Big waste of money. Infected. Apparently someone needs to go back to basics before releasing garbage like this.

Flavor was def off and appears to have signs of tart infection. Not horrible, but not the way the style should taste especially at a $35 price tag.

Smells of green apples and a touch of nail polish. Body is thin, prickly. No bourbon notes, no lactose creaminess. Infected.

2014 bottle.

Not a totally fair review as this was one of the infected bottles released this year. For the record FFF made good with a gift card at the kiosk for the cost of the bottle.

Had on tap at Three Floyds into a snifter/tulip consecutively after the regular Moloko.

Poured jet black, not much of a head to speak of aside from some bubbles forming a ring. Naturally with no head, there wasn't really any lacing left behind.

Aroma was pretty much straight bourbon, quite hot on the nose. I didn't really perceive any of the wonderful vanilla and oak notes that usually come with barrel aging. The stout itself barely managed to break through the bourbon but slight notes of chocolate made it through.

Taste was again straight bourbon. This time I struggled to pick up any of the stout properties. It tasted like I was drinking bourbon on the rocks. Quite hot on the way down. It's like all the characteristics of bourbon I don't like were transferred to the beer and none of the good came with it.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied, smooth, but the hot alcohol made it a bit bracing.

I was very disappointed in this one. I normally love bourbon aged beers but this one failed greatly. I'd take the regular Moloko over this any day. Double your serving size as well.

I can not say that it was infected; however, that is about the most glowing praise I can give this beer. The body was thin. The taste was sweet, with a strange flavor I could not pin down. Perhaps my expectations of what a Barrel Aged Beer from Three Floyds should be were set too high. Unfortunately, it was the most expensive bottle of beer I purchased this year. I should have bought a case of Zombie Dust instead.
