4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer with a thin brown head. Molasses and bourbon barrel nose. Flavors of vanilla, bourbon, wet oak, burnt caramel, over ripe fruit, and molasses. This is a nice barrel addition to what seems a strong imperial stout.

Bottle - Holy boozy batman, but with a minute mellows a tad to dark chocolate, coconut and bourbon. Jet brown with a decent light brown head. Lots of chocolate, coconut and more boozy bourbon notes. The taste is actually much milder than the nose, thankfully. Sweet and pleasant.

2014 vintage. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt, chocolate and oak. The flavor is similar. I get the notes from the aroma plus some barrel aged characteristics including vanilla, maple and oak. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
