Poured from a 750ml bottle into a stemmed snifter. Pours a dark black with little to no head. The nose is sweet, chocolate and vanilla, bourbon. It's as sweet as it smells. More and more vanilla as it warms good notes of chocolate. The alcohol is well hidden. Rides the line between balance and cloying well. Silky and smooth, full bodied. Top notch.

poured from a 750mL bottle into a snifter. pours pitch black. no head. no bubbles. smells like bourbon, chocolate and marshmallow fluff. wonderful look and nose on this one. taste has plenty of bourbon and vanilla / marshmallow. almost too much on the vanilla for my taste. finishes with a cake frosting sweetness that while totally artificial is just not my thing. mouthfeel is incredible. super smooth and easy drinking for 15%. this is a step up from D11 for me but i’m just not that into straight vanilla in stouts. still, a very good barrel-aged stout.
