Poured from the 750 into a Teku.
This three year old cellared beer pours nearly jet black with very low levels of mid khaki head.
Aromas are tons of roast and wood, some sweetness from the Rye.
Flavors are nice, big Imperial Stout roast flavors, chocolate, wood and mild notes of Rye.
Mouthfeel was good but wished it was thicker.
Overall, this aged one off beer was really nice but was expecting more Rye notes here.

This beer is tasting fantastic right now. My bottle says aged in Rye Whiskey barrels so not sure about the Maker's Mark description. The spicy rye whiskey flavor compliments the milk stout and mild chocolate flavor beautifully. The mouth feel is fantastic. Slight alc. burn but not overpowering. Really enjoying this.

From a 75 cl bottle

Pours jet black, dark tan fine head is a quarter inch thick. Dissipates to a film.

Smells of rich cocoa, brown sugar, roasted coffee, oak, and whiskey.

Tastes of brown sugar, rye, molasses, chocolate, cream, vanilla, and dry oak. Hints of bourbon in the aftertaste.

Medium to full body with a tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth. A bit of alcohol numbing and warmth going down.

A really nice stout, one of the best aromas from a stout like this I've ever smelled. Tastes great, goes down smooth despite the strength. Definitely worth seeking out.
