500ml bottle (I think) split 2 ways into a wine glass.

Appearance: Dark tan head, good lacing despite the legginess. Black.

Smell: Sharply effervescent and boozy with tons of bourbon and cookie and malt aromas. Vanilla waifer drenched in caramel, some raisin. Distant echo of coffee. Powerful and perfect.

Taste: Even better than it smells. I hate giving out 5s but there is no flaw here. Just amazing. Perfectly melded coffee, infinitely deep bourbon, oak and malt. Tastes like caramel, has a tiny note of soy sauce in the background, some good, raisiny, aromatic espresso... There's a lot more going on here, and it's all amazing.

Mouthfeel: Full side of medium bodied; not really full bodied, but so creamy that it leaves a thickish impression. Neither dry nor sugary finish; just right.

Overall: There's nothing else you could ask for in s barrel aged stout.

Simply put, this is one of the best stouts I have ever tasted. Ridiculously smooth, sweet, flavorful with no sign of the abv. Another winner from Hill Farmstead.

I really quite enjoyed this beer. First open, pour khaki colored head, lovely bourbon notes and subtle coffee. Taste for me was oak, spice from the barrel, bourbon and roastiness of the stout, not a whole lot of coffee though. I found it to be very balanced and well made, one I will always seek out.

Split this with a buddy at room temp this weekend. Very tasty notes of chocolate and slight vanilla and some oak barrel. Boozy but smooth....very impressed with this one!

I'm not a BBA guy but this beer. Mother of god this beer is fantastic. Perfect amount of bourbon. The mouth feel is up there with Triple Shot as a chewy, thick stout. The only knock on this beer is the fact that I can't get more of it. A++ and a must trade for.
