Thanks to raveskdr for sharing this beer. 2011 vintage.

Beer pours a dark brown/black with a thin tan head with moderate lacing. Smells of chocolate with some bourbon and oak. Taste follows the aroma - a nice mix of the three, but not overwhelmed by any of the flavors. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is a nice bourbon barrel stout, but there's nothing to make it stand out. I'm a little disappointed given the hype it's gotten.
