On tap at Strong Ale 2011.
A: Black with a big dark brown head.
S: Earthy, nutty coffee with caramel and dark chocolate. Bourbon blends wonderfully with coffee and cocoa. Malt is strongly roasted with a slight burnt note. Oak is pronounced and vanilla lingers in the background.
T: Dark chocolate meets earthy black coffee, caramel, and bourbon. The coffee is really strong, but it doesn't overwhelm the barrel notes. There's a nutty note with oak and a little vanilla. I get a light astringency on the back end. Alcohol is well hidden.
M: Full body with upper moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky with a lot of warming.
Overall: Very good. This was probably the best beer at the fest.
Had a bottle of this at Lost Abbey today and the track version is every bit as good as the beer they made last year for Strong Ale. Just a crushing and devastatingly delicious beer.
Serving type: on-tap
