"BBE (?)" Dec. 14

Poured from the 11.2 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Black with clear ruby highlights when seen through light. Two inch tall tan head receded to fairly even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Booze.

t: Very smooth texture with whiskey flavor, as expected, different from their Rum Cask Aged. The whiskey flavor dominates aroma and taste, so that there is no smoky or little if any coffee or chocolate stout flavor in evidence. Throat burn despite the moderate 7.4% ABV.

m: Moderate, very silky smooth.

o: An excellent variety of I&G cask aged brews. Their Rum Cask Aged is one of my top go-to's for flavor when I want beer that tastes like liquor. This one would not be very far behind, in fact might be ahead due to its silky mouthfeel.

11.2 ounce bottle, stamp on it says BBE Dec 14. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. The head sticks around a while, and there's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, Irish whiskey, and some dark fruit and coffee. It tastes like roasted malt, Irish whiskey, bittersweet chocolate, oak/wood, coffee, dark fruit (cherries), peat, and vanilla. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, it's not heavy on the Irish whiskey and I think it meshes well with the stout. I'd buy this again. $11.99 a 4-pack.
