Pours nicely, although the head seems short lived. The aroma is mild, roasty and chocolatey. The mouthfeel has always been too weak, so the extra aging doesn’t help; the beer qualities are not bad but muffled; the barrel aging character is probably more evident; slightly boozy in the final.
Still drinkable, not a product for aging though.

Black color, small brown head. Mild aroma of chocolate and roasted malts, with a touch of vanilla. Strong body, but also strong alcohol feeling; powerful roasted malt flavor, and less dark chocolate than my last tasting; the barrel presence is minimal, and it has some liquorice; the sweetness level is rather low for an average Imperial Stout, so it should please that category of consumers. The dryness and roastiness increase the alcohol feeling.
Very good, solid, a bit too boozy maybe.

Black color, seems oily initially, but it forms a nice brownish and compact head, medium sized. Interesting aroma, with the expected vanilla and also with a lot of creamy nuances. It’s full bodied, with round mouthfeel; the flavor of roasted malts is milder than expected, while the flavor of dark chocolate is more present but not as rich; it has instead a quite evident character of cream and of tobacco; and some Bourbon vanilla; correct bitterness level. The final is apparently shorter than usual and carries less of the flavor components.
Maybe it’s missing a vibe, and depth, but it’s already quite good.
