A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a short tan head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bourbon are present in the nose along with notes of oak and associated vanilla.
T: Moderate flavors of bourbon from the barrel aging are present in the taste along with notes of dark malts and bits of roasted malts. The oak becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The barrel aging lends some warmth to the finish.
O: This is a nice beer to sip and savor. Although there are some traces of alcohol in the taste it is still rather drinkable.

Dark brown color, almost black, with tan head. Aroma has intense whiskey, caramel but also roasted malt. Taste starts with sweet malt, caramel, fudge, finish has lots of bourbon but also a bitter and roasty aftertaste. Medium to heavy body with low carbonation. Really good one overall, the whiskey/bourbon flavor is just a bit too harsh.

Great-looking stout. Thick legs, some lacing, great head retention. Smell is full of rich chocolate, oak, vanilla, and a hint of smoke. Flavor is similar but with a bit more smoke and bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is the only disappointment: it could use a bit more body. This beer was a nice treat and a great dessert. Hard to believe you can find these on the shelf.
