Poured into a Duvel Snifter. Pours deep black with a 2 fingered orange-tan head that faded around the halfway point of the pour. Smells fantastic with roasted toffee and cherry hints fading to the bourbon. Mouthfeel is solid, not too harsh like some stouts but feels more smooth. Taste is solid, well balanced with the bourbon being more forward and cherry aftertaste that hangs with you a bit. As many Imperial Stouts are, this one gets better as it warms. Great stout. Wasn't huge on the Saison that was also part of this "A Tale Of Two Barrels" series but the Stout is definitely worth seeking out. Will probably never get to try this one again though based on the extremely low bottle count (200-240 bottles I've heard).

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color capped by an inch of foam; some lacing strands dangle along the glass
Smell: Roasty, with caramel and Bourbon tones along with a hint of cherry
Taste: Roasted malt, caramel and Bourbon flavors on the front end, with a developing hint of cherry in the middle; complex and layered into the finish
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation
Overall: Right up there with the first Blendiculous among the best beers this brewery produces

Couldn't wait any longer, first nice cool evening so I decided to crack this one and give it a whirl. Poured into my Olde Hickory snifter glass with little to no head but extremely black. Smell of faint cherries. First sip, wow, what an extremely balanced beer. Very smooth with a taste of cherries on the back end, even more pronounced as it warms up. Another great beer from Olde Hickory. I realize that there weren't a ton of bottles produced but wow this is one that if you can get your hands on one, go for it.
