Subtle and dry brew with hints of that vanilla but not so much of the woodiness you might expect.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Draft. Low carbonation. Dark color. A light vanilla favour, but not overpowering. May not even notice it if I didn?t know. Very little to no oak flavor. Thought it was aged in oak, but only on oak chips. Good stout though, but light wood flavor.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense off white head. Aroma of roast malt, milk chocolate, vanilla smoothness, presumably from the bourbon. Medium body, flavour is much as the aroma, a bit of wood appearing.
