A - Pours a very dark brown body that is completely opaque. Dark khaki/light brown head that is thick and about a quarter inch tall. Made up of mostly small bubbles, but there are some larger ones on the surface in the middle.

S - Vanilla and oak are very up front, but don't seem overbearing. Milk chocolate and a bit of caramel. Some anise.

T - Starts off with deep flavors of chocolate and some espresso. Works into some nice flavors from the barrel aging that don't overpower the flavor of the beer itself, which too many brews can. Very little bourbon here, rather more vanilla and deep oakiness. Some anise and light caramel shoot in for a second, followed by a light bitter finish.

M - Thick and full bodied. Smooth and a touch creamy.

Overall - Very well balanced barrel aged stout here. No one aspect overpowers the beer. The flavors and complexity here just don't make it stand out from the every increasing BA Imperial Stout crowd.
