Nice deep brown color, approaching black, with an overly-large tan head that's slow to dissipate and leaves annoyingly large-and-clumpy lacing. Rye whiskey up front in the nose, along with chocolate, smoke, nuts and some creamy, roasted malt. Pretty similar taste, with the rye subdued and the smoke fairly prominent. Thick, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel with high carbonation for the style. The over-carbonation negatively impacts the taste, and smoked beers aren't really my thing, either. Others may enjoy it more.

3.77/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Black with no light coming through when put up to the light. Nice one finger brown head

Smell: A ton of rye spice, slight roasted malt presence, and caramel sweetness

Taste: Rye and roasted malts up front with a sweet caramel finish. Maybe a hint of oak, but no whiskey characteristics whatsoever

Mouthfeel: Very, very thin body for this style. The thinnest imperial stout that i recall in fact. It also isnt all that smooth, sort of unrefined and gritty. If theres a down side to this beer, the mouthfeel would be it

Overall: i didnt have the highest of hopes, but i still find this a bit of a disappointment. The mouthfeel alone makes me feel like im drinking roasty rye water. I also wish it would be more full flavored and more robust and match the 11% abv. The aftertaste also falls off rather quickly. I couldnt really savor this one. Another thing is that there is little to no whiskey presence. I forgot it was even BBA. All in all its still fairly tasty and I'm happy to call this a local brew, but its not something ill buy again to revisit. Ill cellar the other three bottles and see what happens

the aromas are vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate, a little alcohol burning the nostril hairs. the flavor is balanced mostly. it comes off pretty sweet at first mimicking the aroma but finishes dry and spicy. the whiskey lingers quite a bit, sort of a cheap whiskey taste to it but thankfully it is pretty mild
