3.36/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Bottled on 7/10/13
Poured into a standard tulip glass

Appearance: (4)
Pours an impenetrable pitch black with a light cocoa, finger and half tall head that quickly recedes to a half finger's height, leaving zero lacing, but plenty of alcohol legs behind.

Aroma: (3.75)
Waves of bitter sweet baker's chocolate greet your nostrils with a snappy, herbal hoppiness interwoven. Subtle, but sweet molasses and caramel play a nice supporting role in the chocolate forward, malty aroma. The syrupy molasses has a unique nuttiness about it which makes me think of pecans that were added in the brewing process of this gigantic stout. There is a faint vanilla and coconut character from the bourbon barrel. For being 13%, the alcohol is pretty well hidden. As the beer warms in it's glass, some of the roasted malts which I have been looking for surface.

Taste: (3.25)
Sweet, creamy notes of chocolate coats your tongue right away, with subtle biting notes of espresso and more of that distinctly nutty molasses that was found in the nose. Finishes dry with lingering notes of cocoa powder, baker's chocolate, herbal hops and rye, with a light streak of vanilla and coconut from the bourbon barrel. Unfortunately, a lot of the more lush notes of the malt bill are completely covered up by the huge, spicy alcohol character that almost completely pervades the beer.

Mouthfeel:
Heavy bodied with massive viscosity and moderate to high carbonation. Oily with alcohol.

Overall: (3.25)
I had high hopes for this; rye, wheat, pecans AND barrel aged? This had to be great. For the most part it was pretty damn good, until the spicy, tongue scalding alcohol took over the flavor profile, completely covering up the roasty, chocolate-y goodness that bourbon barrel aged stouts can be. I'm not going to give up hope because I really think this beer will only improve with some age on it. .
