12 oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours completely opaque black. A small mocha colored head that quickly recedes to a thin ring. Light lacing and legs on the glass.

Nice bourbon aroma, just slightly boozey when compared to most of this style. Some creamy oatmeal at play with perhaps a touch of smoke.

Not huge on bourbon flavor but it's there, more in the finish. More as it warms. Oaky vanilla, smooth oatmeal with traces of charred wood and smoke. Quite nice. Very slight hints of oxidation at times. Some chocolate as well.

Thick creamy mouthfeel. Very smooth and velvety. Full bodied.

A pretty nice barrel aged stout, there are much better examples out there but considering the price and availability I'd drink this again.

Thanks to dogdoc for hooking me up with this one in our recent trade. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Very dark brown, essentially opaque. Forms a thin tan head that fades quickly and low visible carbonation.

S: Oaky vanilla, milder bourbon, some chocolatey malts, sweet dark cacao, and dry woody tannins.

T: Roasted malts, vanilla and cacao in balance, tannins from the oak, some muted bourbon, and mild dark fruits - almost more candied fruit peel. Sweet maltiness with mild roast bitterness and a bit of bourbon burn in the hang.

M: Silky smooth mouthfeel but the body is on the light side. Low alcohol heat, especially for style, and moderate alcohol presence.

O: This was a good beer, but not mind-blowing. It didn't have the chewy, thick mouthfeel I'd expect, and there isn't a whole lot of bourbon flavor or heat. Certainly not a beer for someone who prefers a heavy-handed approach to barrel-aging. I had heard enough good things I had high expectations, and it didn't live up to those. I'm still happy to have tried it, but this falls quite short of the best barrel-aged stouts.
