Possibly the best "risk it and see" purchase I've ever made: cocoa, coffee and a light smokiness melds into vanilla-tinged bourbon/light rye spice. A picture-perfect example of a barrel-aged imperial stout that melds the best of its booze with a rich, complex, and deceptively easy-drinking experience. Rescue this from any shelf you may find it on.

A: Very dark in color soft carbonation

S: Aged in rye whiskey barrels but it smells like a good stout on the nose with roasted coffee and chocolate then some vanilla smells

T: smooth rich chocolate with some liquor taste I really would have guessed bourbon very smooth

M: Very smooth and surprisingly creamy for a barrel aged beers just an excellent mouthfeel

O : fairly impressed here, it's got a very smooth mouthfeel no heat the barrel is right there but not in your face it's an astonishingly well rounded BA stout

Pours midnight black color with a inch+ tan head. Nice lacing as the head fades.

Smell has notes of rye, whisky, chocolate, vanilla, barn leather, coffee and smoke. Very intense and inviting

The taste follows with a very smooth balanced attach of rye flavors, dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. The carbonation is persistent but not overbearing or light. The Alcohol cant be missed at 11%ABV but is more integrated than some of the other beers of this style.

If is not heavy on the palate which is more normal for this style. Dry and complex.

Overall One of the better beers in this category available. Looking for the new release coming out soon.

I bought this at the Giant eagle off Route 8. Amazing election there.

A: Close to black with copper undertones.
S: A little bit of Canadian whiskey and the sweetness of a great stout.
T: Wow, I've been a supporter of this brewery but this time they really pushed it up a notch. This is thebest beer that I've tasted from Pittsburgh.
M: There is little in way of carbonation but the stout is full flavoured and thick on the tongue as I want it to be.
O: Full Pint has finally it the make that I I knew they would. I hope that they keep producing on this level. If they do then we in for some great treats in western PA.

Aroma: Wonderful. Woody, smoky, worty, bacon, chocolate, coffee, lots of grains. I love it already. I want to buy another bottle and I haven't even tasted it.

Appearance: It's official, the darkest head I've ever seen, topping the previous champion the Alaskan Perseverance Imperial Stout. Good retention and a lot of lacing. Black, opaque.

Taste: Bacon, serious bacon. Rye, chocolate, coffee, wood, smoke. Lots of sweetness, with the bitterness of the rye, coffee and smoke to balance it out. Wow, incredible. No alcohol! Wonderful roasty coffee finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Mild carbonation. Very oily. No warming from the alcohol.

Overall: Impressive. Bold. Complex. Delicious. My first "5" rating, fitting being that this is my 100th review on BA.

On tap at the Pine for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week! Served in a 12 oz snifter.

A- Body is a menacing dark brown, nearly black. Served with a 1-2 finger creamy tan head. Some lacing is left behind in the glass. Held up to the light side by side with Big Eddy this brew was much darker and richer in color.

S- Balance. Great Balance. Dark Chocolate, Roasted Malt, Oak Barrel, Whiskey, rye, malt everywhere.

T- Flavor is very similar to the nose. The base beer is moslty present upfront with that signature rye backbone. A lot of barrel comes through for the finish-but it balances well with the base beer and does not overwhelm it. There is a big alcohol warmth at end and a moderate, balance flavor-but none of the associated astringency.

M- Exceptional. Low to medium carbonation and a thick, deep, very smooth, complex body.

O- Overall this is a fantastic stout. I love hoppy rye beers because they add such a smoothness to the mouthfeel but I didn't realize what a difference it would make in a stout. Fantastic job by Full Pint in putting this one together. I bought a four pack and I hope its just as good bottled.
