1700 official beer and holy lord a monsters. Poured near room temp into a 12 oz DFH Snulip, not sure when it was bottled. Pours near pitch black with a 2 finger sticky light brown head that leaves very little lace and disappears really fast into a ring if bubbles. 4

Smell is boozy, vanilla, dark chocolate, roasty coffee, char, and did I mention bourbon? 4

Taste follows alcohol hits your palate first, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and a ton of boozy bourbon very aggressive but not crazy over the top. 4

Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy with plenty of carbonation for its huge size, a tad dry, and at 18.4% goes down pretty easy, but acomplex sipper. 4

Overall this is a very nice Giant Stout, that I feel I could of ages longer and may have become even better, well who cares. Thank you @jzeilinger for being such a generous and incredible beer bud. Someday we shall meet and geek out and talk sports, but you are one of the best in the hobby. 4

Revisited 11/22/18

A: Poured into a snifter, dark brown color with slight head. After a few sips, somewhat of a limited lacing.
S: Coffee, chocolate and vanilla aroma.
T: The coffee taste was rich, as was the chocolate flavor, the vanilla was subtle but definitely stood out. The oak aging adds character, that I felt was lacking in previous editions of the WWS, making this one so much better.
M: The body was solid, but not overly thick, just very well balanced and to my preference.
O: The beer is very well balanced, much better than previous editions and the high alcohol content gives a powerful wallop!
