UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 Bottle #704 1/18/2013 from Voodoo Barrel-room release. Poured black with basically no head. Crazy good aroma of sweet mellow Pappy. Slightly hotter than the Buffalo Trace BM. Quite smooth choco pappy flavor. Gets smoother as you sip, extremely complex.

Unfortunately from short notes that won't do this fantastic beer justice.
Thick and syrupy delicious black oil pour. Nose is amazing! Sweet maple syrup, molasses, cereal grains seem to dominate. Some rich dark chocolate, vanilla and caramel. Thick rich body with a fantastic full palate. Complex and subtle. Taste is all the things on the nose amplified. Nose is more barleywine , while the taste is richer and sweeter. Really nice stout.

Bottle at James’ 10k tasting. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head around the edges. Big roast over warm sweet vanilla and bourbon. On the thicker side, warm roast, warming alcohol. Big vanilla and wood, sweet and chocolate filled. Cocoa, warm roast into the finish. Nice stuff.

Amazing Pappy variant, that is just right behind Rare. Smooth and sweet bourbon with a bit of spice that lingers long enough to make you want more.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by ForgetFu at the Kulminator - thanks Bill! Pours deep deep black with a dark brown hue, no head. Intense nose of vanilla, dark roasted malts and... cinnamon, yes cinnamon (ginger bread almost). Palate is oily, no carbonation and too much alcohol warmth for me. Taste of rich dark malts and roasted coffee beans together with a tad of that sticky sweetness make up for it. Good, not great.

Woodshed 3.0! Big thanks to dak for saving this whole series and sharing with us. Awesome!! Bottle pours with a dark looking body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up chocolate, brown sugar sweetened dark roasted malts, marshmallow and smooth bourbon. The taste delivers smooth goodness in the form of lots of residual sugars, chocolate, dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, smooth sweet bourbon booze and then more chocolate. This is smooth, richly sweet and just yummy.
