Split with rudzud and threelions. Finally got this beast to the table.

Pours a crazy nice foamy fluffy 1 finger head, leaves messy lacing in the slow fade, nice legs, super dark murky brown color almost black.

Nose is phenomenal, so much awesome malts, aged big dark malts, creamy brown malts, sweety candy and sugar, molasses, brown sugar, etc. Nice barrel and whisky notes, even little rye, nice vanilla and oak barrel, hint raisin and candied fruit, caramel fluffy nougat, very nice soft aged malt.

Taste is ridiculous, amazing malts, soft aged old ale malts, sweet candy bit awesome, sweet syrupy brown sugar molasses, toffee, etc, but all aged nicely, coffee syrup, little roast and toffee, very mild booze notes, hint cocoa. Then barrel, toasty vanilla oak, mild whisky but hard to tell rye, even a little nutty. Chewy nougat too. Finish is sweet syrupy, chewy malts, great barrel rounding, nice whisky, good aged soft malt, very tasty.

Mouth is super heavy bod, nice carb, very little booze.

Overall awesome!

Split with JLindros and shared with Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown hue with a one finger head that fades to leave light lacing.

S - Aromas of sweet malts, caramel, alcohol hidden well did not smell like 15%. Very nice rye whiskey too!

T - Taste is caramel, vanilla, malty sweetness, awesome rye barrel, molasses, light dark fruit. Heavy rolo, toffee and nice sweet malts. Delicious caramel sweetness and barrel notes.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, to be expected, not that syrupy.

O - Overall this beer was very tasty, great sweetness, awesome barrel notes, good rye, very sweet, delicious.
