750ml waxed bottle. Snifter glass. Dark black body, oily legs, one finger mocha head, good retention. Big whiskey presence; slightly smoky bourbon and spicy rye combine with a big milk chocolate and cocoa presence on the base stout providing a nice sweetness. Earthy hops and oak rounds things out. The whiskey is heavy on this one, befitting the extended aging time, and the complexity is very nice. The vanilla seems conspicuously absent, and I think it is covered up by the barrels a fair amount. I don't get that marshmallowy mouthfeel that I was hoping for. That being said, it's a nice big stout with a ton of barrel without it being overwhelming- the base stout holds up well to the extended barrel-aging time, however the vanilla is lacking on this one. If you are looking for the likes of BCBVS/VR or BVDL where you are drinking liquid marshmallows, you'll be a bit disappointed even though the beer itself is still a very excellent barrel aged stout. Judging from all the other reviews, perhaps the vanilla is less prevalent in the bottled edition than it was on draft. I'll never know.
