4.4/5  rDev -2.7%

750 mL bottle served at 50F into a HF wine glass. Shared w/Brewinsue

A: As expected, pitch black. When held up to the light, only the faintest deep reddish-brown hues penetrate te edges of this bee. Thin Mocha colored head (1/2") dissipates quickly. Swirling won't revive it and this beer peaes no lacing in the glass. Tiny carbonatin bubbles are visible.

S: Roasted malt and strong rich espresso with blended tones of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, pecans/pralines and toffee. So different from the base beer ad the other BT treatments.

T: Mimics the nose. The nearly overpowering residual sweetness of BT is muted by the coffee and chocolate notes. Fresh baked brownies and a cup or coffee...this is truly a decadent dessert beer. The richness is fantastic, and the balance of bourbon and esperesso on the finish is lovely. Clean with just a touch of leftover sugar on the tongue.

M: Full bodied and heavy with medium-low carbonation, but that is to be expected. Slick, this beer coats your tongue and mouth. Not unpleasant though...and it grows on you.

O: Really wishing they bottled this in those 8 oz. bottles that Anchor used to use for Old Foghorn to justify a single serving. Very glad to have the opportunity to try this and I will be happy to share my remaining bottles with friends and family. Unique to be sure and though my taste falls to lambic, gueuze and saison of late, this is not to be missed.

A - pours near black with a dense finger of mocha colored head. Nearly non existant lacing. Good retention

S - pretty heavenly. Biig chocolate sweetness and mocha, minimal booze quite a bit of vanilla

T - so sweet roasty coffee not bozzy but considerable burn on the backend

M - full bodied min carb very smooth. Should be less drinkabke than it is at 19.2
