3.58/5 rDev -21.3%
Pour is mostly black with a small amount of tight caramel head. Nose is big, wood and bourbon up front with rich fudgy malt. Taste is a bit sweeter, lots of bourbon up front, a fair amount of roasted malt come through mid palate as the fudge takes hold with notes of vanilla and some bourbon and heat through the finish. Body finishes a bit thin with low carbonation and a bit of a slick feel.

12 oz bottle, thanks Steve.
Pours a dark, viscous near black with a minimal khaki head in a ring of bubbles, no lace, etc. Nose of marshmallow, vanilla, light roast, caramel, dark fruit. A little rubbing alcohol cones through as well on the nose as well. Medium thick, smooth body, low carb and a silky hot finish. Flavor follows nose with a hot, roasty base and a vanilla, brown sugar and molasses sweet booziness. Tasty, hot, nothing too special.

Slick and boozy mouthfeel. Spicy chocolate flavors. This would probably be a little fudgy from the age if it had more body. The smell is rich and chocolatey. I can appreciate the time this beer took, but it honestly doesn't add much more than the 1414 or 15 already had other than the status of limited bottles. I wouldn't break the bank trading for this, but it's certainly a tasty beer in and of itself.

thanks to TATURBO for the share!
poured into tulip glass.
Appearance: black body with thin white ring. Very evident boozy legs on the side of the glass.
Smell: Spicy bourbon. Boatloads of coconut. Honestly the most coconut that I have ever smelled in a barrel aged stout; and yes... more coconut than BCBS Prop. This beer smells way better than BCBS Prop, no doubt. Hint of oak and cinnamon.
Taste: Sweet and robust; hardcore barrel forward stout! Spicy bourbon. Tons of coconut. Bitter bakers cocoa. Hint of cola. Decent amount of oak too. Tastes a bit hot yet, but this will only get better!
Mouthfeel: almost a full bodied beer with low carbonation levels. Moderately boozey, this is a sipping beer for sure!
Overall: Intense barrel notes in both aroma and flavor profile. This beer needs to mellow a little bit, but man alive... CW made another amazing BA stout! Highly recommended!

Poured from the bottle into a goblet. You can pick up the alcohol in the nose as soon as you open the bottle. The beer is sweet and a bit hot with strong dark fruit notes that remind me of a dessert wine. I'm really enjoying the bourbon even if it is a bit hot. The finish is sweet and warm and sticks with you.

Reviewed from notes. Twelve ounce bottle shared by Jeremy - thanks. Dated 10-12-13.
A: Pours a pale (light) black with a thin 1/16" tan head which clings to the rim and leaves a few spots of lace.
N: Heavy bourbon up front with dark fruits, vanilla, dark chocolate and caramel overtones.
T: Boozy bourbon, fruity, vanilla, sweet malts.
M: Full body and light carbonation. Thick and chewy, bourbon finish.
O: Another treat. Not expecting the boozy quality after aging. Enjoyed very much.
