Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at AndrewK's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, wood, and whiskey aromas. Taste is much the same with char and cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great whiskey barrel aged aroma but the flavor is a bit too char forward for my liking.
