12oz bottle into tulip snifter.
big thanks to Stigs for sending this great extra!
Pours black with a chocolate head that dissipates quickly.
The bourbon and coffee are definitely the first thing I notice. In a pleasant surprise, this is not a total bourbon bomb as I expected. The coffee as well as some very earthy notes are quite present as well. It really reminds me of a chocolate covered espresso bean.There are also some faint oak notes.
The taste is a wonderful blend of bourbon, coffee and chocolate malts. The coffee is again of more earthy notes. And I am still pleasantly surprised with the upfront yet unobtrusive bourbon notes.
It has a bit of a thin body. It has just the right amount of carbonation. It is subtle yet not so light that it is flat.
Well I am very thankful that I now understand the love that this beer receives, though now I only want more! This was incredibly well balanced, and hid the 11% ABV extremely well.
