Had on tap at the brewery--served into a tulip
Appearance: black in color, 1 inch head, opaque, low carbonation
Smell: roasted malt, chocolate, and whiskey
Taste: dark and sweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, whiskey, then a big dose of oak
Mouthfeel: heavy bodied, medium-low carbonation,chewy, sweet with light bitterness due to the oaking
Overall: This beer is phenomenal. I think it may be my new favorite RIS and is certainly in my top 10 of any style. I love the oaking and the deep vanilla taste. The flavors come out one by one and jump and the beer becomes more complex as it warms. I would certainly pick some up if you can find it. That said, I do think the $20 price tag is a bit high for any beer, but...If you are ok with paying those prices, this one did not disappoint. The best beer from the brewery so far.
Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass. Lacing is also prevalent down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of whiskey are present in the nose—these become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts with strong flavors of oak and notes of whiskey from the barrel aging. The whiskey flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The whiskey lends warming sensations to your mouth.
O: The whiskey barrel aging really makes this beer have interesting aromas and flavors. It is quite drinkable considering its strength.
Serving type: growler
