look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

poured a deep dark color with a coffee creme brown head. Nose is coffee,bourbon, oak, chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is everything in the nose with hints of dark fruits, molasses and some balancing hop bitterness. Hints of soy sauce as well. The aftertaste is full and round, creamy even. The best i ever had in a stout. Mouthfeel is thick creamy and smooth. Overall: even better than the regular, the best out there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

25 cLass bottle poured into a wine taster. 2006 bottle.

Appearance - Viscous black. Small khaki head. Very thin collar.

Smell - Wow. Very oaky. Deep dark chocolate. Roasty coffee. A little bit of smoke. A green woody aroma. Almost like cedar.

Taste - Incredible. Intense roasted malt. Coffee. Bitter chocolate. Smokey flavor. Licorice. A little bit sweet. Sherry. Woody. It's not really oak, again more of a cedar. But not quite.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Exceptionally smooth and easy to drink.

Overall - This got more complex and enjoyable as it warmed. Unbelievable beer.

I don't review often. But when I do, it's Alexandria Whaelz. HUGE thanks to Bill A for sharing this. Drank along side the non barreled version. Bottle from 2007.

A - Very dark brown, bordering on completely black. Medium tan head that lingers for awhile. I should have used a different glass, I'm an idiot.

S - Not a ton going on here. A good amount of roast, some oaky vanilla notes that come in secondary. As the bottle warmed up, I got the "Burgundy pepper" as described below.

T - Strap in. The roast is all up front until an amazing mocha blast in the mid palate. The ending is some vanilla and barrel. There is a slight earthy pepper type of thing going on during the finish. The only time I have experienced something similar is in a handful of other barrel aged beers and in aged red Burgundy's. It's awesome though.

M - Rich and creamy without bogging down the beer at all. Intensely drinkable for the barrel and style and ABV. Zero alcohol on the back end.

O - This was amazing. It's been one of my top wants for years and I wasn't sure I'd ever get a chance to try it. To be able to do it back to back with the regular version really showcases what the barrel does to this beer. It truly is a shame that this beer is so incredibly limited and expensive. I will forever be indebted to Bill for allowing me to try this with him!
