Drank this as part of our Central Waters Anniversary tasting (Fourteen Fourteen, Fifteen, Black Gold '13, 16, Black Gold '14, 17)

Very thin mouthfeel for a BB Stout. FourteenFourteen really reminds me of a BB "Old Ale" (similar to Adam From the Wood) with dark fruit and caramel notes. Lingering bitterness on the aftertaste - barrel char/coffee. Very nice beer that has probably seen better days. I would definitely drink this again if I had another one.

Some nice barrel notes on the nose: caramel, tobacco, some char, coconut, and some spicy barrel notes.

Tastes follow suit with plenty of oak from the barrel and the finish lingers much like a spirit. Lots of alcohol feel on the finish, which is surprising after this much time.

Feel is really the downfall of the beer. Too thin to really support all the interesting things happening in this beer. I know the thin mouthfeel of some CW beers has been beaten to death, but it's palpable, when drinking this, how it detracts from this beer for me.

Fun try and opportunity

I got to try this both 2 and 3 year aged. This beer has a special smoothness that only certain beers (like 2013 Black Gold) that take it over the top. Nothing unexpected or different, just a perfect BA stout.
