This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Ahoy! This bourbon barrel-aged sea monster of a stout has emerged form the depths of our barrel cellar after summering quietly for the past year. Enjoy the swirling typhoon of chocolate, dark fruit, and smooth bourbon flavors while wearing an eyepatch and feeding your most colorful parrot.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 1/9/2014.

Appearance - Inky black. Decent khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Kinda fruity. Dark chocolate. Roasty.

Taste - Sharp bourbon. Oak is intense. Dark roasted malts. Coffee bitterness. Hint of dark fruits, but nothing like the prune flavor of the base.

Mouthfeel - Very bitter and oaky. Boozy. Sluggish.

Overall - It's not as prune-y, but it's still overly bitter and oaky. Not an easy beer to drink.

Bottle shared by Curran tonight.

Pours a dark oily black, with a small quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like bourbon, molasses, chocolate, honey, and booze.

This is very, very sweet, but luckily very very tasty. The bourbon flavor brings to mind that idea of boozy molasses and honey, there's also a good amount of sweet syrupy chocolate and booze.

This is medium bodied, with a sweet, sugary, and syrupy mouthfeel, and a very low level of carbonation, making it a slow sipper.

Not the best barrel aged stout ever, but still tasty nonetheless.

Thanks easyread, can't thank you enough for your generosity!

this is fan-tastic. Pashel turned me onto this guy last year with the regular version. The BA version is even better! perserves all of the great flavors with an added layer of vanilla and bourbon. wb knows how to barrel age with the best of them.
ive had a ton of baltic ba beers, thus ranks near the top!
