4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 1/21/14 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store. Pours completely opaque black with a thin, slow-forming brown head that slowly recedes to a very thin collar of lace. The nose is molasses, anise, vanilla, brown sugar, and it is lightly funky and vinous. The flavor is fairly sweet with a whole lot of coconut and vanilla backed up by the molasses, brown sugar, and some nicely bitter roasted coffee. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long roasted coffee, brown sugar, coconut, and lightly funky vinous finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with bubbly ring of tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and whiskey with a hint of funky acidity underneath. Taste follows, an interesting blend of the barrel aged stout and the sour. More mild on the sour than something like tart of darkness, and more less whiskey barrel than its later cousin. Really nice.

750ml bottle. Black with short brown head. Smooth and silky wine-forward aroma. Taste is just exceptionally smooth and fruity. The drinkability of this one is phenomenal. If I have one minor criticism is that the rye whiskey barrel isnít as prominent. Fantastic stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Finally decided to open this. Thanks Tim! Bottle, skiff of bubbly foam left a ring behind. Aroma bourbon, molasses, cookies, dried cherries, chocolate, dust. Taste is molasses, cookies, vanilla, cherries, brown sugar, anise, oak. Palate is very thick and rich, little carbonation left at this point. Finish is anise, molasses and roasted barley. This is a bit sweeter than I like,
I actually wish it were more sour, my memory of the second batch is not much different. Still drinking this and re-rating. The sourness is like citric acid in sweet candy. Itís subtle, but without it the candy would just be sweet. This is like a hint of cherry lifesavers, under all that roasty molasses vanilla and licorice. Again, I might wish it were dryer or more sour, but the effect is mesmerizing. I really could just keep sipping this, and itís well past midnight.
