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

2014 vintage, poured into a snifter

A- pours pitch black with a small foamy khaki colored head that reduces to just a small ring, leaving no lace behind

S- lots of spicy rye aroma up front gives some peppery notes and then mixes with barrel juice and a hint of toasted oak. Smoky chocolate malt with a hint of charcoal, more spicy rye on the close

T- the rye is noticeable first on the flavor as well, spicy & peppery. Big flavors of milk chocolate & cocoa kick in with some caramel notes as well. The barrel notes are subtle, but noticeable with just a hint of rye whisky in the finish

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a slightly warming finish, abv is hidden pretty well

O- very subtle on the bourbon barrel, but the base stout is quite good, a nice sipper

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...

4.8/5  rDev +21.5%

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
