Poured from a bottle into a tulip. Pours a really sexy, velvety, motor oil black. Vicious and thick per the appearance. Really gorgeous 1 finger head, dark khaki in color, that sits pleasantly on top of the luscious black body of this beer. Lacing drapes the sides of the glass rather nicely.
This beer smells nice, tons of cream and a pronounced Kentucky mash or reminiscent of Jameson Irish whiskey. There is also a nice slight oak scent, and some subtle sweetness that lies in the form of darker fruits.
The taste is near perfect. Tons of roasted bitter malts, predominately chocolate. some chewy raisins, cherry, very well done Kentucky mash, nice oak dryness that bites the tongue rather aggressively. A little bit of a molasses flavor creeps through all of the other flavors and adds to a nice touch of vanilla and some light toffee. Very rich and delectable, and the complexity is there. Awesome beer with a relatively light and creamy mouthfeel.
The 'Most Epic F'in Tasting Ever'
Wow, this had to be rereviewed after trying the 09 vintage. Th taste and mouthfeel on this are superb. So silky smooth, without the slightest trace of alcohol. The wine barrel shows a little bit more in this vintage. The smell is remarkable, with the maple syrup adding very nicely. The roastiness in the taste is awesome. I. NEED. MORE.

'13 vintage @ 12.70%
Taste of molasses and slight syrup, licorice, charred oak. Earthy. Hard to discern the bourbon presence, subtle at best. The body was too thin for what I look for in a big stout like this. Would have wanted a boozier taste up front but that did not happen. A solid barrel aged stout overall.
