Remy is a travel buddy whose life, at times, has rivaled that of the world's most interesting men -- free-spirited, adventurous, social, and with a penchant for fast women, whiskey, and beer: the perfect inspiration for something truly special. We filled eight Heaven Hill bourbon barrels with our award-winning Imperial Russian Stout and let them sleep for eight months. The transformation resulted in a beer that is rich and roasty, with incredible flavors of marshmallow, coconut, and dark chocolate. We hope you enjoy this very limited release -- that it inspires you to try something new and that it makes you a little more interesting as well!

A very solid BA beer. The nose is awesome. Sweet and filled with bourbon. If anything it is a little thin and finishes a little too hot but overall the vanilla marshmallow taste is great and balances the chocolate. (If there was more coffee it would be a perfect white chocolate mocha beer).

*This was the 2012 release that was aged in Heaven Hill barrels, not the 2013 release that was actually aged in Rittenhouse Rye barrels*

12 oz. bottle poured into a mini snifter

A - Nearly pitch black with only a small amount of tan head

S - A little bit of booze with lots of burnt malt and dark chocolate aromas

T - More booze, but extremely smooth after two years in the bottle. Hints of bourbon and vanilla. A strong cocoa flavor that is reminiscent of baker's chocolate. The perfect amount of sweetness balanced by the bitter chocolate notes

M - Great amount of body for the style. Pretty chewy with little carbonation

O - Wow, this was one tasty beer. One of the best BA stouts we have had. It was really smooth and extremely flavorful without being too sweet or boozy. Great job, Victor! A huge thanks to Joel for sharing this one.

doing a side by side with Pappy Remy and Remy(2013)!

poured into TG snifter.

Appearance: black bodied beer with thick cap of tan head. looks identical to pappy remy. booze legs and minimal staining.

Smell: slight roast and nutty notes. milk chocolates, brown sugar and tobacco. hint of black licorice and slight oxidation.

Taste: sweet tobacco and dry cocoa with milk chocolate for good measure. brown sugar and caramel. hint of black licorice. vanilla and bourbon are mellow.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with almost moderate carbonation levels. this has a better feel that Pappy Remy. Maybe a little bit more carbonation made this feel thicker than pappy remy. not a boozey as pappy remy either.

Overall: Remy is still a really nice BA stout. those heaven hills barrels are always a great choice for barrel aging; they are a staple of barrel aging.

Poured from a 12 oz glass. acquired in a trade

A- Pours a deep brown, slightly opaque body with a small off white head that reduces to a thin layer of foam.

S- Sharp whiskey, french vanilla, caramel, some booze and a plastic-like smell.

T- Lots of milk chocolate, vanilla, caramel-raisin, whiskey, coffee-char aftertaste.

M- Medium-heavy mouthfeel, low carbonation

A solid barrel aged stout. Very well done.
