Corked and caged 750 ml poured into a large wine glass after a bit of a struggle to remove the cork. Finally a pop gives me relief as I had flat beer on my mind. Pours black with deep ruby highlights and with an inch or so or resilient tan foam. In fact it drinks like a nitro. infused beer

Aroma of sporadic roast notes amid a prevalance of vanilla and spice. No real barrel influence aside from perhaps some vanilla contribution on the nose initially, adding a bit with warming. The taste however does indeed bring forth more obvious barrel notes from the get go, with a touch of bourbon and some charred oak flavors. Also offers some pleasant roasted character and a hint of dark cherry, yet finishes rather dry and lightly bitter. ABV is well hidden well into full warming temps. Subtle yet complex on the tongue.

Feel varies through the temperature spectrum but is solid through and through yet a bit too dry to really kill it here. Overall an enjoyable brew limited only by it's dry smokiness in that a less robust yeast might raise the bar notably. Warming outgasses most vanilla and barrel notes on the aroma and to a lesser degree on the taste...

Note: Bottled 11/07/2014

Nice roasty malt, big oak, hints of chocolate, subtle bitterness at finish. Excellent for the price at TJ's.
