Appearance is rich black, with a tan head that fades with nice lacing.

Nose is roasted and sweet, with syrupy vanilla and malt.

Flavor is tart and not very complex. Nicely roasted, but not a lot of flavor. Vanilla is subtle, which is nice.

Mouthfeel is very drinkable with good carbonation. Clean finish.

Overall, this is OK. You would expect more flavor from a barrel stout, but the flavors it does have are nicely placed.
