Big bottle into tulip. Served lightly chilled. Off white, thick soft head disipates fairly quickly. Light lacing. Beer is deep black color. Aroma is fairly strong with notes of fruits and honey. Taste is malty and light to medium sweet. Noticable alcohol.Strong notes of oak and vanilla. Some chocolate. Soft, somewhat creamy finish. Full bodied beer. Overall great enjoyable beer. Likely on my list of top 10 barrel aged stouts.

. Pitch blackish, with a ruby fringe. Head of thin off-white. Aroma of light honey, port and cherries. Sugary fruit flavor, with obscene amouns of vanilla sugar, gentle candied bourbon and molasses. The barrel just leaks tremendous amounts of flavor. Fantastic. Delectable. Creamy sugary sweetness. Cool, lucious silkyness that I look for and love in various barrel aged beers. Itís almost condensed to the point of syrup

Smells rich and boozy. Quite a bit of head at first that faded but didnít vanish. Very dark black pour. Thatís got some kick to it. You can really taste the bourbon. Nice and roasty and malty. Very well balanced. Excellent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oak, vanilla character with notes of chocolate on the aroma. Appearance is a very dark brown with a small tan head. Flavor has a strong vanilla character with notes of oak, chocolate, high fruity esters and expresso. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a good tasting bourbon barrel stout. I'd prefer a little less vanilla though.
