Imperial stout that is a bit more grainy and spicy than usual thanks to the use of oat. The columbus hops counterbalance the sweetness of the roasted malt.

Not bad, but not as good as the BA version, most of the times i preffer the non barrel aged ones better, but in this case the barrel aging gives this beer an extra dimmension, this has everything the BA version has except for a bit more of that warm smooth flavour that the BA version does have.
Anyway a nice beer, and indeed very drinkable !

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black beer with a huge, dense and light brown head. The nose is roasted, some tar, the hops are fresh and citrusfruity, some salt liquirice and fruits. Taste is strongly roasted, almost burned, coffee, some smoke, medium and citrusfruity bitterness. Medium bodied, at the beginning too high carbonation, that makes diffucult to taste the beer, more balanced after a couple of swirls, but high carbonation, anyway. The nice aroma, but the taste is too burned and simple with too high carbonation, and not even the nice hoppyness cannot totally save this IS. Anyway, the good beer.
