4.08/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a midnight, sludgy black with a small tan head that lingers.

Smells of chocolate, sweetness, some oak, vanilla, and just a hint of bourbon.

Taste is up front bready, toast chocolate that goes into a more sweet, bready middle before ending on a slightly oak-whiskey character with a coffee and vanilla finish. This is damned nice actually...really well balanced all around. I HATE when the bourbon character takes over BA beers, but this is spot on in balance.

Full body with low carbonation is right on.

Damned fine BA beer that balances all the flavors nicely. I don't get much rye character necessarily, but this is absolutely worth your money.

3.81/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pitch black, no visible light coming through the beer. Thin tan head that disappears almost immediately

Aroma: Whiskey aromas are dominant. Faint hints of chocolate, maybe some roasted malts. Some noticeable alcohol is present in the nose too.

Taste: this beer starts with whiskey and a gritty rye flavor that competes with chocolate and alcohol for full attention of the palate. The former pair narrowly edges the latter, though it’s a fairly tight contest that suggests a very well balanced beer. As the drink warms, some sweet touches of caramel are faintly detectable.

Mouthfeel: The gritty rye flavors are mitigated by the chocolate malts. A stinging mouthfeel from whiskey and rye is rapidly laid to rest by smooth chocolate and roasty flavors, but makes a brief appearance on the back of the palate. The lingering flavor is light alcohol and chocolate.

Overall, this is a pretty good beer. I’d prefer either: 1) some more full-bodied whiskey flavor; or 2) more malts and less whiskey. The beer seems to be caught in between the two areas, though it’s not necessarily a bad thing. I certainly appreciate this beer for what it’s worth.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

2014 vintage. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with a small tan head that fades and leaves decent lacing and nice retention. The aromas are full of dough along with dark chocolate. Some cocoa malts. Hints of coconut. The bourbon is present. The flavors are on the sweeter side, but there's still a solid bitterness. Lots of oak/wood notes in the flavors. Very earthy. Some black pepper. The rye is there, giving it a subtle spiciness. More chocolate. Some vanilla and caramel is in the mix. Pretty roasty. There's a slight warmth and the alcohol is noticeable, but not in a boozy way. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel feels thin, but it's on the lighter side of full-bodied with active carbonation. This makes a solid sipper.

This is an okay barrel-aged stout, but it's not something that really grabbed my attention. It's a little rough around the edges. It isn't bad, but isn't something that can hang with the big boys, in my opinion.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter

Pours jet black with one finger of dark brown head that fizzles to a thin collar with light lacing. Bright herbal hops are the first aroma I notice. Lots of fresh-ground coffee, cocoa, vanilla, and whiskey as well.

Taste was pretty much as expected. Bittersweet dark chocolate with a hint of dark roast coffee. Smokey vanilla and caramel. Then a fair amount of warming whiskey on the finish. Not overwhelming by any means, but there's no mistaking what this is. The body is a little heavier than medium, but not much. Lightly carbonated and very smooth. Somewhat thick and creamy, coats the mouth well. If this was just a bit heavier and fuller it would be near perfection for me.

Overall I liked it quite a bit. I wouldn't call it "boozy" but it's probably close. It's a sipper for sure, and a darn good one I'd say. I love whiskey and when I'm in the mood for a big strong stout I will definitely look for this one again.
