Surprisingly good bourbon barrel aged beer. Great balance for the style. Not sure how available this beer is, or the cost, but Iíd search out some more.

This was poured into a mini snifter. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin tan head that dissipated within less than twenty seconds. Speckled lacing clings and falls adequately. The smell has a wonderful combination of spicy rye to blend into some chocolate and coffee. Light sweetness runs about to entice a light vanilla to even show its face. The taste was slightly sweet with the roast to also allow a nice little bit of rye spice. Thereís a sticky sweet and semi-spicy rye aftertaste to lead into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium to heavy on the body with a nice sipping quality about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style as it seems to have a nice smoothness to it. Overall, this was a well crafted Imperial Stout and to add the rye whiskey was a nice touch. If I had another, Iíd love to age one.

Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Just about black in color with a small off-white head. Graham cracker, roasted malt, and some dark chocolate. A little bit of dark fruits. Flavor is kind of sweet and chocolatey. Sweet vanilla, oak, and cocoa powder. A touch on the bitter side.

12 Fl. Oz bottle. Poured dark (almost black) brown, small brown head and nice lacing all over the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, wood and some chocolate. Creamy texture and medium body; taste is a nice combination of rye, dark fruit, roast notes and a touch of bourbon. Alcohol is actually quite well hidden making it a very drinkable beer; not bad at all.

How could one argue about this one? Dark and rich with the rye balance and backing. Hides the 11% well as its not too boozy.

Black pour with a finger of head in a snifter. Vanilla whiskey aroma. Powerful vanilla and whiskey up front with a smooth whiskey rye finish.

Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of rye whiskey. Pours a pitch black with just a ring of light tan foam. If you donít like whiskey stay away from this one, the rye whiskey comes in strong at the beginning, fading over to rye malts, then to a touch of roast and chocolate. Long lingering roasted finish, with a full body and a slick mouthfeel. I enjoy it, but if you donít like barrel aged items, donít like rye whiskey, or donít like rye, stay away from this one.

Not bad. Some decent spicy rye whiskey barrel in kind of a thinner body. Some coffee and thinner body than what it should be. Little homebrew taste to it. Not bad.
