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.

Big thanks to dujayhawk for sending this bottle! Reviewed from notes. 2013 vintage. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass.

A: Essentially black, opaque, with a small amount of visible carbonation and forms a thin tan head that dissipates to spotty foam fairly quickly.

S: Chocolate and vanilla, bourbon and oak, and deep roasted malts. Not overly sweet.

T: Bourbon, oak, vanilla and cacao, dry oak tannins with a touch of barrel char, dark fruits, sherry, and roasted malts that are rich and a little bitter. Bittersweet cacao and roasted malts accompany the bourbon into the hang.

M: Medium body, but the mouthfeel is a little on the light side for style. Not overly hot at all, especially for style. Carbonation sensation is fairly low, which lends itself in the smooth mouthfeel, but it's not at all flat.

O: This is a good beer - put together very well. It doesn't have the thick, nearly viscous, mouthfeel that the best Imperial Stouts have, but it's not distractingly lacking. I really enjoyed the barrel and bourbon flavor level - certainly present, but at a level that lets the other flavors play a part int he palate, rather than completely overpowering. I don't have the palate to separate all of the liquors that gave the barrels for this beer, and bourbon was the most easily recognized for me. Regardless, recommended for sure.

2013 Bottle

A- Pours a near black with a tan head of about a finger. Retention of a ring around the edge. Sits really still in the glass, giving the indication of hefty Impy here.

S- Nose picks up the aroma from about a foot away from the glass. Huge dose of caramel, bourbon, raisins, vanilla, molasses, and wood barrel. The tone has been set...and it means business.

T- Dark fruits lead the way before introducing me to the sugary sweet malt that is roasted and toasted goodness. Sherry and bourbon sets in late.

M- full, viscous but not overly thick and chewy. Low carb. Cloying initially, but settles in well. A bit of warmth here and there.

O- A serious stout here. Reminds me a lot of the Prairie 2013 Noir with a hint more dark fruit character. This brewery has been hit or miss for me, but this one lands squarely on the bull's-eye.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Acquired as an extra in a trade!!

A- Pours a pitch black, oily body with a 2-3 finger light mocha colored head that reduces slowly and leaves blotchy lacing.

S- Absolutely delectable and inviting .. Strong french vanilla, oak, butterscotch, chocolate, molasses, sweet bourbon, dark fruits and sherry. This smells great.

T- Sweet vanilla beans, milk chocolate, molasses, burnt sugar, oak notes upfront. Coffee and brandy notes on the finish. Roasty, charred aftertaste. Wonderful.

M- Thick, rich, creamy. Low carbonation.

This BA stout can play with the big boys. Seek it out.
