look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 6/25/13; consumed on 11/15/13.

A: Poured from the bomber into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is black with a 1-finger chocolatey (think Yoo-Hoo) colored head that settles quickly. Good splotches of lace left behind on the glass.

S: The bourbon is the first scent noted. However, I'm also getting some chocolate, molasses and dark fruits.

T: Again, the bourbon and high alcohol provide the first impression. But there's a lot going on here. Chocolatey malt foundation, molasses, bourbon, vanilla, tannic wood and a good bitterness at the finish. I don't get the pecans at all, however. Finishes with heat from the ABV on the back end of the palate and felt as warmth in the belly.

M: There is a silkiness to the feel that is quite nice. In fact, I'm bumping up the score on the mouthfeel even higher than where I started it. The body is heavy in weight, but feels so smooth that it almost seems lighter.

O: Too hot to get a higher overall score. I believe the bottle says one-quarter of this beer was bourbon barrel aged. If that's correct, for my tastebuds I suspect I'd rather see about one-eighth (maybe one-sixth). That 13% ABV is obvious, in the nose and the taste. But all in all, I'm impressed with this collaboration.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 07/16/13.

Pours opaque black with 1/2 inch of khaki head that quickly fades to a thin ring on top and leaves faint spotty lace.

Smell is dominated by an astringent, alcohol presence with faint dark chocolate and a hint of molasses. Somewhat disappointing. No noticeable nut aroma in the nose.

Taste is of sweet malt, dark chocolate and a hint of rye. There is noticeable bourbon bite on the back end. I'm not picking up any pecan here either.

Mouthfeel is heavy bodied with high carbonation.

The smell on this one almost killed it for me. A very boozy, almost chemical aroma. The taste wasn't all bad, just a little too bitter from start to finish for my taste. This might appeal more to the bourbon, whiskey and rye drinker.

$9.99 for a 22oz bottle @ BevCo. Brewed with rye, wheat malt and pecans with 1/4 aged in Bourbon whiskey barrels. 13% ABV, 65 IBU's.

Pours out to a rich but not oily black, forming a nice sized light cocoa colored head with mousse-like bubbles of foam, superior retention and solid sheets of lacing. Carbonation is moderate, @2.5 carbs or so. The nose is quite nice, more delicate than I was expecting...dark chocolate, carob, some subtle dates and prunes, some herbal hops, a subtle whiff of alcohol. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, pillowy soft with a big dense body and slightly syrupy. The taste opens big with prunes and dates, followed by dark chocolate, rum balls, medium roast but quite acidic, mild bitterness all things considered which is very herbal in nature, some warmth and drying pepper in the finish and lingering notes of prunes in the aftertaste. I don't taste pecans or any kind of nut for that matter. I would not get that this is aged in bourbon barrel until 1/2 glass into it, but it's the acidity and booze that gives me that impression, not a bourbon flavor.

I have to say I'm not a fan of this. The very strong acidity of the bourbon and roast malts mixed with the booze and green leafy herbal hops really messes up this beer, creating an smattered mix of unbalanced flavors that don't sit well with each other.
