Definitely better than regular 17! The barrel adds some deep depth to it. Still has that after eight chocolate mint candy smell, but with some vanilla and subtle coconut we're pleasing in both taste and smell (also the whiskey notes). The feel for me was a tad thin but the flavors coated the palate through the finish and humg around until the next sip! Overall a solid BA chocolate mint stout, i would like to get another to see how age effects the taste.

Pour on 6-10-17. Pours black with little to no head. Stains the glass when swirled. Faint mint on the nose. Pleasant initial mint taste that finishes silky smooth. Will enjoy to see how this one ages.

This beer ages amazingly. I think I'm going to wait a year or so to open my other bottle. The mint recedes and this stouts complexity leap frogs, making me wish I'd bought more.

Wow. What a beer. Had a bottle of this after ba abraxas on tap. Must have been a bad keg of baa, as the flavors were muted and there was no bourbon present. Some oxidation too. Def. not as good as other time I've had it.

This, on the other hand, had so many flavors. The chocolate, alcohol, mint, and bourbon are all strong but play well together. Think chocolate mint julep milkshake. And of course, perennial stouts are as thick as we all want them to be. Glorious!

L: pours pitch black with no head
S: sweet chocolate mint and smooth whiskey
T: Just like the nose, so so good! Wow
F: thick and sticky. Coats very well.
O: The time in the barrel was done wonders to this beer. The regular is like a chocolate covered breath mint, but this like a chocolate andy's mint / Girl Scout thin mint cookie. A great beer for sure.

Motor oil thick black. Pretty sure the base beer is maman. Light tan head.

Massive mint flavors but lots of chocolate as well. Big bourbon and oak. Rich and velvety.

Full bodied and thick.

The reason this beer is awesome is how thick it is and the barrel treatment. I hate regular 17, but this is glorious.
