Note: 2012 Edition

A: Pours an opaque thick and viscous jet black in color with minimal amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the surface of the beer and some very faint crimson highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy foamy mocha head that reduces to a couple of thick patches of larger bubbles surrounded by a thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of whiskey from the barrel aging over the top of light to moderate aromas of chocolate, coffee bean, and roasted malts. Some lighter notes of dark fruits (specifically plum).

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of roasted malts that is quickly followed by moderate flavors of milk chocolate and coffee. There is a light amount of dark fruit sweetness (plum) and a moderate to strong flavor of whiskey from the barrel aging with hints of oak. Light amounts of bitterness towards the finish which fades pretty quickly.

M: Full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin with some light to moderate amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This is a very enjoyable RIS with the complexity of flavor that includes dark fruits, chocolate, and coffee. The whiskey from the barrel aging nicely complements those flavors rather than dominates. I would definitely recommend this beer, probably the best one from this brewery.
