Bottle. About 14 months old. Pours a deep chocolate brown with a tan head. Nice barleywine like aroma with a hint of chocolate. Full bodied with average carbonation, slick without being sticky. Upon first sip, I was very impressed with the complexity of the malt profile - dark carmelized sugars, nuts, chocolate, rye, and dark (but not bitter) roast. The hops have mellowed some, but there is a nice balancing bitterness. The spicy oak and vanilla and more depth without being overbearing. Screw the 100% barrel aging - blending is the best way to go. This is a perfect example of it. And guess what? I did not have to stand in line at a release or trade my first born for it. Excellent beer with great balance and execution. I wish I had more of this.

(Bottling date: 10/4/2010. Thanks Tony!) Une mousse brune épaisse flotte sur un liquide qui a l’apparence d’un gros stout. Le nez annonce rapidement ses couleurs sucrées. Le caramel, la mélasse, la figue, le raisin sec, la datte et la vanille sont heureusement secoués par des notes de whisky piquant. Les saveurs sont harmonieuses: le mélange doux et amer est agréable. En bouche, le corps épais montre des bulles salvatrices. La finale est rendue relativement sèche par l’alcool. Une bière à siroter comme un dessert modérément calorique.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Near black in colour, thin but lasting beige head, good lacing. Aroma is fairly sweet, some dark fruits, alcohol as well. Flavour is quite sweet, some bourbon, alcohol, wood. Sweet hot mouthfeel, medium/light body, mild carbonation. Finishes long, hot and warm. A one-dimensional hot alcoholic beer.

"i love barrel aged strong ales and stouts, and enjoyed this one, but it ended up just a touch sweet and hot, and imo, relied too much on the rye whiskey barrels. besides a little dark malt and figiness, there wasn’t a whole lot else going on. still good, but at sub-4, not special, and not quite worth the price."

Long time want, super excited. Nearly black, 1 finger tan head. Full rich nose, booze, chocolate, oaky vanilla. Flavor follows pretty well, chocolate, oak, booze. Awesome beer, just what I was hoping for.

Advocate_Ames (581) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Aged 4yrs. Pours a reddish dark brown with a defined espresso colored head that laces my glass as it dissipates. The aroma is very complex. I noticed a semi sweet rye whiskey scent and the rye has a pleasant spiciness. In the aroma I also picked up on mild to medium levels of carmel roasted malts. As for tasting I noticed a complexity of sweetness with a subtle roasted bitter quality that blended rather well with the alcohol content. The finish was very kind considering the abv, the tamed bitterness, weak spice, and a diverse flavor of sweet malted grains. I enjoyed a soft dryness in the finish too. Overall I was surprised how well this aged and the carbonation was spot on to what I desire in a brew. I would definitely like to enjoy this one again.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown/caramel with a light tan ring head. Aroma has notes of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, and a slight sweet/spice. Taste is slightly sweet with caramel, rye spice, barrel notes, and a drawn out, spicy aftertaste. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Slightly thick body with a lively carbonation. Overall sweet with caramel, rye, barrel notes, with a big, dry finish.

Again 2010 vintage... The rye barrel aging really helps with balance, cuts through the malt and add more complexity. Still has that old aged notes that says I should have opened this a year or more ago.

bottle - Pours very dark amber with a tan head. It has an aroma of dark fruit, malt, and bourbon. The flavor is very sweet with ample bourbon character. Full bodied. The barrel aging was kind to this tasty brew.

This beer came out of nowhere. Well, not nowhere. The Brick Store Cellar where it had been aging for a few years. Pours nearly black with smallish head. Scent is a spicy mix. The flavor is sweet and reflects the blended nature of the beer. Thickish body. Served in cool glass. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Aged three years. Pours a lovely dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet molasses with hints of bourbon. Taste is sweet malt with a little molasses. After taste is clean with a little bitterness.
