2012 vintage, very excited to finally try a fresh bottle of this.
A- Black, nice light-colored head.
S- Bourbon. Honestly the aroma is pretty much all bourbon, but there is a hint of coffee in there and vanilla from the barrel notes.
T- Amazing. So smooth, everything is incredibly balanced. Main flavors are vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon. I also tasted coffee and dark chocolate in the aftertaste. I love how much the barrel-aging process has changed the base beer.
M- Very smooth, could be a little bit thicker but it drinks extremely well.
O- Just an unbelievable beer. Barrel-aged stouts are my favorite style and I can't honestly say I've had any that are better than this. It doesn't exhibit any new flavors than others that I've had, but it's so well balanced. This definitely lives up to the hype. Awesome stuff.
