Vintage 2013. Black as night with a small head that quickly fades. Carbonation more lively than I'd expect just by looking at it. Aroma is straight barrel with a touch of rye and roasted malts. Taste is more exciting than the aroma with an initial taste of whiskey quickly transforming to a nice blend of coffee roast and bakers chocolate. A touch of spice from the rye lingers on the finish along with some boozy barrel. Still pretty hot for being two years old. Wish I had a couple more in the cellar. May or may not revisit this beer, but it's pretty good overall.

Thanks goes out to Hojaminbag for this brew.

Poured into a chalice a very nice dark brown color, nice carbonation, with a little fizzy tan head, which does leave a nice island and some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with lots of chocolate, dark fruits, slight vanilla, slight note of whiskey. The taste is very nice malty, dark fruits, vanilla, slight whiskey note. Full body, ABV is hidden pretty well with this one. Overall a very tasty brew, glad to have a chance trying it. Thanks Ben!

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.

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

Pour is black with a good bit of tight coffee colored head. Nose is dry chocolate cake, faint whiskey note, moderate roast, hint of fudge. Flavor follows suit, whiskey is very light, dry chocolate cake, soft creamy feel, nicely carbonated, a bit of fudge and roast through the finish. A hint of sweetness, roast lingers in the finish.

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color—only faint traces of dark brownish red are visible near the far corners of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a short beige colored head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge and some lacing on the surface.
S: Light aromas of whiskey and spicy rye are present in the nose along with notes of roasted malts.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the notes of whiskey linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The alcohol imparts bits of warming to the finish.
O: Except for the whiskey from the barrel aging, this beer does a very good job at masking its alcohol and is rather drinkable considering its strength. You need to let this warm up to let the whiskey flavors develop.
