The aroma is licorice, chocolate, coffee, rye, Pours black with big creamy tan head and excellent lacing. The taste is a light sweet with some bitter at the end. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. A damn good beer!

Brilliant piece of work from the guys down in Sawyer. Bottle dated 12/14. Pour to snifter. Viscous dark and inky with 1/2 finger tight chocolate head. Booze in the nose but not overpowering. Nice dark creamy base beer with a nice bite and bitterness from the eye barrels. Small distribution. People outside of this area probably don’t know what they’re missing.

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled in 11/2015. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, toffee, cream, spicy rye whiskey, toasted oak, light smoke, and roast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and rye whiskey barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, toffee, cream, spicy rye whiskey, toasted oak, light smoke, and roast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate roasted bitterness and rye/oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, toffee, cream, spicy rye whiskey, toasted oak, light smoke, and roast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and rye whiskey barrel flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet and spicy rye balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast/oak bitterness as well. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding barrel aged imperial cream stout! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt ad rye whiskey barrel flavors; and very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the huge ABV. A highly enjoyable offering. JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle given to me by a friend. Darkest brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon, malt, chocolate and caramel. Malty and chocolatey flavor with some booziness and roast before a creamy finish.
