Thanks liamt07!!

Appearance. Pours thick and black with a thin tan head.

Smell. Molasses, whiskey, some dark fruit especially dark cherries, dark roasted malts and a bit of smoke.

Taste. Dark malts, raisins, dark chocolate, molasses and a bit of dark fruit, whiskey, and smokey wood.

Mouthfeel. Fairly full bodied, low carbonation.

Overall. Good stuff. Nothing stands out as amazing, but a solid big BA stout.

On-tap during Amsterdam's Volo takeover

Beer is black with a small tan head which is gone quickly.

Nose contains oak, whisky and chocoalte. Obvious barrel presence, but not overpowering.

Taste contains whisky, oak, and vanilla in abundance but, like the nose, not overpowering. Base beer is there as well. Chocolate, roast malt and a bit of spicy rye. Fairly sweet from the whisky. Good.

Full bodied, but a bit on the light side. Moderately carbonated. Sticky.

Overall, good.

Poured in to snifter.

A - Dark black with a thin layer of light brown head

S - Oak, whiskey, light vanilla, some roast. The barrel definitely dominates the nose.

T - A big oak presence with whiskey and a hint of vanilla. The base beer doesn't seem substantial enough to stand up to the barrel aging and is barely present adding some roast and a hint of chocolate. A strange astringency is present throughout that becomes somewhat off-putting.

M - Light to medium body. Light carbonation. A little thin for the style.
