Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a 12 fl oz can on November 12, 2018. A small batch variant of 2018 Evasion conditioned in bourbon barrels with cocoa nibs and vanilla.

2018 can, obtained yesterday at Taxman's Death & Taxes Day release festival. Pours dark but not totally opaque or overly thick for 13%, with a half-finger of quickly-dissipating head. The nose is a nice mix of bold, BBA stout and lighter, Belgian esters. The cocoa stands out more than the vanilla in this variant, but both are certainly present. Clove, banana, and marshmallow soften the flavor profile, but the barrel-ageing still contributes some oak and boozy heat on occasional sips. The overall impression is big and aggressive, with a balance of spice and sweetness; it definitely drinks like a high-ABV barrel-aged stout, rather than trying to hide the booze.
