650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Black with no head. A few discrete bubbles on the surface and a stray wisp.

Smell - Oaky with some bourbon. Not too intense. Deep chocolate.

Taste - Fudgy. Lots of dark chocolate to this stout. Fresh bourbon flavor. Two distinct flavors that I like. Could be a bit better integrated, though. Lends an unrefined alcohol flavor and a hot finish.

Mouthfeel - The barrel heat lasts long after the stout. Boozy for its size with medium carbonation.

Overall - Hot barrel, but the stout stands up pretty well.
