huge thanks to buzze40 for this beer in a recent IP trade! Thanks Brian! Really looking forward to another BA Kuhnhenn beer that I havent tried before!

poured into a tulip glass.

reviewed from notes taken 1/21/13.

Appearance: pitch black boided beer with a thin medium brown cap resulting from a hard pour. The cap on the beer quickly drops down to a small ring.

Smell: Huge coconut notes just off the charts coconuts! Barrel notes are huge as well oak and bourbon. Chocolate and vanilla with hints of leather and dark fruits.

Taste: Deep whiskey/barrel notes of coconut, oak, tobacco, leather, and a light char. Fudgy bourbon, with a hint roasty and smokey notes. Finishes with a touch of vanilla sweetness and bittersweet milk chocolates. This is awesome!

Mouthfeel: full bodied beer with low carbonation. Its such a great sipper beer. So smooth! Really silky as well. And it has the perfect amount of bubbles in this beer. Almost perfection! You honestly would not think its 18% unless you looked at the label.

Overall: What a monster BA RIS made by Kuhnhenn! This is way better than Avery's Uncle Jacobs Stout. I am beyond impressed by this beer brewed by Kuhnhenn. You could honestly sip on this for a long time.
