4.69/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Pours black with a one finger khaki colored head that drops fairly quickly. The liquid it leaves behind is thick and menacing. I like.

S: A good amount of bourbon in here, coupled with a ton of dark, rich espresso. Vanilla, toffee, caramel, oak laced with bourbon that almost stings the nostrils, charred wood and tobacco. Get in me.

T: Damn. I've been waiting a long time to finally try the BA IRS and Stone busts this out alongside it? Holy moly. Bourbon upfront with a nice hint of burnt caramel and brown sugar. A ton of espresso in the middle laced with a nice dash of pure bourbon. Finish brings some charred wood, burnt espresso, burnt brownies and some fudge. Dry, roasty and absolutely loaded with espresso on the finish. Crazy that there would be this much espresso left after a year in the barrel. A fantastic beer.

4.55/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Corked and caged 500 ml bottle from trade, 2014 Series Batch No. 04 (2013 Espresso RIS). Pours pitch black with a half finger mocha head. Aroma of nice vanilla bourbon tones, chocolate, some coffee roast, oak, alcohol. Flavor is vanilla, bourbon, caramel, oak, chocolate, some spicy coffee notes, lingering char and bourbon on the palate. Really nice, smooth, yum. Some brief oxidization, more so than Fyodor's but not enough to take away from things and intermingled with what is left of the espresso. A beautiful beer.aybe a bit hot and this would probably improve if laid down for a little bit. Body is thick with medium low carbonation. A beautiful beer. My only complaint is that there isn't much coffee/espresso here beyond some muted earthy tones. This was released about 5 months ago so maybe that has faded. Doesn't matter though. An awesome barrel aged stout.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep black body. Nearly inky. Small khaki head. Thin collar and a few wisps.

Smell - The coffee is very rich. Bourbon. Less intense oak than Fyodor's. Fudgy chocolate.

Taste - Sweet fudge. Rich coffee blends in. Bourbon. Dries out as the barrel sets in. Very oaky. Oak and bitter chocolate linger.

Mouthfeel - Thick. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The coffee smooths out the rough spots of Fyodor's.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

The beer is opaque and near black with a thin beige head that rapidly fades to nil. The aroma offers big roast and char character. Barrel presence is there too, with nice oak and booze scents. Espresso and general coffee character is subtle, much more so than expected. Coffee emerges more in the flavor, complementing the beer rather than dominating it. Thick on the palate with low carbonation. Viscous and slick. Elegant and delicious.
