2008 vintage opened by ipa247.

A: Pours a near black color with raisin highlights beneath a thin dark brown head.
S: Smooth notes of vanilla, light woody barrel and oak scents, and a bite of bourbon and creamy chocolate.
T: Crazy smooth flavors of raisins, marshmallows, chocolate and vanilla with a very mild hint of warm bourbon in the finish. The aftertaste is sweet and full of raisins.
M: Full thick body, incredibly soft mouthfeel with soft carbonation, and very integrated and smooth alcohol that is a just a tiny bit warming.
O: I have a bottle of 2011 vintage that I was thinking about opening but after having this I can see it’s worth the wait. An overall thick and chewy stout.

EDIT: 2011 is an infected mess. Sour cherries galore. Damn you.
