To keep this short and sweet, there's just too much whiskey flavor for me if I want to enjoy this. Ole heathen was good but the whiskey on this one is a little overwhelming and unpleasant. Granted, I don't much enjoy straight liquor, and maybe that's the issue, but this tastes more of liquor than beer to me and I'm not enjoying drinking this one much as a result. It reminds me of a really badly root beer flavored dum-dum. I'll say it's ok. But that's my whiskey unfriendly palate saying so, keep in mind. Not something I'll seek out again.

A: pours mildly viscous black, producing a fluffy head that lasts very well

S: light roasted notes covered by the obvious wood tones. There is also a hint of cherry.

T/M: definitely didn't see it coming, but it tends towards a sour stout in some fashion. There's a bit more carbonation than I'm used to in a RIS, also. The front taste (probably mostly due to the carbonation), had a bit of a cola taste. Behind that is a raspberry-cocoa taste, followed by the barrel wood taste the slowly dries the taste.

O: even with all the unexpected flavors mentioned above, I enjoyed this beer. It was simple, fairly straightforward, and tasty.
