Notes/Commercial Description:
You're in for a treat with this one. Brewed with cocoa nibs and raisins and then lovingly aged in rum, sherry, bourbon, brandy and whiskey barrels, this big beer takes on flavors from the spirit and wood of each barrel. The end result is a complex and elegant companion that's right for carefree nights of privilege and excess.

Shared with JLindros

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown nearly black with nice thin mocha head that fades to leave thin wisps. 4.25

S - Aromas are super complex. Loads of sherry, rum, port wine, brandy, bourbon and whiskey. Again, super complex and rich. The barrels here are awesome with great chocolate as well. Wow 4.75

T - Taste is nice chocolate, rather sweet malts and dark fruit, almost chalky chocolate. Lots of port and brandy and sherry, loads of sweetness. Light dark chocolate, the bourbon and whiskey are a bit more subdued, alcohol is hidden quite well. 4.25

M - Mouthfeel is a little sticky and heavy, the sweetness becomes a bit much. 3.75

O - Overall this beer was really interesting and good, the nose is phenomenal with great barrel notes. The taste while good never lives up to it. 4.25

Thanks to rudzud
Nice creamy dark small ish 1/3 finger head, light lacing, decent legs, pretty much pitch black beer.

Nose big roasty dark malt stout, some dark choc fudgey like, fluffy nougat, little creamy mild choc like, little raisin dark fruit, lots of barrel, vanilla and little toasted oak, little rum, faint whisky bourbon like, little brandy candied liquor, choc covered raisin, little port like wine barrel, mild choc covered wafer.

Taste starts sweet and rich, thick creamy lush with bitter tannic roast, big toasted malt and char at least tamed by the barrels. Dark choc fudge, thick little syrupy, chewy nougat, etc. And little tangy like roast. Then barrel, the tangy wine barrel, little port like and brandy, mild rum, more sherry, probably all adding sweetness making it tough to drink. Mild vanilla barrel, very faint whisky, and some dark fruits, sweet candied stone like fruit, raisin, plum, etc. Mild booze, mild heat and booze flavor. Finish drier but sticky sweet syrupy like, more tangy sherry and wine barrels, little barrel flavor, more fudge.

Mouth fuller bod, touch fudgey but also syrupy, carb is a bit too light, bit too syrupy, very mild booze.

Overall still great despite all the flaws.
