Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a thin brown head that dissipates to sparse patches with slight lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, cocoa, molasses, dry caramel and a touch of coffee. Flavor is dark toasted malt with moderate char, coffee, light cocoa, dry caramel. Char and coffee finish with a bit of woody oak. Medium bodied with light creaminess; solid carbonation despite the nearly still pour. Similar to the base stout, but less chocolate in the flavor, leaning more to coffee and malt char; thinner body with light oakiness from the barrel. I really liked the base Dark Olympus, but although this is good, it seems simpler than the unbarreled version. The body of the base was more robust. I think I'd get the regular version next time.

375ml corked/caged bottle served in a Red Hook sample glass. Bought it a couple weeks ago at the brewery.

Pours brown/black with little head. Smell is vanilla, oak, booze, a little anise. Lots of vanilla.

Taste is hot, boozy, clear bourbon note, still lots of vanilla, sweetness beats the roast bitterness and it comes across a little like a chocolate shake.

Mouthfeel is velvet, thick and sticky. Overall, pretty solid BA stout. Barrel might be slightly too pronounced for my taste, but not out of bounds.
