Nothing exceptional, at least in this company. But tasty. Light, balanced.

Having this midday was probably a mistake. It’s thick. Like molasses. That said, it was still a tasty meal.

Lots of coffee on the nose, and a roast, dry coffee flavor as well. It's not a lot like other barrel aged stouts, in that it's more interested in pushing a great coffee flavor than boozy sweetness, and that's something to appreciate.
#12 release
It was just a small taster pour, but it was a nice reminder of this beer that exceeded my memory of it. Maybe because it was a different coffee. Much drier than Barry.

Basically coffee, with a slight hint of beer.

A well crafted and well balanced imperial stout but I don't have a taste for coffee.
#13 release
Strong coffee on the nose, with a big hit of bourbon. Flavorwise it's very sweet, almost on the edge of too much, with a thin body and decent amounts of everything else - coffee, wood, bourbon, and chocolate. I'd love to try one of the other releases, since they use a different coffee each time.

Wet wood taste. Alcohol burn off with espresso flavor. Thickish.
