the barrel aged version of this is apparently something splendid and worthy of the top beers in the world designation. the base beer is really nice too, although not what i expected. sometimes i see top beers biased to region, like the people here cant get the stuff the bruery does, so this becomes the best stout out there, or the toppling goliath people, or the central waters region, they all think their own beers are the best, so they get jacked up on here. fine with me. this one to me comes across a lot more like a black ipa than it does a stout, really interesting dryness and hop intensity not normally found in the style. its got a salted cocoa sort of flavor to it on the malt, and only a little bit of front end bitterness. the hops are heavy in the finish, pine family and aggressive. it wipes out some of the richness and nuance built in the grain profile, but i like that its so different. im not sure how the barrel would effect this, sweet whiskey and the hops, they must fade out a fair bit in that edition, or else its entirely unique to itself. fuller medium body but not at all sludgy and heavy, which i like. impressive overall, but its hard to picture the acclaimed barrel aged edition from the base beer in this instance.
