On tap at HopCat's wood aged festival

A: Pours a light brown with little head.

S: Bourbon and coffee.

T: Loads of bourbon upfront followed by slightly sweet coffee. The booze is light. The finish and aftertaste is a very nice coffee.

M: Medium body with weak carbonation.

O: I liked the finish on this. Needed more carbonation.

On tap at the Black Squirrel in DC. Served in a taster glass. Pours a very dark brown with a thin light mocha head and some spots of lacing. The nose carries a heavy dose of bourbon on top of a bit of chocolate. A bit of roast and vanilla in the background. Flavor is similarly dominated by bourbon, making this a bit one dimensional, yet still nice. Body is medium-full with low-average carbonation and a bit of booze through the finish. A fine enough barrel-aged beer, but not something I’d seek out again.

On-tap at Blue Palms

A: The beer pours a very dark brown color with a small, soapy, off-white head.

S: Bourbon comes through on the nose along with a somewhat mild coffee aroma (despite being a coffee beer). As expected, a bit of vanilla and a strange spice note of cinnamon, but it goes nicely with the bit of oatmeal cookie and toffee aromas.

T: On the palate, the vanilla stands out quite nicely with the bourbon flavor being a bit less pronounced. Some mild fruit notes and a fairly minimal coffee flavor. A light oatmeal sort of flavor along with molasses, toffee, and a mild spice.

M: Unfortunately, the body is a bit light/thin. The carbonation is on the lower end of medium.

O: Good aromas and decent flavors, but sort of lacking in terms of mouthfeel.

On tap at the Black Squirrel the other day. Beer is brown / black with a thin brown head with no lacing and a little retention.

Aroma is boozy and strong with a big big presence.

Beer is relatively thin and the beer is all booze all the time. It is strong it is all liquor and a little sweet. Overall it is a fine beer but not a great barrel aged beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glas.

Look – jet black, as one would expect, but with a very thin layer of khaki-colored foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell – thick, syrupy, roasted type of quality. I don’t smell a lot of coffee bean in it, or at least not initially.

Taste – strong bitter taste from the hops right from the get go. But the coffee flavor actually seems to help mellow out the bitterness a bit, at least in the middle of the taste. The bitterness comes back in the finish though.

Mouthfeel – pretty well-balanced overall, with a filmy aftertaste.

Overall – not a bad tasting brew at all, and decently interesting to think about!
