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.
