Sexy looking ba stout. Pours viscous and sits still in the glass. Creamy caramel 1 finger head. Aromas of whiskey, baker's chocolate, or wait...dark chocolate. Flavor comes through as straight up roasted malts and rye whiskey. Barrel presence is strong. Not overly complex, but fairly smooth. Booze isn't all that hidden as a fair amount of warmth comes at you, but the feel is nice and creamy.
Overall, pleased to try it. I wouldn't actively seek it out though. Barrel overpowers the base imo

Roasty, Creamy, Thick. Complex, not too boozy. Nice Whisky barrel character though could have used a tad more barrel component. Overall an amazing barrel aged stout...one of the best I have tried in a long time.

Split between small snifters.

Poured black with almost no head. Smell is roasted malt with some chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, some oak, some coffee. Body is full with a smooth mouthfeel.

A - Pours a very dark brown with a one-finger creamy tan head. Tons of heavy lacing.

S - Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and dark chocolate.

T - The taste is bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. The is a light smokiness in the finish.

M - Full bodied with low carbonation. The mouthfeel is extremely smooth and
creamy. No alcohol burn whatsoever.

O - Greenbush hit this one out of the park. The flavors are extremely well balanced with a near perfect mouthfeel. A bit pricey but worth it.

Cheers, Liam!!

A. Pours a very deep dark brown, looks black and opaque in the glass with a finger of light brown head that fades to a skim.

S. Whiskey and a touch of chocolate syrup and oak, a little bit of licorice too.

T. Dark chocolate and whiskey, some dark coffee and well roasted malts. Dry cocoa in the finish.

M. Medium+ body, medium (maybe+ ?) carbonation.

O. A bit to thin and a bit too much carbonation ...small complaints. Good stuff overall.
