Appearance- Pours a liquid coal, spent motor oil black. NO light can be seen through this eveil colored brew. But even after a hard pour with no glass tilting, hardly any head was yielded. A mild ring-o-foam was amintained throughout the brew.
Smell- Lots of coffee with some milky, creamy notes, smoked and roasted malts, as well as my old friend JACK.
Taste- Starts out with what taste like spent coffee grounds, but develops into something much more creamy and even slightly bitter. The coffee, vanilla, and bourbon barrel aging are very evident. Imgaine having a cup of straight black coffee thats been sitting on the hot plate for an hour with a spalsh of vanillas bean and a shot of JACK.
Mouthfeel- Pretty smooth and some very surprisingly noticeable carbonation. This helped to anhance the blackk coffee bitterness that I like in both my coffee and my beer.
This is a beer that deserves all the hype that it gets. This beer is awesome and I will definetly buy this beer again regerdless of the price. And I recommend all BA's who haven't had this beer get their hands on some of it.
