Let me preface my review by stating that i'm not a gigantic fan of barrel aged beers. The woody notes that most barrel aged beers doesn't lend well to the styles that I love. I decided to sample this beer last night during Intuition's new release party after a friend lended me a taste and i'm damn glad that I did. It was served up in a brandy snifter right off the tap.

A: Settles inky-wet in the glass with a soft porcini mushroom brown foam halo around the inner rim of the glass.

S: Perfect choice of serving vessil. The scent is reminiscent of fine burbon, coffee and star anise. You just want to keep smelling it gently while you sip.

T: The taste is rich without being dense, you will get the burbon barrel flavorings up front with enough hops to counter the alcohol. Liquorice and toffee kick the tongue and then fade to a vanilla on the back end. It's like the most delicious boilermaker i've ever had.

M: The alcohol level and whiskey taste caution you to sip this one like a single malt whiskey, yet it's safe to enjoy freely. Finishes dry and peppery/spicy.

O: Absolutely outstanding. Could possibly be the best stout i've ever had. I bought two growlers of it. :)

On tap at the brewery. Poured into a snifter. Small head, low retention. Black body. Soapy lacing, small bubbles. Aroma dominated by coffee, slight vanilla and molasses and just a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous. Very thick. Taste has nice coffee, touch of chocolate and vanilla, lots of roasted malts. Plenty of complexity but I think more layers will be added to the mix with additional aging in the bottle. Alcohol is well hidden. Deep. Dark. Mysterious. Perfect name, spectacular beer.

Huge thanks to dsauter for sending this extra beer! Thanks Danny!

2012 vintage; purple waxed bomber poured into tulip glass.

reviewed from noted 4/5/2013.

Appearance: black bodied beer with 1 finger of tan colored head. Head drops down to thin cap.

Smell: Chocolate and oak. Cinnamon and bourbon. Black licorice.

Taste: Hint of bourbon sweetness upfront. Chocolately. Mild char and smoke notes. Mild oak and a hint of fruity yeast and dark fruit notes.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low end of moderate carbonation. Really smooth. drinks its ABV. No booziness or heat noted from the ABV. So drinkable for a barrel aged stout.

Overall: This is a really great beer from Intuition Ale Works. I was really impressed with the king street stout and I believe this is the barrel aged version of king street stout. Love how smooth this beer is. Flavorful, balanced, complex beer; great beer from florida!

On tap at underdark release party in Jacksonville, FL. beer was served in an Underdark snifter. Pours an opaque black and has a beautiful, sweet smell with hints of oak wood and vanilla. A great local beer that is truly putting Jacksonville on the map, as far as craft beer is concerned.
