Light on the barrel, however this is an otherwise nice stout. Scents of mocha, licorice, and sweetness lead to a full creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of vanilla, breakfast blend, cocoa, give way to a bit of booze (actually leans toward more toward vodka than whiskey) with a dry oaky finish. Would revisit...

A: Very dark in color soft carbonation

S: Aged in rye whiskey barrels but it smells like a good stout on the nose with roasted coffee and chocolate then some vanilla smells

T: smooth rich chocolate with some liquor taste I really would have guessed bourbon very smooth

M: Very smooth and surprisingly creamy for a barrel aged beers just an excellent mouthfeel

O : fairly impressed here, it's got a very smooth mouthfeel no heat the barrel is right there but not in your face it's an astonishingly well rounded BA stout

$ 3.99/12 oz bottle at Vintage estates in Boardman, OH
Vintage 2014 bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma – none
Head small (< 1 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing good – narrow rings and stalactites of small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of cheap rye whiskey, no roasted malt, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Stomach burns.
Palate full, creamy, soft carbonation

To me this seems much like drinking cheap rye straight up. The only redeeming characteristics are the appearance and palate, which, incidentally, are the only stout features. I don’t know about any rebellion, but it is certainly revolting.
