Notes/Commercial Description:
For Remmy's Pappy, we filled barrels from an exceptional Bourbon distillery with our award-winning Imperial Russian Stout and let them steep for many months the transformation result in a beer similar to our original Remy: rich and roasty, with incredible flavors of marshmallow, coconut, and dark fruit, with additional layers of chocolate ganache and rare whiskey goodness. Enjoy!

Appearance- Slightly translucent dark brown pour turns IPA mocha head that fades into a coat that persists through the last swig.

Smell- Fudgy milk chocolate and dark cherries. Amaretto. Bourbon. Cherry cordial candy.

Taste- Follows the nose. Lots of sweet chocolate, cordial cherries, vanilla bourbon sweetness finishes with a boozy spicy rye kick. PVW15 barrels, perhaps? Got even better as it warmed.

Mouthfeel- Based on the reviews and pour, I was expecting this to be thin. It wasn't. Sure, it wasn't the motor oil of BADL or CCB (DBH, LiL, etc), but it wasn't lacking body. It was silky, creamy and perfectly carbed. Floated on the tongue like a velvet pillow of stout.

Overall- Just plain delicious. Very, very well done.
