4.15/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle split with a good friend. Have enjoyed this each time I've drank it, and want to support the local beer. Here goes the review.

A- Fairly aggressive pour into a Voodoo snifter yields a thin, light-brown head. Barely any light getting through. Viscous as can be. Spotty lacing with some nice legs (like my girlfriend).

S- Soft bourbon and rye. Lots of chocolate and an enjoyable roasty aroma that balances this out. Faint presence from the alcohol, though it is not offensively boozy.

T- Charred flavors. Roast with some faint alcohol. A little more bourbon presence on the flavor than there was on the aroma. Faint spiciness from the rye. There's also a bitterness that hangs around throughout the whole drinking process. Really interesting flavors here. Not mind-blowing, but they're still nice.

M- A tad oily for my preference. However, this beer is really smooth. Low carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Quite enjoyable, though far from perfect.

O- A nice offering from a local brewery. I remember enjoying this beer more with some age on it. There are three still left from the four-pack I purchased yesterday. Probably gonna lay these down for awhile and see how they develop. Will probably return for a re-review.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Black, dark as night.

Smell- Malt front, soy, and whiskey.

Taste- some oak, vanilla, and a bit boozey. Nice chocolate notes. Not as sweet as some barrel ages. It is a rye whiskey barrel and you can tell

Mouthfeel- thick, almost milky. Not syrupy like some barrel aged.

Overall- A solid beer, a bit thick for me. Would have liked some more oak and whiskey flavors. Worth a try and a nice price for a barrel aged beer. At 11% it packs a punch. I didn't find this to drinkable because of the thickness.

12 ounce bottle into snifter, 2013 vintage bottle. Pours dense pitch black color with a small tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of green apple, pear, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, toast, toffee, oak, clove, whiskey, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Ok aromas with solid complexity; yeast off notes are quite strong, but don’t completely mask the whole aroma. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light char, rye, vanilla, toast, toffee, oak, whiskey, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, rye, light char, vanilla, toast, toffee, oak, whiskey, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity of dark/roasted malt and whiskey barrel flavors; with a great malt/barrel flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and moderately slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good barrel aged imperial stout. Even though the aromas were flawed, the taste was very nice with good complexity and balance of malt and barrel flavors. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Interesting brew that really had a subtle green apple taste. The ABV was noticeable which was a slight let down. The stout portion of the beer was good but dont expect a massive rye/whiskey bomb. The barrel aging is there but I would not throw this into the upper echelon of BB stouts. The mouthfeel was awesome! if only the beer was better. As the beer warms it becomes much more drinkable and enjoyable. I suggest letting it breath a bit.

Bottom Line: interesting brew.
