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.

very cool beer, one of the worst labels ever (different from the one pictured here). a blend of beer geek brunch weasel with another danish imperial stout, tons of layers to this one. the coffee, which i expected to be front and center, is way back behind a lot of the heavy roasted malts, and honestly i taste it more in the finish, after i swallow, than at any other time. it doesnt come out too strong in the nose either, i am surprised how subtle the coffee, which may well be the most interesting element here, is. tons of roast and girth to this, a little perfume in the nose coming from god knows where, floral out of place, but appetizing nonetheless. the flavor has some sweetness, caramel and dark chocolate before the coffee comes in. minimal bitterness is appreciated, and no acid at all from the coffee. not quite as complex as i was hoping it would be, nowhere near as interesting as the barrel aged brunch editions, but its a damn fine stout as it stands. i think the barrel aged version brings it to life a little more, especially in the feel, but both are excellent. easy drinking for its body and strength, this makes a fine dessert.

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.

Bomber size poured to a tulip dark brown near black with a small brown head. Aroma is big earthy coffee, definite hop presence with some pine, chocolate, more coffee. Flavor is interesting with big coffee and pine hops, roast, finishing with silky smooth and sweet milk chocolate. Has a bit of a metallic bent to it. Lingering cocoa and coffee on the palate. Silky smooth mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation and decent heft. Some dry bitterness on the finish. Solid brew, really wasn’t expecting the large hop presence.
