My ratebeer.com rating: 4.2

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 7th July 2020. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: It was black in colour with a half finger mocha head that dissipates quickly while leaving some sparse lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, pecan, caramel and whisky with hints of vanilla and cognac.
Taste: Sweet milk chocolate with a nice pecan nuttiness. There are also hints of oak, cognac and peat.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: This particular bottle was nice and tasty, but I don’t think that the barrels improved the base beer. It should be noted that this beer has had it’s share of infection. This is my third bottle now, of which I’ve had two good and one infected. The infected bottle clearly tasted sour and was just not pleasant to drink. You will know if you have an infected bottle, so I guess it’s a bit of the luck of the draw at this point.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th December 2018. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass.
Appearance: A cloudy purplish red colour with a one finger pinkish head that dissipated quite quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Cherry, raspberry, lactose and yoghurt.
Taste: A bit light, but its sweet and sour cherry with a light hint of yoghurt.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I liked the aroma, but its taste was slightly on the watery side, yet surprisingly medium bodied. Having said that, it definitely grew on me the more I drank it. I would get this again.

My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.56
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.5

Intro: A 330ml bottle (gold cap, bourbon ba) with a best before date of 20th July 2023. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: It was a black colour with pretty much no head or lacing.
Aroma: Strong bourbon, vanilla and brown sugar with hints of coffee, star anise and marshmallow.
Taste: Liquorice, bourbon, chocolate, coffee, oak and vanilla. There is a slight smokiness on the finish and also a hint of dark fruit.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: I’m not sure what happened here as I normally enjoy Omnipollo stouts much more. For me, I think there was just too much liquorice and bourbon which overpowered everything else.

My ratebeer.com rating: 4.3

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 7th July 2020. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: It was black with a dark brown hue, a thin dark brown head that dissipates quickly and sparse lacing.
Aroma: An amazing pecan pie, chocolate, caramel, toffee and whisky aroma with hints of vanilla.
Taste: Sweet-ish chocolate, pecan, cocoa, toffee, vanilla and lightly bitter dark chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Overall: Superb aromas and nice taste, but for some reason the taste was a bit short and abrupt. I think in this case I definitely prefer Yellow Belly, but this was still interesting.
