Growler from Greenville Beer Exchange. Pours a dark brown with a white head. Nose is whiskey, cherries, slight chocolate, and some yeast and esters. Flavor is similar with cherry and chocolate pushing the whiskey to be the first one through the door, but the whiskey is a large child with a head start, so it gets there first and stays there. Some vanilla, yeast, and more whiskey with bits of booze in there as well. Light in body for the style and interesting overall.

Draft. Pours near black with a thin head. Sweet and roasted malty aroma with more sweet bourbon. The flavor has bourbon, light roasted malts, toffee, and molasses. Not bad.

Like most bourbon barrel aged beers, the bourbon is too strong here. The aroma is bourbon, chocolate, some roast. The appearance is a deep balck, almost no head. The flavor is bourbon, chocolate, molasses. The finish has some chocolate sweetness, but is mainly bourbon. Very good beer. Again, the bourbon sort of overwhelms everything else.

I didnt love this one...typically anything in a barrell is better, but it seemed to thin this one out. Perhaps it didnt have to body to go through aging well? I dont know...I like the regular black better.

Draft at "Battle of the Brews", Allagash vs. Uinta at Scion in DC June 1st. Glad to try this rare beer. Pours a nice black color. Aroma is very very bourbony. I enjoy the stout maltiness and bourbon, but too boozy for me. Well made, but I prefer original Allagash Black.

On tap at Cask Republic, New Haven. Stillish black pour, very oily but somehow a bit thin-looking. Nose was very sharply boozy, which initially put me off given its distance from what I enjoyed about the regular Allagash Black. But beyond the nose, the beer was more mellow, balanced, and enjoyable. Body suffered a bit from the lengthy aging, I reckon, as it was a bit thin and overly slick. But the flavor was an improvement, with deep chocolate, espresso, and whiskey blending enjoyably.
