First had: on tap at TH (and a growler to follow)

I'll admit, I haven't been the biggest fan of TH's stouts overall...to me, they can be hit or miss. But that can really be said about any brewery. Regardless, they are improving, and this one was a hit, and possibly the best they've done so far. ... Maybe my second favorite to Red Wine OV, but let's not split hairs.

Poured a black void in a glass, topped with a half inch of creamy tan head, retaining as a thick ringlet and leaving some streaks of lacing behind. Chocolaty aroma, notes of oak, anise, coffee, and tame whiskey. I really think it was a great idea to blend this one--it was half fresh stout and half aged 7 months in Tuthilltown whiskey barrels. The whiskey was easily noticeable in the taste, but it was so gently manifested, and with almost no heat at all. Otherwise, nice dark chocolate profile, lighter notes of oak, vanilla, and anise. Very well-balanced, with a body on the fuller side of medium (finally?), smooth and drinkable. Very nice.
