Vintage 2014

Pours a dark brown color with ruby edges. The thin layer of beige head quickly dissipates into oblivion. The nose has roasted notes but it is quite difficult to detect the rye whiskey. This offering is full bodied and the flavor profile has both roasted notes and the much anticipated rye whiskey essence. The whiskey presence is soft and merges nicely with the roasted bitterness on the finish.

This is well done and enjoyable, but it does not hold up to the very best barrel-aged stouts out there. Then again, I did not have to wait in line and deal with a one or two bottle limit to purchase this beer. So, there’s that…

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, some whiskey. Taste is whiskey, alcohol, some chocolate, roasted malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a bit different but an enjoyable beer.

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.

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.
