2009 version...11.2% ABV...70 IBUs
Jet black viscous pour into a Brooklyn snifter. Smallish mocha head with a good amount of bubbles that quickly dissipated.
Nostril tingling bourbon, black cherry, hot French roast Italian, and sultry vanilla bean aroma. Couldn't not stop smelling this brew. Complex and sexy.
Very bright and hoppy up front. Hard to tell the hop arrangement, with everything going on. But the hop flavor was very evident...floral and fruity. Maybe vanilla + hops early on? Somewhat creamy and delicious. This took a nice right turn into big bourbon flavor town with roasty coffee flavor riding shotgun. Sweet vanilla, warm bourbon, roasty finish...very satisfying.
This is the King of the bourbon coffee stouts.
