4.43/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Served in traditional mason pint jar
Tan head. Color is a deep brown, nearing black.
Flavors of coffee and roasted malts. The cappuccino flavor is incredible. Huge coffee, but light roast. Chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oak, rye whiskey. Tons of flavor. The barrel flavors are spot on. Just the right amount. No heat here.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, rich, creamy. Full bodied. Right about of carbonation. Ends clean.
Overall, this pint went down too fast. I wanted more, but had to drive. This is a must try beer and up there with BCS. Disregard the 4.0 on this beer and seek it out. Have a fair share, it gets better as it warms.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).
The very fine stout that serves as the base for this special edition gets a bit lost in this barrel aged version, especially the coffee. But this is, nonetheless, a fine barrel aged brew. The barrel effects dominate but are not overwhelming, leaving some dark roasted malts showing.
Has a fine smooth feel, although the alcohol shows more than I would hope.
Beautiful dark amber body is covered by a very durable beige head.
O: worth seeking out.

Mini-growler picked up at Brewer's Haven in Boise over the weekend... Poured tonight... Short lasting dark brown head... the brew is black and seems to be a little thin but has some decent legs.
Nose is a great boozy mix of coffee and coconut!! Coconut/dark chocolate is pretty amazingly out front. meaty and vanilla with lesser stout qualities..
Flavor is bigger boozy than expected, but not a deal breaker... again a pretty big coconut component with some whiskey/dark chocolate notes... vanilla and toasty oak move from front to back with the "stout" elements showing as milk chocolate and tying things together.
Body is a little light given the hefty ABV.. but still it seems pretty proper.
