Had at the brewpub while on a recent trip to Cali. Served from bottle into a goblet. Poured pitch black with a one finger tan head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, dark chocolate, wood, and alcohol. The flavor was of roasted malt, dark chocolate, alcohol, and caramel. It had a heavy feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this brew wasn't that bad. It was still a little hot for my palate if I'm honest. It could probably improve sitting in the cellar for a little while to allow the alcohol burn to mellow out a bit. Worth trying if you are at the brewpub or if you want a good brew to tick.

Big thank you to ObeMaltKinobee for this killer extra.
Appearance. Pours pretty much black with half a finger of light tan head.
Smell. Big dark chocolate, a little molasses, rum and old barrel wood, vanilla and bourbon and just a slight hint of plastic or maybe pvc. Smells rich, boozy and big.
Taste. Sweet dark chocolate, some nice barrel wood and a drop of bourbon. There's a lingering woody, bourbon-vanilla taste that's pretty darn nice.
Mouthfeel. Full body, just below medium soft and smooth carbonation. There's a nice boozy tingle that stays on the tongue but doesn't quite have the throat and tummy warmth one would expect from such a big abv.
Overall. The beauty of this beer is in the taste. I know that sounds obvious, but the look and smell just don't quite live up to the taste and it does taste mighty nice.

Little 375 provided by Buckeyeboy for an impromptu mid-week tasting. Brownish head rises and drops pretty quickly... spotty lacing.
Nose is big and boozy... bourbon soaked tootsie rolls.. surprisingly good.
Flavor mirrors the nose with some background dark malt... long finish. Very rich and decadent.
Body is a bit light probably accentuated by the massive ABV.
Thanks Jeremy... Surprised I have not heard of this gem.

Thanks to mrhirshybar for the bottle
Pours deep brown to black with almost no head or lacing.
Aroma definitely tells you there's a barrel involved here. A little bit of licorice and dark fruits with some roast and a lot of booze.
Dark fruits in the up front in the flavor. Some good roasted malt helps balance out the sweetness although it's still maybe a tad too sweet. Barrel character is again high and comes out more as it warms. Definitely bourbon kiss and it finishes slightly hot.
Medium plus mouthfeel with medium carb level. Definitely boozy, but that's a good thing in a stout.
Pretty solid beer. I prefer my barrel aged stuff a bit hot, so if heat isn't your thing, sit on this a while. This one is definitely hot, but fairly well integrated so it's still good.

*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.
