4.01/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

extra from trade with StPaulSuds, thanks bro. this years release in a 22oz bottle poured into a FFF Teku.

a: dark brown pour with a 1 finger tan head, moderate retention and lacing with a rimming around the glass.

s: mainly coffees and malts, not much bourbon at all.

t: coffee is present but a little stale. roasts malts are present. no bourbon on the taste, but barrel character does come in late. no heat on the brew.

m: low carbonation, medium body. not thick like I'm accustomed to with an imperial stout. dry finish.

o: this be talks a big game with the description on the bottle. unfortunately, doesn't really deliver. it is good as a coffee stout, but you don't get much barrel or any bourbon favors. hope is didn't cost too much - would drink it again but not for more than $0.25/oz.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22oz bomber poured into Duvel tulip.

A: Pitch black with medium mocha colored head.

S: Sweet roasted malt, coffee, and molasses. Not much here really.

T: Burnt coffee stands out above all. There's a good roasted taste with vanilla, coconut, and a slight fruitiness. There's an almost perfect amount of underlying sweetness and booziness.

M: Medium bodied, low carbonation. Has a soft and creamy feel.

O: Very smooth and drinkable. A definite recommendation for coffee stout lovers.

4.15/5  rDev +2.2%

Smell- Is everything you expect you get the coffee right away. You can smell the barrel a little bit. I like that it's not a burnt coffee smell.

Taste- You can really pick up the coffee and enjoy that right away as that fades you pick up the whiskey and the barrel. Almost get a mint taste as well very refreshing. It's nice to have a more mellow BA beer every once and awhile.

Overall- The only real knock here is the mouthfeel. It just feels thin, I wonder if that is intended and just how BA milk stouts come out. Used to the mouth feel of RIS, this one is considerably thinner I wonder if they will try different barrels next year.

Bottom line pick one up, great after dinner beer.
