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.

Pours a rich black with a medium-brown head. Aroma is creamy and whiskey. The flavor is burnt very alcoholic. I guess you could say it's "rich", but not the kind of rich I prefer. It's not as smooth or silky as others of it's style either. Overall, this is just a "good" Imperial. Definitely not worth the $15 plus price for a 4 pack though. I will not be purchasing this again, despite my rating - there are more notable beers of this style available.

If this was just an imperial stout it would be a good stout. I don't really get any barrel in it at all. Overall not bad for the price.

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

No trace of the rye barrel, too thin for an imperial stout, devastatingly average despite the good looks.

Had a 2013 on tap at Barcade, much better and well-rounded, the rye is very present.
