Bottled 6/6/13 and aged 18 months before bottling so this bottle was aged about 36 months before consumption.
This is one of the best if not the best barrel aged stout I ever had.
Starts off with some cinnamon and light ginger followed by the oak barrel character as well as chocolate and some light vanilla notes.
Finishes with a subtle heat in the chest from the chili peppers but not overly hot.
Blown away 5/5

Pour is black with brown edges. Nose is sweet, dark malt, berry sweetness, a hint of roast. Taste has more sweetness, a good bit of burning whiskey, strong hot spice in the finish. Malts are rich and big, body is full with strong carb. Overly sweet on the finish. Heat is strong as well from the spice on the finish.

Poured and shared amongst friends SBS with Red Wine, poured into a SP stem

A - Dark as night here, almost completely opaque. Small dark tan foam head that recedes back into the glass. This one has some legs on it.

S - Smell is complex here, you can definitely smell the whiskey coming through on this followed by oak, vanilla, dark chocolate. You can definitely taste the base here as there is still head on the nose as well as notes of cinnamon. Good stuff

T - Starts off with a nice hit from the whiskey and oak as well as vanilla notes. Then come the chocolate carmelly notes. The finish is where the base shines, cinnamon and peppers all day. The heat lingers just long enough and leaves you satisfied.

M - Not quite as thick as I expected, but this is no reason to dock this beer. We'll say medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Creamy and goes down smooth.

O - This beat out Red Wine Cake, although where red wine lacks in tastes, makes up for it in it's complexity. I would definitely seek this out if you are willing to dish out the ammo. This is a fantastic beer and resides somewhere within my top 10 beer that I have had.
