Black pour, bubbly brown head which quickly diminishes. Huge rich dark chocolate, deep red cherries, rye spiciness, mollasses, and all soaked in dry boozy whiskey. Like strong chocolate covered cherries, the barrel is definitely spicy rye wisky (no bourbon - vanilla notes). Boozy, but a good sipper.

A HUGE thanks to amtran87 for the share! Nearly a black pour, nice brown head. Aroma has some whiskey soaked cherries, bitter chocolate, light charred oak, nice rye spice. Flavor is like a chocolate covered cherry with some nice rye whiskey notes. The base beer, when I had it, was very metallic and tart. That seems to have been taken away with the barrel aging. Nice!

Bottle. Black pour with a froth of dark tan foam. Aroma is dominated by dry, rye whiskey with light vanilla and alcohol but underneath there is roast, chocolate, and light cherry. Taste is heavy whiskey up front with the base beer peaking out and showing chocolate, dry roast, a bit of cherry although it gets lost in the whiskey and a heavy dose of whiskey through the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light for the heavy whiskey influence but it’s clean and not imbalanced. Interesting riff on the original but having enjoyed a pint of the base beer a week ago I can say with confidence that I preferred that as much of what made the base beer interesting and tasty is drowned out by the whiskey. Worth a try.
