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.

    Poured out totally black with a nice medium tan head. The aroma well there just isn’t that much. The mouthfeel is creamy and thick. The taste is well balance not overly sweet.Hard to believe this the 11.8 ABV is well hidden.

    Pours a real dark brown colour with very light copper-brown highlights. The head looks like a coffee head, mocha-coloured, decent size, retention and coats the brew a little. Soya notes over the roasted malts in aromas with some coffee, nuts, molasses and cocoa. The whiskey and wood eventually comes out over the sweetness. The mouthfeel is quite smooth with the alcohol well-hidden. It still warms up a little, but smooth and well-balanced. The taste shows dark fruits, like dates, with hints of the barrel, whiskey and a freshness of apples that lingers. This is quite smooth and nicely brewed.

    The beer pours a solid black colour with absolutely no head. The aroma of whiskey shoots straight out of the bottle while being poured. There are notes of vanilla, coffee, and dark chocolate as well, but the whiskey overpowers all. The mouthfeel is full bodied, very creamy, warming, and the carbonation is average. The flavour is dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of whiskey. A well balanced stout with a complex aroma from one of America’s better brewer and excellent value for the money!

    A deep ebony colored beer with a big creamy textured deep brown head rising above. There's some hang time on the head. A thin tinglet is left. Deep notes of alcohol and roasted malt in the nose. Burned caramel in the tasting. Full bodied and resinous slickness
