I'm gonna be debbie downer here. I was at the Henna Batch 1 release. Landed several bottles. Still have 2 left. I consider them treasures to be opened on only the most special occassions. That beer was simply mind blowing. It's pillowy soft mouthfeel and perfectly blended flavors could easily fool people into believing it was barrel aged. So when the real BA batch was announced, I lost my shit. Couldn't wait for the beautiful flavors to touch my lips again. Maybe I set my sights too high, but I really expected something on par with a Derivation. While BA Double Rainbow is still a great beer, sadly, it doesn't measure up to where I think it should be. I didn't get much barrel from any of the 3 variants. In fact, I'll say you could open a batch 1 and a BA Double Rainbow in a blind side by side, and find it difficult to identify which one had the barrel treatment. That is probably more of a positive comment about B1 than it is negative about BA. I will do that side by side someday. But now maybe more than ever, the occassion will have to be super special. No neckbeards allowed! lol

P.S. Yes, that's Shady in my profile pic. She's been to every Henna release so far. She's OG! We'll see you all there again soon.

Generously shared at DLD the day this was released and this absolutely amazing. Liquid creamy perfection with the perfect balance of barrel. Again with Henna base you can smell the creaminess and all 3 ingredients are balanced. Easily the highlight of all beers I tried at DLD!

500ml bottle, gold wax. From the 2018 release. Served in a snifter glass at home. Pours a dark black body, opaque with a one finger offwhite head. Short retention. Not much lacing. Smell is rich strawberry sweetness, vanilla ice cream, fair bit of whiskey heat. Delicious, approaching Scooop territory. Could use a little more chocolate fudge, but there is a fair bit already. Flavour is less of the strawberry and vanilla, and a bit of the chocolate and a fair bit more whiskey heat than the others. Disappointing, but still a very good stout. Fair bit of heat, oak, touch of astringent char. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, appropriately carbonated, heat on the finish that cuts through the overall adjunct fest. Overall- smell is close to achieving what we all wanted from this beer, but the taste isn't anywhere near this. The adjuncts are overpowered by the whiskey on the palate. Too bad, as the aroma was extremely promising. Essentially, this is not anywhere near the pinnacle of strawberry vanilla barrel-aged stouts- aka Rare Scoooop. Don't buy into this one thinking this is such.
