This is an Imperial Stout aged in Wild Turkey Barrels.
A - This beer pours dark as night with an khaki colored head. The head retention is great, and the beer just sticks to the glass as bubbles slowly cascade down after a few twirls in the glass.
S - On the nose I get the whiskey up front, and notes of oak and vanilla followed. I also get a hint of roasted malt.
T - Getting the whiskey up first, and it dissipates into notes of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and oak. There is some sweetness in there also as the beer warms up. A touch of heat from the alcohol on the back end. Really great blend of flavors.
M - Mouthfeel is spot on for something like this. Not too light, but not so heavy to where it's syrupy or overwhelming. It coats the palate and is a very smooth drinker for the high ABV.
O - Overall I was really impressed by this. I enjoyed how the barrel isn't overpowering like it is in some of these barrel aged stouts. You get a great base beer with the added plus of well done barrel aging. This beer proves you don't have to be a big time brewery to produce a great barrel aged beer.
