Large shared bottle.
Black-brown body with a thin but durable head.
Excellent use of bourbon barrel aging; the effects enhance more than dominate the dark roasted grains of the base stout.

Don't understand the high ratings on this one. Hot boozy mess, like they dumped the booze right into the bottle instead of letting it age in a barrel. Stout base is thin and overall pretty flavorless. No Rules? No way. Just OK.

Pours a typical black, with minimal head. Every so slight barrel note. Fairly non-descript taste, pretty blah in my opinion, with a hint of barrel as a redeeming quality. I will give it big points on the finish though, as there is not one hint whatsoever that this is 13%. I did a double take and grabbed to bottle to double check when I was told.

I wish the beer was as awesome as the packaging. Pretty easy drinking for such a high ABV, but overall just average, not overly complex or impressive

This is a great stout, but you can't appreciate it unless it hits about 60degrees... when you do the chocolate, Roasty notes come out and the barrel becomes present.

The barrel is not the lead here, that's the base beer, and it works great. Tons of chocolate and an overall great flavor. This is very good and should be appreciated as a barrel aged beer where the barrel doesn't take the lead.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had 3/4/17.

Pours a deep cola color, somewhat opaque, with a half inch foamy head and some spotty lacing. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, light roast malts, toffee, vanilla, licorice, caramel, some coconut, light bourbon and oak. The taste leads more with the malt, then chocolate, cocoa, caramel, bourbon, some oak, lighter vanilla and licorice than the nose, light tobacco, some alcohol. Smooth, a good but lighter body for the style, well carbonated.

Great flavors and aromas, really good flavor from the barrels, has a different mouthfeel. Maybe from the rice? Very enjoyable. It’s at a great price point, so it’s well worth a purchase.
