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!

Pour was black as night. 1 finger khaki head that lasted just a while. Very very nice on the nose. Lots of vanilla and marshmallow. MILK CHOCOLATE!!! Taste is wonderful like the inside of a Lindor chocolate truffle!!!! Wow blown away by the taste on this one. Very very well done!!! You still get the vanilla and marshmallow on the back end but not as strong as the nose!! Mouth feel was good a lil lighter than I prefer but I always compare mouth feel to bourbon county!! Overall outstanding brew.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black and viscous pour. Very small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Rich bourbon. Oak. Vanilla. Sweet molasses. Caramel. Dark fruits and some milk chocolate.

Taste - Dark fruits and molasses are the predominant flavors. Bourbon blends nicely. Doesn't have a sharp bourbon alcohol flavor. Lots of oak in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation and pretty sweet. Boozy, too. Big beer.

Overall - Another Remy variant that is damn near perfect. This is spectacular.

Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip glass

A- jet black, like oil pouring from the bottle. The head is deep thick and a dark tan. The head dissipates into a pretty thick lace around the edges.

S- the first thing that hits me is dry dark chocolate. Then there is a sweet rich bourbon that completely takes over.

T- follows the nose so well. The chocolate is so dry and sticks to your throat in a good way. The bourbon is instense. Definitely the main driver of this beer. Super sweet with touches of vanilla and caramel and oak. Very nice flavor. Very subtle roast flavor as well.

M- medium to heavy body. Definitely not as think as I expected it to be.

O - nothing negative about this beer at all. If they put a touch of real coffee in this beer it would be a perfect 5.
