From my perspective, this appeared dark as night. An opaque midnight black color. A thin, yet cream-like head of tan foam stays solidly in place on the beer from the first to the last sip.
The aroma is pungent, rich and oaky. Pleasant nutty spiciness and a Kaluha and cream like nose. Coffee liqueur, vanilla and a dark fermented fruity alcohol. Very interesting aroma. Inviting and seductive.
The taste is rich with roasted nutty flavors. The alcohol peeks through, but on the whole, is well hidden. The texture and body is a tad light. I think a little more body would be an improvement. Not to say that this isnt smooth it is. Smooth and mellow. Finishes with a nice oak accent and a touch of roasted bitter sharpness. The bourbon barrel aging is surely evident. Which is good. It doesnt leave you guessing what that elusive flavor you might be detecting is. I think its just perfect in this beer. Like a fine bourbon, aging has taken their Old Heathen stout and turned it into something extraordinary. A great beer.
