look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: A finger and a half of dense kahki foam was produced when poured into a snifter. Long retension, the bubbles are small at first but reveal larger as it falls. Pitch black beer with no light coming through even around the edge. Nice lacing with each sip.
S: Clean wood aroma, like walking into a wood shop not the typical oaky barrel aroma. Moderate roasty coffe aroma with a boozy punch in the background. Dark cocoa also detected at warmer temps.
T: A mellow vanilla oak flavor upfront with a solid roasty and dark coffee flavor malt taste blended with a tobacco and burnt sugar (caramelized toffee?) flavor. Chocolate flavors in the after taste are rich and plesent. sweetness is moderate and hop flavors next to zero but the bitterness is balanced.
M: A big chewy body with a cleaner finish. Carbonation is moderate with a low level of alcohol warming. A ashy roast sensation is left on the tongue.
O: I really liked the after taste in the beer with the chocolate flavor being very rich and interesting. The barrel and coffee is very light, probably from being a blend, but if I didn't know it was either I would have thought it was a solid stout.

This pours a dark coffee cola with a cocoa colored foam cap.
I found light notes of raisins and plums, oddly enough, with a hint of rummy booze. It doesn't smell very coffee-like, to me. I get more booze/rum in the nose. The flavor is astringent with some harsh coffee notes come across initially, but mellowing out over time. Sharp roast and a drying finish round things out. At first I found it off-putting but over the course of the sipping session it grew on me.

Pours basically a black body (no dark brown in the light here) with a rather sweet aroma as I get touches of vanilla, chocolate and caramel before my nose is bombarded with roasted coffee malts. While I would say that the coffee is the dominant taste in this beer, it is subdued at times and gives way to a sugary sweetness (vanilla, chocolate, caramel). Balance is good and there is a hearty, dry finish to a rather smooth beer.
Serving type: on-tap
