Poured from the can into a snifter glass.

A nearly absolute pitch black body color completely opaque. Faint tan head, that makes about a finger and settles with a whispy top and a simple pencil thin collar. Excellent dark and big looking stout.

Aroma continues some very good notes. Hints of thick dark chocolate mixing with some nice oaky tones. Faint touches of some whiskey like fruity quality in the mix, along with some light touches of coffee on the nose.

Palate has some real impressive flavors. A faint light touching mouthfeel, with hints of dark chocolate and much roastier quality. Wood shavings and some rich oak quality in the flavor, but also a boozy heat that comes off more like brandy. Fruity hot a bit, with a faint touch of raspberry, but also gets a bit to fussel like in alcohol heat.

Even after 9 months in the barrel, some of the thickness and rich quality is still not getting through. However, there's some excellent roast and classic chocolate flavors and barrel notes to be had.

Had on tap. Mark this one down in the distinct category. The wheated barrel really comes through on the finish of the taste and upfront in the smell. Still has dark chocolate, molasses, bourbon, a ton of wood, but the more subtle ba stout flavors are swallowed up. It tastes like 15.5%, very boozy. The wheated graininess is felt in the body, but that could be in my head given the overpowering flavor
