Pours black. No head. Aroma is chocolate and some coffee.

Taste is sweet cheap bourbon before anything. Chocolate less prevalent, but there as a bakers bitter flavor. Some raisin, wood, anise. Sticky and almost sickly. Booze. The wine and bourbon seems to me to be overtaking the leather and char aspects of this Stout.

Fake sweetener chocolate and a Russell Stover raspberry flavor makes me unhappy.

Zip Line Barrel-Aged Chocolate Double Stout, 11.5% ABV, 35 IBU. Pours moderately thick, somewhat dark but not fully opaque, nose is mostly chocolate and a bit of whiskey, palate is mostly chocolate, not much whiskey/alcohol taste, no bitterness. I just had the non-barrel-aged version of this, and they are both pretty good. Too bad this is bomber only - I'd keep this stocked if it were in 12oz - so I'll stock up on the non-barrel-aged and get the barrel aged occasionally.
