Served in a snifter at the brewpub.

Following up my volcano roll and mambo roll with one of the more grammatically strangely-named beers I've come across in some time. It's a Belgian-style stout aged in Templeton Rye barrels. It pours a a straight obsidian topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises whiskey, pear, light roasted malts, and wet oak. Trust me, the barrel is the strongest character visible by the nose, and it's not the kindest barrel around. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a hint of chocolate powder, clove, and light brown sugar. The barrel is still the star, but at least some Belgian-ness and stout-ness come through here as well. The body is a solid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, I don't think the barrel program here is quite there yet, though something tells me the base beer wasn't quite strong enough to stand on its own, either.
