3.85/5 rDev -7.7%
For an imperial stout it definitely seems to lean just as brown as it does black. The aroma has a wet wood component to it, husky coconut shell and plenty of alcohol.
Taste is complex, lots going on, chocolate, wood, the inside of the coconut this time, toffee, a twinge of vanilla. Pretty hefty.
This was matured in virgin Czech oak barrels for 2.5 years.
A rich reward.

4.35/5 rDev +4.3%
On-tap at FoBAB 2011. Served in a taster pint. I love Big Woody, so I figured this would probably be worth a ticket.
A - Thin tan foam settles to pretty much nothing. Initially appears black, but reveals some clarity and color when held to the light.
S - Big milk chocolate flavors mingle with caramel, oaky vanilla and coconut. Somewhat simplistic and sweet, but very inviting and with minimal alcohol presence.
T - Taste is fairly similar - melted Hershey's chocolate bars of the milky variety, light caramel, plenty of vanilla and surprisingly little overt wood flavor for something aged this long in a barrel. No booze present.
M - Smooth, medium-full body, low carbonation, and a surprisingly clean finish with minimal barrel tannin presence. Very silky and soft.
D - A really easy drinking barrel-aged stout. I'm surprised how successful the fresh Czech oak was here, as Splinter Black was a huge disappointment for me. Perhaps the Alaskan weather keeps the barrels from expanding and contracting too much. Another winner from Glacier.
