4.25/5 rDev -4.3%

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.

Many thanks to beerisheaven, the Premier of Traders, for this bottle, sent during the fifty-ninth trade or so of our relationship. 22 oz. red-waxed bottle #313, dated 12-14-12, split with my wife.
The pour is dead black with limited carbonation that leaves the vicinity in short order. Nose clocks in more big black that pappy which is cool, since the base beer kicks Boromir-level ass. Lovely fudge frosting is prominent along with great notes of vanilla from the barrel & a robust level of sweet, dark malts. Yes, I will take a sip, thank you.
Big Black Voodoo Daddy- Pappy Van Winkle has now been upgraded to Aragorn. Lovely bourbon & vanilla up-front, there no denying where this beer has been. Post-barrel there is a gorgeous set of malts, sweetening & flirtatious, along with an almost spicy note that I associate with rye barrels. Belgian-quality chocolate arrives to caress my memories & tongue, sharp roast. But the barrel wins out in the end. This is smoother than an airbrushed ass on the cover of Vogue, just sublime. And disappearing. Fast. Faster than the IPA I had earlier.
Voodoo has hit a rich vein of gold with their Barrel Room Collection & this lovely brew is no exception. Smooth, rich, gorgeously crafted, this is an excellent beer that's within sniffing distance of elite status.
