Poured from fridge temp. Pours motor oil black with nice light brown head. Nose is awesome. Lots of maple coming through, which I love. The whiskey is definitely there on the nose as well. Lots of chocolate and vanilla - not much coffee. Taste is outstanding. Truly spectacular. Deep chocolate and maple notes, with brown sugar, lactose, roasted malts, light coffee, and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a really nice lingering coating on the palate. Overall, this is a truly amazing beer that lived up to the high BA Score.

Appearance: Pours dark as blackstrap molasses with ruby highlights and a rather thin head; a few spots of lacing

Smell: Chocolate and coffee dominant, with with the maple, rye whiskey and bacon all adding discernible tones

Taste: The spicy rye element blends with the chocolate and maple, up front, with the bacon and coffee making an appearance, in the middle; the rye whiskey barrel flavors here are prominent, after the swallow, bringing the alcohol into the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation; warmth in the gullet

Overall: What an interesting twist on a barrel-aged stout this is; live the difference the rye whiskey brings and the bacon is a treat

Pours dark brown. Short, foamy, thick tan head that Fades slowly.

Smells chocolate, coffee, Char, earthy, maple syrup and chocolate syrup.

Kees chocolate, Rose mulch, maple syrup, light caramel and vanilla. Followed by earthy, coffee and a hint of barrel Over powered by all the other flavors I'm sure. Finish is sweet with a coffee linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

this is an awesome edition of this one, the addition of the rye malt before the rye barrel gives it a nice degree of some of that characteristic earthy spice i like so much from the grain, and the general harshness of the spirit, rather ruggedness, is on display as well, it cuts some of the sweetness inherent in the beer from the maple syrup, and i think it plays well with the coffee. this seems more grounded and drinkable than the double oaked edition i had in close proximity to this one, rye not bourbon is fairly apparent, but the little spike of rye malt is noticed for sure. is there actually bacon in this? i see it listed as an ingredient, but outside of a little smoke to it, its not meaty or anything, not greasy or slick either really to the extent i would expect from a meat beer, although i did get some of that in the double oaked variant. the coffee is awesome in this, the body is huge, and the maple syrup adds a lot without taking over, short of sticky in here but contributing to the texture for sure. delicious beer, to me the essence of fall, makes me want a wood stove and a cup of strong coffee, a good book, and nothing but time on my hands. this is awesome beer, one of the best i have had from these guys. they always slay the dark stuff!
