Rating batch 2, because I don't think this beer belongs on the charts where it is. Batch 1 is still phenomenal.

A weird bell pepper almost pickle like flavor ruins this for me. The cinnamon and vanilla are muted compared to batch 1. There is definitely some nice barrel character and the full bodied base beer shows, but they are overpowered unfortunately.

Wow the nose of this is just stupid. One of the few double barrel stouts I have had before in which the balance of both barrels work out in unison. Sweet rum plus the complex apple brandy notes bring on a truly unique aroma I have never inhaled before. The taste follows pretty close but not fully. Getting more brandy and rum and much of the apple is lost. Spices coming thru as it warms up. Complex flavors and very rich thick mouth feel. Amazing!

Batch 1 is one of the top 5 beers , drinking amazing right now. Spice has dialed down allowing apple brandy to shine. b2 needs some time . Little to spicy right now.
