Notes / Commercial Description:
For Remmy's Pappy, we filled barrels from an exceptional Bourbon distillery with our award-winning Imperial Russian Stout and let them steep for many months the transformation result in a beer similar to our original Remy: rich and roasty, with incredible flavors of marshmallow, coconut, and dark fruit, with additional layers of chocolate ganache and rare whiskey goodness. Enjoy!

Okay, so my experience with Remy's Pappy. This was presented to me as "hey try this...I've been told this is infected, but I've kept it cold ever since...you might be able to taste a bit of infection on the end." So obviously my expectations were not high from the start. That being said, I really didn't pick up any infection issues, although my palate is not the super trained "oh my god so much green pepper" as some. And even though infection was not detected by me, nothing else of worth was either. Maybe it was too cold? Not sure, it just wasn't very memorable after the warning to warrant a decent rating. To sum it up in one word, "meh".

This is a batch 1 Remys pappy .....no infection here instead it is a thick, chewy perfectly balanced bourbon aged stout . Still has a nice bourbon heat even after a few years in the cellar some hints of vanilla,coconut and marshmallows from the wood , plus a nice chocolaty flavor that is a real treat . The thickness of this stout is amazing .... Extremely viscous it coats the side of the glass ....a truly world class ba stout .....glad I got to try it

Smell is actually pretty good and doesn't clearly show any signs of being off. Even the initial flavor is still decent, but after that the infection rears its ugly head and it's a whole lot of unpleasant, chart cherry. Truly sad.

Small pour, I'll remember what I can.

L: Black and mocha head, but maybe a little thin?

S: Very rich bourbon, roast, dark fruits and some chocolate.

T: Very much the same. The rich bourbon is great and makes up for the lack of brownie batter, but that brownie quality would make it a 5.

F: A bit thin here, doesn't have that thick chewiness that I want out of the style.

O: Great BA RIS with a wonderful bourbon quality, but not worth what it takes.
