4.54/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a stone RIS glass
it is pretty dark and little lacing and very slight small head to it
smell is overpowering amazing barrel characteristic along with coconut and chocolate
taste is similar smooth chocolate slight heat from barrel on the back end
not as much coconut as in the smell but it melds nicely with all the other flavors
very intense complex beer could definitely drink another bottle
solid beer much recommended

4.38/5  rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Had this after regulars Remy.

Appearance - Black with a nice khaki head. Medium collar. Slight ruby tinges at the edge.

Smell - Even sharper bourbon than the Heaven Hill Remy. Doesn't seem as boozy. More chocolate.

Taste - Again the bourbon is distinct. It's a separate flavor from the beer itself. Chocolate less caramel and cola. More straightforward.

Mouthfeel - Arguably more bourbon but less booze. Medium heavy.

Overall - The barrel is a little nicer than regular. Both are incredible beers.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, coconut, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, and marshmallow flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great barrel aged presence in the aroma and flavor.

4.89/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a Bruery snifter.

Pours a dark brown and looks among the best. Minimal head that fades.

Aroma is a bit boozy with the Buffalo Trace influence mending with sweet caramel and toffee notes.

Taste is smooth. Among the best BA stouts I've ever had. Good amount of barrel but it blends well into a caramel, sweet, marshmallow goodness.

Not too syrupy and slight carbonation.

Maybe one of the best BA Stouts ever made. Wow. This is amazing.

4.7/5  rDev -0.2%

Thanks to wowcoolman for opening this a few hours after the release. Jazz at el cerrito did a fantastic job with the small release.

A- opaque dark with a chestnut collar, typical of a good barrel aged stout, some nice head that's minimal but dissipates moderately quick

S - complex, a little boozey with excellent Carmel heavy sweet nose, lots of great charateristics from the buffalo trace barrel, opens nicely

T- lots of barrel here, but surprisingly smooth probably due to the quality of buffalo trace. Typical Stout goodness allows as a base for the huge barrel flavor. Carmel, dark sweetness, long finish

M- medium to heavy with a sweetness that isn't quite syrupy. Surprisingly carbonated (not a lot) for the length of time in barrel.

O- very good big beer that stands up to a tasting format. Drinking a bottle to yourself gets to the levels of rare or ba kopi. Super good but definitely a huge wonderful beer

Green waxed bottle purchased El Cerrito Liquor. Dark, inky, silky, luxurious, a little oily- lacing clusters into globules. Very viscous. Nose is fresh caramel, marshmallow, Bourbon, some roasted malts and a little soy. Very well integrated taste echoing flavors mentioned in the smell, with a sumptuous full mouthfeel. Incredibly smooth and slick. Well done Jazz and Taps; looking forward to enjoying my second bottle.
