4.4/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep dark brown with some reddish hues. Nice soft light brown head. Lot of caramel, vanilla and chocolate tones. Smells awesome. WOW! The palate is amazing. Chocolate, vanilla, smels like coffee ice cream with chocolate sauce. The oaky tannins do show up in the nose. Like a red wine aged in new oak barrels. Creamy, rich finish. Mouthfeel is rich and coating, with a slightly bitter, charred wood finish. Much better than some other barrel aged beers where all you taste is the bourbon and alcohol. Very well done and a good balance of the stout and the oak. Hope this is available in a regular basis, as I would love to get some more of this. Try this one for sure!

4.61/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Pours jet black with about 1 finger of tan head which is retains for a few minutes.

Smell: Roasted nuts, malt and chocolate. A hint of bourbon/whiskey, but very little.

Taste: The barrel aging definitely shows up in the flavor. Tasting also some roasted malts

Feel: Smooth and velvety. Little carbonation.

Overall: Not what I was expecting, but still a good overall beer. I would definitely get this again.
