750ml, caged and corked Burgundian bottle. Thanks be to doktorzee for grabbing this for me in Vegas last month. Nice to see my workout today is wrestling the cork out of this one, sheesh.

This beer pours a pretty solid ebony, with prominent basal cherry cola highlights, and a roiling tower of frothy, foamy, and rocky tan head, which leaves a thorough array of chunky chain-link fence lace around the glass as it slowly settles to an attractive whipped-cream cap.

It smells of bittersweet chocolate, roasted bready caramel, sour milk-laced coffee, natural vanilla, candied sugar floss, a bit of barrel stave wooden astringency, Nordic black licorice, and earthy, leafy, and slightly perfumed hops. The taste is really bittersweet cocoa and lactic acid-heavy medium-roast chain restaurant coffee, a more Twizzlers-friendly licorice character, gritty toasted caramel malt, reserved vanillan oak barrel notes, a removed Bourbon booziness, middling wet tobacco, dry black fruit - think stale fig Newtons and that bag of raisins that your wife forgot to seal back up - and more understated earthy, leafy hops.

The bubbles are a bit frizzy up front, but settle quickly to a dull hum soon enough, the body a bit on the light side of medium weight, and rather tight in its seemingly unassailed smoothness. It all finishes off-dry, the lingering chocolate, caramel malt, and milky essences not yet devoid of sweetness, despite the onslaught of coffee, bare wood, and alcohol.

This seems to be what happens when you drop a porter into some American whisky barrels - the base beer's heady (I'm assuming, here) attributes, while not exactly disappearing, still have to endure a large dose of the ol' thinning barrel treatment. Yeah, that's the flipside of the whisky-cask aging paradigm - if the big caramel, vanilla, and restrained oak don't honour their paychecks by doing the song and dance, we're left in the former fix. Not a bad thing, per se, but a reduced one, all the same.

Poured an almost black body with gushing head that dies quick with an aroma of roasted malts that have a hint of chocolate. The beer is smooth and a little oaky with the vanilla coming in real good and sweet, minimal bourbon notes and chocolate that are balanced with roasted (not smoked) malts and there is a slight slickness to the beer. ABV hidden and this is an easy sipper that hits the spot.

750ml poured into a Stone Snifter. Bottled on 11/11/13/.

Looks close to BBA when stout when poured with just a slight bit thinner texture. Nothing to amazing here with the smell. Same with the taste - seems like somthing is lacking. Very subtle hints of vanilla, almost no bourbon and barrel, some char and roast.

750ml Bottle
Caged/Corked
Bottled On: 11/04/13

Pours a very nice dark brown/black color, very nice carbonation, with a really awesome thick creamy two-finger plus light tan head, which leaves some very nice thick sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, slightly smokey/roasty notes, slight vanilla, chocolate, toffee. The taste is very nice as well, malty, slightly smokey/roasty with lots of dark stuff. Medium body. Overall a very nice brew, glad I finally got a chance to check it out.
