Had this on tap during Craft Beer Week.

Came in a snifer midnight black with a small khaki head. Aromas of chocolate, oak, slight vanilla, slight burnt coffee were coming from the glass. Couldn't wait for it to warm up for my first sip and the taste followed the nose except the wood while pronounced blended easily into the background and added a wonderful aspect to the beer. When the stout warmed that is where it entered a whole new level. It was viscous, smooth, and you do not detect any alcohol. I don't know if this will ever be made and distributed on a regular basis but if I am lucky enough to come across this beer again I would happily order it again.

Reviewing the Oak Aged Ten Fidy from Oskar Blues Brewing Company out of Colorado.

Score: 92

Growler pour served in a Hunahpu's snifter and enjoyed on 02/24/13 to celebrate the Oscars. Review is from iPhone notes. Thank you cosmicevan for the hookup. Sadly, I lost all but one photo from this tasting.

Appearance: Black as night. Thin head off pour totally settles. Nice lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Dark chocolate, oak and light hops. A little roast and biscuity malt too. Hint of coffee? 4/5

Taste: Tastes like Expedition Stout sans 90% of the hoppiness plus oak. More oak and light vanilla as it warms up. Nice chocolate flavor. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is damn near perfect. Full bodied, low carbonation. Viscous and sticky. Dry finish. 5/5

Overall: Better than the barrel aged versions of Ten Fidy (Jim Beam and Wild Turkey aged), but not as good as the regular ol' stuff fresh.

Cost: Unknown.
