A- Darker brown body, half finger white head that drops quickly into a thin collar.

S- Milk chocolate aromas, a bit of rye whiskey permeates the nose, but for the most part it isn't particularly complex in any way even when it warms up.

F- Smooth milk chocolate, rye whiskey, mildly burnt malt, bitter black coffee.

M- Thinner-medium body, a bit harsh on the finish, although not terribly hot.

O- Decent stout, but a bit thin. I think the rye whiskey on its own doesn't impart enough complexity to the base beer.

Very delicious but not as good as the standard bourbon barrel aged stout from Central Waters. The spiciness from the rye barrels was just ok.
