First glass served on-tap at the bottle release! This batch is aged in W.L. Weller barells. Served a deep opaque black with a thin diminishing head. Aroma is a bit of oak in front of roasted malts and smooth cocoa. The taste is a wonderful blend of oak and Bourbon in front of bitter cocoa and roasted malts. The beer is very smooth, and easy drinking with its alcohol quite well hidden, bit it is still a real sipper. While I was hoping this release would be Pappy Van Winkle aged, this is almost as good, hands down one the best beers I've ever had.

Serving type: on-tap

2011 bottle, 6 of 26. Shared with a few buddies on my deck on the eve of Independence Day.

A: Looks great! Black with a nice tan head.

S: mmm - The perfect balance of Bourbon and Chocolate.

T: Delicious! The taste follows the nose. Chocolatey Bourbon goodness.

M: Full bodied but not as thick as some other RIS I have had.

O: This is a great beer. I'm glad I had the opportunity to taste it. Some of the other reviews I've read on here mention slight oxidation. There was no oxidation with this bottle.
