Got this set from totoropanda a while back. Cheers for the trade man!

From a 750 into a snifter
Vintage: 2013

APPEARANCE: Identical to the original version. Pours out a transparent dark brown, almost black, yielding a two finger, looser, slightly foamy and crackly, tan head with only half decent retention. Head quickly recedes to a foamy cap. Transparent black body with no carbonation evident. A ring and slight wisp remain but leave no lacing down the glass. Body is a little too transparent for the style and the head too loose and foamy. Average at best.

SMELL: Bourbon, oak, vanilla cream, milk chocolate, sweet toffee and butterscotch on the nose. Bold aromas for sure with lots of nice barrel elements. Similar to the others with perhaps less coconut.

TASTE: Lots of bourbon, oak, vanilla cream and butterscotch up front. More barrel at the swallow with a bold and lingering finish of oak, bourbon, sweet vanilla cream, toffee and butterscotch, some milk chocolate and notes of bitter pure chocolate as balance. Decadent and very enjoyable. Much like the other variants but less coconut perhaps.

PALATE: Medium-thinner body with medium levels of carbonation. Prickly on the palate, not quite smooth, goes down fine with a bit of a scratch and finishes a touch sticky. Some heat lingers.

OVERALL: Again, this is a very tasty and enjoyable barrel aged stout. Like the other variants, the feel is not quite as full and creamy as I’d like for this style, and fixing that up a little would really make this brew world class. The aromas and flavors are top notch, however, as is true for all the variants. This one had a little less coconut and more butterscotch than the other versions, but all three incarnations are so similar that it doesn’t really matter that much. Thanks again totoropanda. These were all really enjoyable.
