3.88/5  rDev -18%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Oily pitch black body capped by a thin lingering head. Leggy and viscous. Nose is heavy on soy sauce, molasses and bourbon. Not much in the way of heat. The palate is similar; the barrel brings a huge but mellow caramel/vanilla bourbon character that's undeniably excellent, but the base beer is underwhelming, reminiscent of soy sauce and burnt sugar. Pretty cloying, this seems sweeter than Black Tuesday despite being significantly lower ABV.

Bottle shared by Kristina at Zwanze Day. Served in the provided Cantillon glass.

A - Thin tan foam settles to a partial ring and a few wispy patches on top; no lacing. Very dark brown body that isn't quite black.

S - Massive coconut, vanilla, and oak, with complementary notes of dark fruit, chocolate and caramel. I love the bourbon character here, as it's mellow and vaguely port-like; just like Pappy tends to be.

T - The taste is also quite nice, albeit with more malt character and less pronounced barrel character. Very sweet, approaching Black Tuesday levels, but with a lingering oak and smoke kiss in the finish. Doesn't reach the highs of the aroma, but still quite excellent.

M - Not as big as I anticipated, particularly considering the higher ABV; think this has been thinned out with the extended time in the barrel, although I don't remember the regular Black Magick being all that hefty either. Medium-full body that is quite clingy and viscous. Low carbonation, with tons of lingering stickiness. Not overly boozy, although some heat definitely creeps in as it warms up.

D - I thought this was quite excellent. One of the few barrel-aged stouts I've had in recent memory that has lived up to the hype. A number of us split the 12oz bottle so it's a definite sipper, but it's one I'd love to drink again.

12oz, Bottle #676, Bottle date 1/18/13
Mini snifter

A: Pours pitch black. Head disappears into a collar around the edges of the glass. Alcohol feet.

S: Vanilla. Caramel. Roasted malts. Dark chocolate. Smooth notes in the nose. There is just something about good bourbon barrels.

T: Dark fruit and soy. Dark chocolate and roasted malts. Vanilla. Burnt sugar. Caramel. Intermingles beautifully.

M: Full bodied. Chewy.
