Bottle poured into a Crooked Stave snifter

A: Pours a thick, motor oil black color, with a thin sticky mocha colored head. Quickly fades, leaving a nice stubborn tan collar around the edges.

S: Loads of chocolate, sweet booze, light toasted oatmeal. Vanilla and caramel aroma from the whiskey, with the lightest hint of oak.

T: Prominent whiskey punch right off the bat. Roasty, dark chocolate. Slightly bitter.

M: Thick, viscous, full-bodied. Warming feel from the alcohol, but tastes much stronger than 9.4%. Adequately light carbonation.

O: Good on the verge of great, but has just a little harshness from the whiskey bite. The sweet smell doesn't really translate over to the taste, and just a little bit may have mellowed the booziness. Either way, extremely tasty.

Thanks to Creetoper for sharing this bottle.

A - Black with a thin layer of light brown head.

S - Toasted oak, whiskey and chocolate. Seems to be a good balance of the barrel and the base beer.

T - Toasted oak up front with nice sweet whiskey and vanilla undertones giving way to roast, chocolate fudge and caramel flavours from the base beer. Really good balance of the barrel qualities and the base beer.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Light carbonation.
