look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Brew pours a good sized, slightly frothy dark brown head. Body is firm and black.

Tons of barrel action on the nose, along with a traditional RIS profile. Rye whiskey, char, ash, oak, red grapes, and bitter, earthy hops. Strong and slightly intimidating nose, this is all I could have asked for here!

Flavor matches, with an intensely bitter stout, sharply sweet in places. The rye adds both a sweet mash taste up front and a mild spice to the back end. Red grapes, burnt coffee, bitter chocolate, vanilla, oak, whiskey.

Decent heat; full bodied and sticky. This is a beer that feels appropriate for 12.5% ABV.

This is a really, really nice BA RIS.

Pours pitch black, thick and syrupy, minimal head. Aroma is chocolate fudge, whiskey, boozy. Flavor is mainly dark roasted chocolate malt, some dark cocoa, barrel aging has a nice presence, big burnt coffee finish. Fairly sweet and very fudgy. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, quite viscous. Overall a very good BA imperial stout.

Bottled November 2017; drank 2/4/18 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a small tan head; frothy lace.

Dark chocolate, oak, mild dark cherry, faint smoke & faint bourbon heat notes in the nose.

Thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Bakers chocolate, oak & dark cherry flavors up front; whiskey heat notes on the finish.

Harsh but drinkable; a nice RIS.
