COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remy is a travel buddy whose life, at times, has rivaled that of the world’s most interesting men--free-spirited, adventurous, and with a penchant for fast women, whiskey, and beer: the perfect inspiration for something truly special. For Remy’s Pappy, we filled barrels from an exceptional bourbon distillery with our award-winning Imperial Russian Stout and let them sleep for many months. The transformation results in a beer similar to our original Remy: rich and roasty, with incredible flavors of marshmallow, coconut, and dark fruit, with additional layers of chocolate ganache and rare whiskey goodness. Enjoy!

Made specially for El Cerrito Market (Corona, CA).

Coffee, chocolate, a bit of vanilla, toasted malt, oak, brown sugar, and bourbon. Sweet but bit overly so. Rich and full bodied, creamy and smooth. Long bitter finish

Bottle shared by bytemesis! This guy is a beast at sharing bottles! Nose is vanilla and oak with a light boozy note. Some light fusels on the nose, seems like it will be hot. Taste is vanilla with some booziness as well. Light mouthfeel. Some more vanilla as it warms, but the spirit really dominates this beer for me. Seems like a beer flavored bourbon more than a bourbon aged beer.

Bottle, thanks to jcartamg! Shared at the Homer "welcome to California" tasting. Pour is opaque black, small tan head, dissipates quickly with decent lacing. Aroma is bourbon, cocoa, roasted malts, coffee, coconut. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, bourbon and chocolate, light toasted coconut and vanilla. Light astringence from time in wood. Medium light body, a bit hot on the finish. Nice.

barn0216 (396) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Cherry bourbon, alcohol on the nose. Strong bourbon notes, closely replicates the real thing but added sweetness and bitterness of beer. I think many people will be put off but if you like whiskey it is very good.

It’s the non sexy version of Rue d’floyd Lacks the chocolate richness and the creamy ’voice’ I would still take it on Over the best kind of Saison

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle shared at 4th of July BBQ (Lyons, IL). Pours again a deep blackish opaque pour, dark and ominous with decent legs on the swirl. Richer brown head stays as a fluffy layer, sticks around and laces ok. Aromas are richer roast and toast, decadent barrel shows some warmth, vanillin and toastiness. Roast, mocha and coffee. Some caramel, touches of marshmellow and coconut. Rich, really alluring stuff. Initial is firmer bodied, standing up better than it’s cousin to it’s barrel. Decent jabs of spirit intermix between firmer caramel, roasty malts, espresso and vanilla. Touches of roasty cocoa nibs meet some richer fudge, flourless chocolate cake and decent oak as we hit the backend. Rich, smooth finish from a good barrel pulled at the right moment. Lingering char and roast meet some coconut, vanillin and some gentle warmth as we taper out. Very nice stuff.
