2013 Vintage corked and caged, poured into a snifter.
A- Pours pitch black with a finger worth of head which quickly fades to the sides of the glass.
S- Chocolate, cocoa, and whiskey on the nose, not much more to speak of here.
T- Starts with chocolate maltiness before the whiskey comes into play. The oak and whiskey takes over the back end of each sip.
M- On the thinner side for an imperial stout, with a nice alcohol warming after each sip.
Not a bad barrel aged imperial stout, but average.

Poured a pitch black color with three fingers of frothy tan head. Average amount of sporadic foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Fantastic retention, settling nicely in the beginning and only losing a little bit on the top the rest of the way.
Smelled rich chocolate, roasted dark chocolate, toffee, caramel, dates, fig, light tobacco?, wet cocoa powder, boozy liquor, rye, whiskey and faint smoky fire. Really grew on me after a few whiffs.
Tasted just as good as the smell. Got toffee, caramel, dark chocolate booziness, thick cocoa powder, light coffee beans, smooth whiskey, plum, dates, figs, hot fudge and roasted nuts.
Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
Just a fantastic beer. Loved every moment of it.

Standard appearance of a big stout, dark brown-black with a finger of tan head, which sank to a collar and laced the glass. In the nose, dark malts, roast and char, tobacco, anise, some neutral booze. Taste of roasty dark malts, coffee, dark chocolate, charred wood, tobacco, black licorice, notes of dark dried fruits and some stiff whiskey / neutral alcohol with a slight burn to it. Body was on the fuller side of medium. Nothing really memorable about this one when stacked up against all the other similar beers of the style, but it was solid overall.
