Pours a black color with a big pillowy brown head that slowly dissipates leaving a wall of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is of a dark roast with a noticable whiskey and dark fruit scent.

The taste is of a dark roast with smooth caramel and vanilla notes. Dark fruit and hints of coffee. Slight sour note. Quite smooth, not sharp like other barrel aged stouts.

The feel is well bodied but not thick. Semi soft carbonation. Sweet but has a roasted bitter offset. A bit sticky.

Another great barrel aged brew from this brewery. Nice and mellow and smooth.
