What happens when a 60/40 blend of RETRIBUTION Imperial Stout and MISERY Wheat Wine-Style Ale ages for 6 months inside a charred Kentucky white oak bourbon barrel? The third coming of divinity. This full bodied blended stout balances a citrus aroma and tropical, fruity esters with righteous notes of dark fruit, vanilla, charred oak, and espresso for a union of suffering and justice that will leave you thankful that... Misery Finally Has Company.

Bottle shared with the guys. Aroma is dark citrus, prune, bourbon, chocolate, and slight oak. Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Taste is barrel, dark fruits, slight chocolate/vanilla, and a bitter hop. Lots more fresh barleywine presence than I thought there would be. Bold but not viscous. Nice.

Bottle. Number 2011 of 3240. Black bodied with a short tan head. So much toasted coconut and vanilla in the nose! Roasted malt, booze, oak notes and underlying dark fruit there as well. Taste is big coconut, vanilla, booze, oak, roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, hints of dark fruit and faint coffee notes. Body is medium with a strong bubbly carbonation and lots of boozy warmth. Finishes with a welcoming warming in the gut. There’s a lot more toasted coconut, vanilla, oak, roasted malt, chocolate notes, light coffee and burnt caramel. Yummy!

On tap at Al’s of hampden. Pours pitch black, with minimal head retention. The head is a nice off white to khaki color. Nose is of bourbon, vanilla, char, and some wheat. Taste for me was mostly vanilla and bourbon, wasn’t able to pick out the flavors that I did in the nose. Got a bottle to lay back, this should age nicely.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma sort of grainy/ pet food like, but some roasted malts, light wheat, some bourbon and vanilla, and a little dough/dark fruits. Flavor the same but without that graininess. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.
