4.2/5 rDev -5.6%
Pours dark brown. Looks a bit murky but it could just be the color. Light beige head. Small bubbles. Dissipating head. Lots of brown sugar, roast and chocolate in the nose. Well blended bourbon character. Lots more good barrel character in the taste. Starts sweet but dries out well as the wood comes in. Solid roast and chocolate flavors. Smooth mouthfeel. Very good beer.

4.09/5 rDev -8.1%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Not a lot of head, and what it has settles quickly. Not quite black. Collar of khaki foam.
Smell - Hot bourbon. Chocolate and molasses. Mostly bourbon from the barrel and less of a true barrel character.
Taste - Very intense bourbon. The barrel isn't as influential as the whiskey itself. Chocolate and a little less molasses than the nose implied. Hot finish and finally some oak appears in the back.
Mouthfeel - Barrel hot. Low carbonation. Thin for its size. Boozy, but it's barrel booze not so much beer booze.
Overall - It's good, but not as amazing as I'd hoped. Like many other Central Waters stouts, it comes off a bit thin.
