Bottle shared with stillmatic 2232. Thanks man.

Pours a very dark black, basically opaque, into a Captain Lawrence tulip. Small head that fades away after a while.

Smells roasty, with additional mild flavors of whiskey and chocolate.

Tastes incredible. Subtle, creamy, almost buttery Irish whiskey, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oak, mild roasty bitterness, and love. Normally I wouldn't love a "buttery" flavor in the beer, but I think it is intended, and it adds so much to the beer. It's most likely the Irish whiskey barrel aging. Adds a dimension to barrel aged stouts I've never had before. Love it!

Smooth and silky on the tongue. Great mouthfeel. Very drinkable for the high imperial ABV.

Very recommended!

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

Poured from a 22oz bottle

A - pours dark brown, almost black with a thin, quickly disappearing tan head. No lacing

S - sweet chocolate aroma dominates. Hints of vanilla and oak from the barrel, subtle scent of whiskey.

T - front taste of dark chocolate. Bitterness is well balanced with a sweet okay vanilla from the barrel ageing. Strong/hot alcohol after taste.

M - thinner than your average stout (let alone a BA beer). Lacks that lasting mouth feel of a full bodied stout.

O - This beer has such great potential...a nicely balanced bittersweet dark chocolate flavor...that is hampered by an overly strong alcohol burn. The whiskey barrels add a wonderful vanilla and oak taste. Perhaps it would benefit from some cellar aging.
