As far as a non-adjunct stout is concerned, Barrel-aged Density is a fantastic brew. What I took to be hops at first is likely the barrel - which is my broken palate at fault, obviously. The barrel presence relaxes significantly as it warms - there's still a woodiness, but it's subdued. The bourbon notes are quite present throughout the taste and mouth feel, making it warm and quite pleasant - it imparts that nice boozy heat in your throat and chest. Lovely!

I corked this overnight and came back to it the following day - it had smoothed out further, surprisingly, and was tasting even better. It's quite decent overall!
