Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
In December, 2010 we filled Jack Daniels and Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with our Russian Imperial Stout, Baracus. After a year of aging, the result is a densely viscous treat with hints of vanilla, bourbon and oak. We pity the fool who doesn't try this one!

Baracus RIS aged one year in Jack Daniels and Heaven Hill barrels. I pity the fool!

Appearance -- Dark brown, slim frothy mocha head. She's got legs...

Smell -- Huge vanilla woodiness, maple sugar, whiskey, and cocoa. Not much in terms of roast, very barrel-forward, but nice.

Taste -- Incredibly smooth with sweet whiskey, woody vanilla, molasses and cocoa sweetness. Good roast character, not overwhelming. Some booziness in the finish, but mild.

Mouthfeel -- Big body with milder carbonation. High marks.

Overall - Really well-executed, possibly my favorite beer from Revolution yet.
