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.

So many good things to say about this beer. Poured into snifter. Got about 1 inch head with aggresive pour. Very dark brown, with some light around the edges at times. Smells like rum soaked raisins. Also picked up some of the malt early on. Great taste! Dark fruits, and get a little of the rum. Flavor coats the mouth, and a pleasant warming after each sip. A bit on the sweeter side for some, but I enjoyed this immensely. At $12-15 for a 4 pack, the value of this beer is off the chart. I am dissapointed I did not get more .

Wow, super complex. The nose is sweet, dark fruits and vanilla. At the front of the mouth, more sweetness from the rum, sherry, and brandy barrels but slowly gets into the warm bourbon and whiskey notes in the middle and on the back end. Slight tannic quality from the sherry as well as a "Raisinette" chocolate covered raisin note. Very complex and well put together brew.

Pours a creamy looking dark brown, almost black, with a foamy head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells pretty sweet, I can pick out brandy and wine, with some vanilla, and caramelized sugar.

It seems like this might not have needed to have been aged in 5 different barrels. I can only really pick out sherry and brandy flavors here- no rum, bourbon, or whisky. I do get a little bit of oak, but lots of sweet syrupy molasses and sugar flavors, with some vanilla. It's a lot of sweet flavors, making it better that I only had a 6 oz pour.

This is thick bodied, with a syrupy sweet mouthfeel, and a lower level of carbonation. It's drinkable for a few oz but the syrupyness and the sweet flavors get to be a bit much.

This is a well-crafted BA stout, but it's a little excessive- it doesn't need to be aged in 5 different barrels, really.
