Bottle into a Duck Rabbit snifter. High hopes for this one.

Pours an opaque black with tiny, quickly nonexistent head except for a thin rim. Good appearance.

Smell is complex. Lots of chocolate and raspberry, with some floral honey (actual honey, not just sugar). A bit of currant and fig. The barrel is buried on the nose. Some booziness is present, but not overwhelming in any way.

Taste is where this one shines. Some tart raspberry up front with a backing of honey sweetness. Lots of cocoa in this one. The oak is present but subtle - not bourbony or overwhelming in any way. Fairly sweet as far as imperial stouts go but very balanced. Finish is dry and primarily oak with bitter chocolate. Subtle as far as big barrel-aged imperial stouts go but delicious.

Mouthfeel is a touch thin but still good. Carbonation is perfect, though. The alcohol is totally absent from the taste, only showing up in the nose, which is fairly impressive. Easy drinking for its power.

Overall this is a very, very good bal stout. Definitely worth seeking out and I'm very glad I have some more bottles of it. I think with a year or two on it this will be extremely good, with just that much more blending of flavors and less booze in the nose. Another great stout from Olde Hickory.
