Beer pours an extremely dark creamy brownish/black with a thickly carbonated head of tan nearly a half inch. Enticing aromas of coffee, choclate, roasted oats, vanilla, espresso, choclate malt,and heavan.
Beer has been decanting for nearly 25 minutes with still the same half inch head as the initial pour. Very bold freshly roasted coffee flavors. Intense choclate espresso. Roasted oats, with an slight hint of pure vanilla extract hiding on the finish. Even a little bit of dark fruits in there prune maybe. Oh and that choclate roasted malt. Very satisfying and true to the name.
A good minute long finish with bold hard tannins. This is the first I've tried this beer and have had the Kentucky Breakfast twice. This one has more boldness and masculinity, although the Kentucky has much of the same the bourbon barrels have cut some of the in your face black coffee flavors back a little, made them a little tamer, and made that beer slightly more drinkable than this.
Still a terrific satisfying stout.
