2018 vintage. About six months from bottling.

A: Pours jet black with a thick ring of dark brown, espresso-like head. No lacing and average retention.

S: Suuuuper rich dark chocolate, blackstrap molasses, vanilla bean, dry oak barrel and cinnamon, and light bourbon. A little bit of cardboard. A very brawny BA stout.

T: Dark chocolate, vanilla, cola, light spice (cinnamon, clove) and light toasted oak, a bit of sherry and roastiness. Pretty long finish. The barrel is not very noticeable on the palate. As you might guess from the base, this is super sweet; the barrel and vanilla balances this out somewhat but not completely. Like a liquid candy bar.

M: Sticky full body and medium, sharp carbonation that thankfully cuts through the massive body. A comforting alcohol warmth gently warms your innards.

O: Big, sweet, rich, and pretty tasty beer. The cardboard note is distracting, and the sweetness is as overwhelming as it is in regular DL. I’d always heard that, even though the base beer is terrible, adding it to barrels transformed it in such a way to somehow make it ethereal. That’s half true, I guess. I can’t drink more than like 4oz of this stuff.

Can cross this whale off the list! Mouthfeel on this beer is outstanding. If you have a chance to sample or get this beer I highly recommend it for sure!
