Grenade growler shared by Kevin - thanks.

A: Pours black with reddish highlights with a thin (1/4-inch) tan head which settles to the rim and leaves a few spots of lace.

N: Roasty, dark cocoa powder, grainy, smokey, ash, oak.

T: Follows nose with some layered coffee, pepper and vanilla notes.

M: Full body and light carbonation. Thick, milky, oily, smooth and rich finish.

O: Well done. The 3 bourbons meld well together with none dominating and each contributing to an overall lovely mix.

Growler sent to me by my awesome brother-in-law, who went to the release and hooked me up with two growlers of this coveted beer with next to no notice.

The beer appears dark brown with a thin, oily tan head that leaves a sheet of lacing cascading down the walls of the snifter. Aromas include oak, roast, chocolate, vanilla, a touch of coffee, and a prominent rye whiskey presence. The rye whiskey barrel character seems to dominate the Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace components just a bit. The beer is remarkably smooth and light on the palate. Light warming heat with a mild tannic note in the finish. Lingering rye bread and whiskey on the palate. Overall, this is really solid and I find it a bit of a departure from the typical barrel-aged stout.

Just happen to be in town for a wedding! On tap at the brewery - poured into a snifter at 30 degrees, and sat for a while until it came up considerably in temperature.

A: Pitch black with one finger of tan/khaki head.

S: Light aroma of mesquite smoke and jalapeño pepper, chocolate and bourbon.

T: Huge notes of chocolate up front; light spiciness from the jalapeño; and oak, vanilla and mild bourbon character. Near perfection.

M: Light carbonation and full bodied - right to style.

O: This unique take on an RIS easily stands among the best that I've had.
