look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
The 2009 variation marked best before 7-15-2015, poured into a Portsmouth tulip.
A: It pours a deep dark menacing black that is completely opaque. There is a hefty two finger tan head that hangs on for a long time and leaves a good amount of lacing.
S: The nose is full of oak, whiskey and dark fruits. A tinge of apples cuts through as well with a tip of the hat to the house yeast.
T: A menacingly full bodied profile that just makes a man weep. There is a perfect balance between the barrels and booze. The yeast supplies a brief respite from the heavy flavors with a tinge of fruitiness, amazing to say the least. It finishes on a bitter sweet chocolate note rather dry.
M: Big, tough, and sticky. One of the best mouth feels I have come across.
O: I would rate this one of the better stouts I have tasted. Luckily I dodged infection, and I have some extras to cellar. Seek this one out.

4.28/5 rDev +2.1%

Pours a deep, deep brown, with a sense tan head. Cherry, balsamic, bubblegum, and light hints of dark chocolate roast form the aroma. Highly unusual. Flavor reveals similar tart cherry and vinegar, but roast malt and dark cocoa counter and dominate. The finish is slightly roast bitter. Quite complex! Banana and roasted malt round out the profile. There's a lightly phenolic character that's offputting.

Had on tap at Frisco taphouse Columbia on 5/28/14
A-Midnight black colour, huge two finger dark brown head, that eventually dies down to a ring.
S-Nose is a little bourbon, that gives way to sugary vanilla barrel character.
T-Flavor is similar to the aroma bit not as good
M-Mouthfeel is a little watery but well balanced.
O-Overall a great RIS that I think could be even better with the taste and mouthfeel
Serving type: on-tap
