This is banging. Waves of cocoa, dates / raisins, vanilla marshmallow. Woodford probably adds to the creamy, butterscotch and honey tones of the beer ... but the lighter notes of rye, smoke don't really come through.

Up there with the best of the imperial stouts, ba or otherwise - bears a strong resemblance to an incredible beer that I don't think gets its due, Hangar 24s Immelmans.
