A: Pitch black body with a head that dissipated after lingering for much longer than expected for the abv
S: Rye whiskey, dark chocolate, port, roasted dark malt, burnt marshmallow, brownie batter, bourbon, dates, brown sugar, leather, oats
T: Rye whiskey, charred oak, bitter dark chocolate, vanilla, roasty malt, alcohol, hint of dates and raisins, marshmallow, bourbon, oat
M: Full and creamy but still goes down easy
O: Incredibly impressive for the abv. Very barrel forward but the alcohol is well integrated. Definitely for fans of charred oak, whiskey/bourbon and roasty malt.

Gorgeous draft pour into a 9oz stemless tulip boasts a light denying deep brown body and floats a 3/4in head of dark cocoa colored varied-sized bubbles. Sheets of lacing run back to the ring.

Aroma is mostly booze, but the cocoa, vanilla, oak, and leather are present.

Flavors are outstanding. All of them. Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, leather, ash, dark stone fruit...and perfectly balanced bitter and sweet.

Mouthfeel is everything I expect. Full and creamy without being sticky, but just enough booze warming in the back of the palate and chest.

Overall I am leaving open the possibility that a brewery can top this. I double barrel dare them.

Thanks bstyle for this
12 oz can, dated 1/4/18, poured into a snifter

A- Black with a very small mocha head

S- Bourbon, oak, dark fruits, roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, some caramel, a little boozy.

T- Dark fruits, combo of figs and cherries, bourbon, chocolate, fudge, roasted malts, vanilla, oak, caramel, minimal booze for 17% ABV and very well balanced.

M- Smooth, full body.

O- Another great version of Deth’s Tar, very balanced and easy to drink given the ABV.

This is an outstanding beer! This beer truly showcases barrel character and what a phenomenal job it does. You can taste the subtleties of both the Woodford and Whistle Pig Rye barrels. Deep, complex and amazing. The whole Deep Wood series has been amazing this year and this beer truly showcases what you can do with barrel aging.
