Got this one from 7clutch a while back. Thanks for the love, man!

From a bomber into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Opaque black pour yields a three finger, medium looking, slightly cream, crackly tan head with very good retention. Jet black body with no carbonation evident. Head starts to pothole and become very foamy as it slowly recedes down to a full, foamy cap. Faint wisp remains leaving some dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Oaky, with rye whisky and alcohol on the nose. Woody, boozy and some notes of chocolate and vanilla underneath. A bit of a perfume character from the spirit.

TASTE: Oak, rye and whisky flavors up front. Woody through the middle with some more alcohol at the swallow, then a bolder and lingering finish of rye, oak, some vanilla and milk chocolate notes, a hint of caramel and toffee, and some booze. A little more piercing in the barrel department, and slightly perfume-like as well.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Slightly creamy on the palate, a little fizzy perhaps, goes down fine and finishes rather sticky. Some alcohol lingers.

OVERALL: Cycle usually rocks it out of the park, but this is more like a bloop single with two outs and nobody on. This was okay, but not what the others stouts in their arsenal have been. The barrel was a little too woody and perfume-like for my tastes, and the feel a touch fizzier than I’m used to from these guys. Not a bad brew, just not up to Cycle’s unbelievably lofty standards. Still fine overall and worth checking out, but I would personally take one of their many other world class brews over this one. Thanks again 7Clutch. Always love these guys.

Black color with tan head.

Rye barrel flavors with bourbon notes. Very oaky. Chocolate with roast.

Smooth and creamy. Tasted like rare dos but rye BA.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, vanilla, marshmallow, and coconut aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, vanilla, marshmallow, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness 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 very good beer with nice vanilla and marshmallow aromas and flavors.

Serving type: bottle.

So much barrel but none of the boozy heat. Coconut, wood, and some kind of whiskey (?). Great stuff, thanks Matt! Would love to try more from these guys.
