Thanks to Jerc and Mabel. Appearance: Pitch black, small brown head. Aroma: Super whiskey nose, a lot of decent woody notes too with smoke and alcohol. Flavour: Lots of malt, liquorice, whiskey, alcohol and a long boozy dark chocolate finish. A nice winter warmer.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2010
Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! A very rare treat. Pours black with a large creamy head. Aroma is weak... Faint almost. Milk chocolate, vanilla and chalk on the nose with yeast (Im almost positive 1056) and soft fruit under the roasty top notes. The flavor is big and roasty. Smoke, toasted oak, chocolate, a chewy rye flavor, under-ripe stone fruits, and vanilla. Big chewy mouth feel. Very tasty and Im looking forward to see what a year or two will do to this one.

Bottle [650ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a very dark brown with an average size foamy tan head and nice lacing on the glass. Nice aroma is sweet and woody, with roasted malt, whiskey and chocolate. Flavour: Yum! The barrel-aging is nice, its not overdone and easy to drink. Roasted malt, chocolate, wood, leafy green hops and whiskey. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Loved it!

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2010
pours black as night with a tall brown head. Aroma is great big and malty with a very woody aroma and a very distinct rye smell. However the rye barrel is very prominent on the palate. This is a great stout big and malty with that strong oak flavour and distinctive rye sweetness.and a strong chocolate flavour in the finish. This is a very cool stout.
