Tan head. Black color.

The heat and peppers are amazing! I love how much they show. Great vanilla and cocoa. I didn't think JD barrels could taste so good. Great bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Full bodied. Thick.

Absolutely incredible.

Bottled 6/6/13 and aged 18 months before bottling so this bottle was aged about 36 months before consumption.
This is one of the best if not the best barrel aged stout I ever had.
A: Pitch black with a dark tan head
S: Vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, oak, bourbon, and a light pepper aroma.
M: Heavy bodied and slick, perfect
T: Starts off with some light cinnamon,ginger, vanilla, oak, as well as cocoa, roasted malt and some vanilla
Finishes with a subtle heat in the back of throat from the chili peppers but not overly spicy
Blown away 5/5

Pour is black with brown edges. Nose is sweet, dark malt, berry sweetness, a hint of roast. Taste has more sweetness, a good bit of burning whiskey, strong hot spice in the finish. Malts are rich and big, body is full with strong carb. Overly sweet on the finish. Heat is strong as well from the spice on the finish.
