4.31/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

10oz served in a goblet at Alchemy Cafe, 5/5/2014.

A- Dark cola brown body, one finger white head with good retention, a little bit of lacing. Looks the part of an imperial porter.

S- Lots and lots of rye whiskey as I would expect from a Central Waters barrel-aged beer. Seriously, they must leave a quarter of the barrel filled with whiskey. However, this is not off-putting at all because it melds in well with the base beer as it warms up. Smooth milk chocolate sweetness, a bit of coffee to temper that sweetness. The rye definitely shows up in this one, which I appreciate.

F- Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, milk chocolate, a bit of roast, bitter dark malt, a little bit of espresso and that damp oak barrel flavour. Very interesting, starts out one-note when its served cold but opens up a good bit as it warms. Still not superbly complex, but its definitely hitting the notes it advertises in the name.

M- Quite smooth, medium bodied and just right for a porter. Good carbonation. Served too cold, so definitely let this warm up. The finish is clean and just about right between dry and slick.

O- This is very good, very interesting and drinkable. I enjoyed this one a lot, and I'm glad I came out to this one Madison Craft Beer Week event as this is apparently the only event they're bringing this one to for the week.

A: Solid black with expresso colored head. Very beautiful looking only notch down is a minor cosmetic one with lacing not being the best,
S: Amazing fruits then morph into a hint of vanilla and finish in a magnificently blended sweet rye whiskey smell.
T: Follows along with the smell: dark fruits, hints of vanilla/chocolate, rye whiskey
M: Nice carbonation and just slightly thinner than I would expect with a beer with oatmeal in the name.
O: Wow! This beer blew me away. I'm not the hugest porter fan as I generally dislike the predominant fruity aspect of it but this beer gives a serenade of flavors throughout.
