4.09/5 rDev -7.7%
22oz bottle (#046) into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303.
Pours a .5 finger coarse mocha head that dissipates quickly. Beer is thick, viscous, and pitch black. Lacing is spotty and sparse with little cling. Legs are pretty thin too. Not much to look at.
Nose is unmistakably pappy. Chocolate, fudge, cocoa and some dark fruit notes. Very deep and robust. Aromatic too.
Opens Pappy booze. Notes of fudge, chocolate, cocoa, plum, prunes and other dark fruit. Some sweet soy sauce and more dark fruit notes in the middle with a coarse, chocolate, cocoa and roasted malt end. Finishes sweet with a sprinkling of molasses. Aftertaste of booze, chocolate, and leather. Nice complexity.
Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Smooth, slick and warm in the mouth and goes down a bit boozy but pretty robustly. Finishes messy with a lingering, coating aftertaste. Great!
Some say that Pappy Van Winkle Barrels are magic. I don't know about that but if you compare this to the Apple Brandy version of BBVD, it is MILES better. The booziness is smoother, the barrel characteristic works better with the intricate flavors presented here, and the feel is infinitely better (though it is still a touch thin). I'd wager to say this is the best of the bunch.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle # 225.
Appearance - Viscous black. Almost no head. The thinnest of collars.
Smell - Rich caramel. Vanilla and chocolate. Fudgey. Bourbon.
Taste - Fudgy chocolate. Caramel. Vanilla and oak. Lots of oak. Bitter chocolate finish.
Mouthfeel - Bitter and oaky. Medium low carbonation.
Overall - I'm amazed how much of an improvement this is. So much better than the other treatments.

A rock solid, completely memorable and über-enjoyable barrel-aged stout... Appearance is very nice but fairly pedestrian... Aroma is dominated by the pappy van winkle ("pvw"), but it's not overpowering... Taste is dominated by the pvw though it is quite smooth... Mouthfeel is nearly ideal... Overall I like this beer a lot, but the the big black voodoo daddy gets lost in the pvw shuffle a bit...

Appeared much as expected, dark and stouty, black as night, with a half inch of tan head that retained as a ringlet, and laced the glass thinly. Smooth roasty malts in the nose, complimented by rich bourbon and vanilla, cocoa, brown sugar, ash. Nice roasty flavor, smooth bourbon (not very hot at all), vanilla and earthy barrel notes, semi-sweet chocolate, wet tobacco, dark malts. Medium-full body, smooth and robust mouthfeel, with a good blending of all components for an easily drinkable brew.
