Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A different beer from previous draft iterations of SR-71. This beer has been confirmed to be the equivalent of Assassin (Barrel Aged Norseman’s Wrath) with more time in the barrels. The fill date mirrors the 2014 Assassin release that was aged in Pappy Van Winkle barrels and is most likely drawn from the exact same batch of base beer.

Drank on 6/11/2018. 11oz pour. Silver wax bottle. This was set out for 25 minutes before drinking while the pour took roughly an hour to consume.

Look-motor oil thick just like the other TGs. Tons of lacing, especially as more gets drank. Remains continue to coat the sides of the glass. Tiny mocha colored head

Smell-exactly as expected, dark chocolate, boozy bourbon barrel, hint of vanilla, some oak, a little molasses and caramel

Taste-follows the nose quite a bit. Tons of barrel and bitter dark chocolate. Really and incredible depth of flavor. Even some toasted caramel, like the top of a crepe brûlée and a hint of tart chocolate covered cherry as it really fully warmed.

Feel-incredible. The finish is just amazing as these flavors linger around in the best of ways. As much as there is some booze on the nose, there’s no heat whatsoever. Extremely smooth and easy to drink.

Overall-definitely lives up to the hype. Probably the only time I’ll get a pour like this one again. Absolutely fantastic.

This was without a doubt one of the best ba stouts I've had. Rich thick body with a lot depth to its flavor.

Had this almost a year ago. Was delicious. Great thickness, great mouth feel. Not hot. Great barrel taste. Smell was very nice, bourbon came through great. Great thick body
