The whiskey is very prevalent on the finish, with a hint of spice.

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.
