great looking brew. pungent notes of oak, booze, caramel on the nose. very sweet tasting - milk chocolate, caramel, toffee, vanilla, boozy bourbon, slightly bitter coffee & roasty malts giving some balance. mouthfeel is about where it should be but nothing exceptional in terms of texture. overall this was a very good barrel aged stout.

This beer pours thick and dark with an amazing brown head that fades after a minute or so but leaves a few globs of lacing behind. The aroma from this is heavenly. Tons of sweet, roasted malt with a massive amount of coffee and dark chocolate all with the most pleasant whiff of bourbon in the background. The taste is exactly the same as the aroma with the roasty twang of the malt being complimented by the coffee and chocolate and the bourbon coming in to bring it all together. This is as good as any BBA coffee stout I have had. It is a great beer.
