On tap at the brewery.

The high ABV is partly hidden in this strong ale. Despite the name there's negligible smoke in the aroma or flavor.
The barrel aging does add notes of wood, whisky and vanilla to the stout.
Some chocolate and faint coffee appear as well.

750 mL bottle. Pours inky black. Almost no head. Smells of strong whiskey. Very boozy. Fruity, fudgy, and some licorice. Tastes of chocolate, licorice, dark fruit. Lots of whiskey. Very sweet. Lightly smoky in the back end, but that's about all the smoke I get from it. Heavy and very sweet. It's very sweet, but pretty tasty.

Draft at the source. Dark brown, opaque body with a small beige collar. Aromas include roast, chocolate, oak, charred malt. Robust flavor. Smoke, chocolate, smoke, dark chocolate, dark fruits. Thick body with a hint of molasses. Nicely done.
