A: Opaque used motor oil.

S: Dark roast coffee, raisins, something almost like chili peppers in heat and the scent of vegetation; bourbon booze.

T: Espresso with sugar and rubbing alcohol heat.

M: Thick, syrupy, and hot.

O: I'm really glad I was able to try this. It's rich, it's dense, it's over the top, it's full of coffee, and I love coffee (especially Intelligentsia), far more than beer if I had to choose. But it's not as amazing as I'd hoped. Sure, the Bourbon County line sets a new bar; they're the most extreme barrel aged stouts. But perhaps they're not the best, the most nuanced, or the most complex.

This smells great. Wood, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, cinnamon, tobacco, maybe fig or something like that, and some other good stuff I can't pinpoint. Tastes something like a oaky, coffee, less-sweet port wine or something. I'm getting frustrated that I can't pick out all the scents and flavors, but it's pretty damned good. It'll probably come to me later. I'll finish here and continue to sip.
