Tried this for the first time at the Beer Fest in GR. On tap - 2014. The coffee taste takes over all the rest, and unfortuntately I am not a coffee person. Maybe with age, or warmer (it was 18 degrees out) it would taste different. I have higher regards to Bourbon County and Backwoods.
Cheers -

12oz bottle poured into red solo cup for the short-notice share with Justin and Morgan in FL. Black body with a thin brown head that fades to a wisp and ring. Aroma is as advertised, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, coconut and char from the barrel, solid roast malts. Flavor is excellent as well - sweet coffee and cocoa, moderate coffee and roasty bitterness. Medium-plus body, creamy, thick texture, soft carbonation, boozy bitterness on the finish.

This bad boy was on tap at Olive or Twist (Baton Rouge, LA) and was absolutely phenomenal. May not be worth searching far and wide for but definitely one of the best beers I've had.
