak, roasted cocoa nibs and milk chocolate. Old leather and cardboard once warmed and in the after taste. Full creamy body with a subtle carbonation sting. Finishes spicy with an aged presence.
O: A fantastic creation that displays a well balanced beer that has the aged bourbon flare but doesn't overpower the creamy richness. Hats off to New Holland.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. This is a 2013 vintage.
Appearance: Pours a black coffee color, with some hints of brown around the edges and leaves a finger of spritzy tan head that fades almost immediately to nothing.
Smell: Nice, full aroma: roasted malts, licorice, coffee, mild dark chocolate, toasted oak.
Taste: Toasted malts, toasted oak, coffee beans, vanilla, alcohol, hint of dark chocolate. Fairly full flavor, with some good complimenting components that play well with each other (particularly sweet and bitter).
Mouth-feel: Low to medium carbonation with a light to medium body (for a stout). Finishes with a bit of heat.
Overall: I thought this was a decent stout. Nice stout flavors, along with some bourbon barrel influence, make this one an enjoyable brew. A bit thin in the body but pretty well done for what it is.
