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!

2013 bottle. Thanks Tim. Poured into a CCB snifter 7/19/2014.

Beer #1,000, Review #700.

A- Opaque pitch black body, with a one finger mocha head that is quite dense. Good retention. Thin streaks of lacing stick to the glass intermittently.

S- Huge chocolate fudge. Roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, dark fruits. Complex nose that is packed full of all the aromas you would ever want from a BA stout. Some coconut along with the vanilla makes me think liquid marshmallows. Reminds me a lot of BCBS and to an extent, Rare. Gets even better as it warms up.

F- Roast malts, chocolate fudge, oak, bourbon. Similar to the nose, but the vanilla, dark fruits and chocolate fudge character seem to recede a bit in the background to the bourbon. The bourbon flavours on the finish are very clean and flavourful without getting too dominant. Quite well-done.

M- I have to agree with previous reviewers that for the amazing nose and complex flavours this beer delivers, the mouthfeel really hinders it's execution. It's on the thinner side of medium in body and is not very substantial on the tongue. Lower in carbonation as expected. Finish is chocolate fudge bourbon, slightly smoky and oaky but sweet.

O- This beer has all the markings of a top-shelf BCBS variant as far as the nose and flavour profile goes, but it lacks the vaunted thick, chewy mouthfeel. Definitely worth getting a bottle of if you've not tried it before, but there are BA stouts out there that offer a more complete drinking experience.

Poured into a Hunahpu's snifter and shared with a couple guys. Was excited to tick this one and thanks to Tim for making this trade happen.

A - Appearance is a dark pour with a half finger mocha foam head that recedes back into the glass. Does not pour out as thick as I would like

S - Smell is awesome here, tons of bourbon up front followed by the chocolate and marshmallow smells that everyone else describes here. These smells really come out as you let it warm

T - Taste follows the nose with the dominate taste right now being the Pappy flavors coming through which are delightful. As it warms the chocolate marshmallow sweetness comes out and it improves the beer dramatically.

M - This is my only knock on the beer. I was wanting this to be thick and chewy with a full body, but it ended it being on the thin side with some weird carbonation feeling going on in there. Tim mentioned some variation, will re-review after I open my second bottle.

O - Overall the taste was exactly what I was expecting, marshmallows soaked in bourbon, but the mouthfeel makes this beer a little off-putting. Still worth going after for the taste and smell aspect alone. Fingers crossed for my other bottle being thick.
