I know this review has been written before but I suppose I deleted it before posting it. Shame on me!
Pitch black once in the glass, it's the darkest mocha on the planet earth. Virtually no head which seems off for this beer, but not by much.
Coffee/espresso notes just dominate this. Vanilla/sour oak aroma in the back ground. Touches of dark chocolate, and burnt malt. This is just amazing...simply amazing.
Way too cold to start. Watered down coffee, oak, burnt malt, and chocolate...I'll wait to finish this till the flavors fully come out. The warmth builds on the flavors. This beer is a coffee flavored, bourbon kicking, chocolate laced, master piece. Sure there's some hop bitterness, mixed with the vanilla and oak flavors subtly mixed in. I like the bourbon county stout better, but this beer is just AMAZING.
This beer is a touch thin for the flavor profile, but the carbonation is extremely good. As a result this beer is just a wonderful sipper. Some beers suffer from the alcohol, this beer relishes from it.
The more I drink the more I suspect this beer simply will NOT age, so drink fresh like an IPA and savor it.
