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!

Draft at The Bistro for their 5th annual Barrel Aged Beer Festival. Black, nearly opaque with a thin tan collar. Smells like an Irish coffee; lots of whiskey sweetness, cream and coffee. Similar on the palate, coffee and bourbon forward, again bringing to mind Irish coffee. The mouthfeel is quite thin, verging on watery. Very nicely balanced; roasted malt, coffee and bourbon are on equal ground. Pretty enjoyable stuff, this is sort of like KBS Jr. A fuller body would do wonders for this beer, however.
