I'm not good with all the fancy descriptive words, but it tastes a lot like those coffee-flavored hard candies.

Tasted 2013 vintage against 2014. Both were fantastic, but the freshness of 2014 blew 2013 out of the water.

2013 vintage. Very similar to bcbs up front. Nice syrupy bourbon flavor with a charcoal backbone. The improvement of this over the original is the coffee aftertaste. It rounds out the beer so well. Fortunate to have had the chance to try this. Merry Xmas!

Drank a 2013 Coffee from a bottle after aging 13 months.

L: Pitch black, pours like motor oil, little to no head, but what head there is is richly brown/red.

S: Rich, roasted, bitter coffee is the singular aroma, with bourbon tingling the nostrils. Evokes memories of coffee steam in the morning.

T: Absolutely at its best when it's nearly at room temperature. The coffee and bourbon notes play off one another beautifully throughout, one never overtaking the other, making for a wonderfully complex beer.

O: Typically my favorite BCS, I drank this immediately following a 2014 Vanilla Rye, which was magnificent but far less boozy than the 2013 Coffee I was drinking. Maybe 2013 was a boozier year for BCS?

2013 cellared one year

Pours thick viscous dark black in color with a rich mocha tan head that retains nicely. Smell is incredibly rich with decadent aromas of coffee, chocolate, fudge, sweet vanilla, with hints of cherry, toffee, graham cracker and oak in the end. Taste follows the nose with rich flavors of bakers chocolate, charred malt, espresso, vanilla, cherry, oak and bourbon in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick rich semi sweet mildly carbonated and incredibly smooth.
