this beer is perhaps one of the hardest to come by that i have ever had, and comes to me via both extreme good fortune and more importantly selfless generosity, i am overwhelmingly grateful to be tasting it. i hear they may release this next year if they get label approval or in different packaging, but for now its impossible to get. jet black and majorly viscous in appearance, but unlike many of its huge barreled stout peers, it has a head and some bubbles in it. maybe a quarter inch of chocolate brown foam, sort lived, but present. the nose on this is captivating,, highly refined booze from the single malt scotch whiskey barrel abounds, with roasted barley, espresso, charred oak, and a faint licorice profile all flash in and out. the taste is nonlinear. more of a fluctuating poly-rhythm of deliciousness, beginning with the stout itself, which is very dry, enormously full bodied and silky going down, and holding just enough bitterness from the grain roast without it lingering. some peaty dankness from the scotch, but i get more of the smoke here than the real earthy peat, although both contribute quite a lot to the overall flavor. booze comes on only at the end, despite being prominent in the nose, and its almost welcomed here, reminds me to slow down and sip, and it serves to cut through the density of this, searing it off my teeth and tongue right as its been there long enough, which makes the mouthfeel of this beer up there with the best i have ever had. i think scotch barrels are underused in beer, especially beers like this, i would love to see more of it. i am very thankful for getting to try this one, truly one of the most interesting and well put together big stouts i have ever had. i am hoping it makes it to market before long, the world needs this.

Bottle at Culmination Fest: This beer poured a thick black sludge with a thin brown head. Aroma was strong whiskey burn. Taste was thick sticky with coffee/roasted malts, vanilla, whiskey, and had nice alcohol burn. I wish this was available all the time.
