COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over-the-top but surprisingly approachable, this twist on the classic style starts with several types of malted barley, rye, oats and wheat. Robust flavors of vanilla, espresso, whiskey, chocolate and roasted grain are balanced by hints of date and plum, with just enough hops to round it all out. Roughly one-third of the final blend is freshly brewed beer; the rest is aged for up to a year (or more!) in both first and second use whiskey casks.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2018 Very dark. A bit red. Pretty strong whiskey aroma. Pretty boozy throughout but especially in the finish. Dark malts with a roasty earthy flavor.

cam0617 (92) - Colroado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2018
UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 12oz bottle at home. Pours black with a thin tan head that disappears very quick. The aroma is sweet whiskey with some coffee and vanilla. The flavor is sweet chocolate and vanilla, that finished with subtle whiskey. This is a very good and balanced stout.

Pours dark brown/back with very little carbonation. The aging gives a nice chocolate and coffee. Very good

Westy1130 (134) - New York, USA - MAR 17, 2018
Thin dark pour with a decent amount of head generation for an 11.8%. Aroma: toffee, oak, vanilla, cocoa bean and anise. Taste: caramel, vanilla, light roasted coffee, and a distinct fennel aftertaste. Impressive on it's own; but ultimately underwhelming for a barrel-aged.

jgb9348 (6780) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2018
Deep, almost perfectly pitch black coloured body with an oily glow on top along with a thinnish, single centimetre tall rich brown head. Aroma of pure whiskey, bourbon, peat, grain, alcohol, vanilla, honey, burnt sugars and a dose of licorice/anise as well - quite pungent in the nose, in a generally good way. Full-bodied; Rich licorice and anise flavour at first with a ton of pungent caramelised sugar flavours along with honey, vanilla, flowers, peat, malt, whiskey, bourbon, rum and a fairly sizeable amount of lactose. Aftertaste shows a very robust and complex flavour of alcohol and sugars with a lot of derivatives coming right behind with a good dose of anise and licorice breaking that mold a bit. Overall, a very nice, incredibly pungent and a good flavoured beer with a great kick still and a complex and well balanced and nuanced beer throughout - great to sample, and well worth trying if you can find this! I'm guessing the age helped this one quite a bit, and if I drank this 'fresh', I'd probably have a good deal lower score, just due to the punch it would pack. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Fairfax, Virginia on 17-February-2016 for US$2,99 sampled at home, just a bit two years later on 03-March-2018. Vintage on Front: 2015. Purchased: 17-February-2016 // Best By On Bottle: 06-August-2017 // Sampled: 03-March-2018

willisread (4207) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2018
Draft at Southern Grist - Nations. Pours a deep brown with a half-a-finger of beige head that leaves a ring. Chocolate nose with some vanilla oak aromas. Bourbon, chocolate, sixlet’s and creamy vanilla. Boozy, warming finish with a lingering cola-like texture.
