Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice darker brown hue with a thin head that fades to leave thin wisps.

S - Aromas of potent barrel and bourbon, light barrel woody notes, good chocolate notes as well, nice light vanilla as well

T - Taste is similar to the nose, very nice barrel notes, good vanilla. Good chocolate, nice warming bourbon with nice lightly sweet malts. Really good.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly, carbonated,a bit thin.

O - Overall this was a rather solid barrel aged stout, very nice base beer with good barrel notes . Well done.

Big fluffy creamy 1/2 finger mocha head that fades fairly quickly, pitch black beer with nice legs.

Nose huge dark choc cocoa fudge, mild roasted coffee and char, nutty roast malt, nice but light toasted oak and bourbon barrel, little mineral content, little vanilla late.

Taste huge dark choc fudge, cocoa, bitter roast, little fudgey cocoa with light vanilla barrel, faint caramel and nutty coffee, into mild spicy earthy hops, mild bourbon notes with the toasted oak, little light on the malt tough.

Mouth is thicker bod but a little thinner, decent carb, very light booze.

Overall pretty nice but lacking a bit especially on the body and base malt, and barrel.
