330 mL bottle poured into a Kate the Great snifter. Best by 9/2015.
Appearance - Viscous black with an ample mocha head. It gets quite murky in the end. Must be a lot of chunks in this guy.
Smell - Lots of coffee. Not much else coming through. Acidic coffee. Like an overbrewed pot of coffee. It honestly isn't that appealing.
Taste - Bright coffee flavor up front with a nice milk chocolate malt behind it. Tingly alcohol, but it isn't boozy. I wonder if that's the barrels they talk about. I get almost no barrel character or whiskey flavor, just a little bit of oak.
Mouthfeel - Chewy and hardly boozy for 12%, which I kinda don't believe. This is thick and viscous, but nary a hint of alcohol to it besides that little tingle.
Overall - Lots of coffee that masks almost all of the beer aroma and a fair bit of the flavor. Impressive mouthfeel, though. Well crafted in that respect and even pretty tasty, if you like a coffee bomb of a stout.

3.66/5 rDev -13.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Serves in a snifter at Ale Arsenal.
A: Black. No head. Reddish edges but opaque.
S: It smells sour, wine-like.
T/M: It tastes completely different. Booze, vanilla, hints of roasted coffee, grapey finish. Rather thin bodied, especially for the ABV.
O: Delicious, but not exceptional. I wouldn't have another, but it's definitely interesting.
Serving type: on-tap
