Appears pitch black with a small light brown head.
Smells strongly of caramel and toffee flavored malts, toasted bread and coconut. There is also a mild vanilla oak like element to the smell.
The beer has a strong delightful toasted coconut flavor to it. The coconut flavor adds a smoothness to the beer. I get undertones of coffee, chocolate and caramel to the beer as well. There is a mild vanilla like flavor as well. The beer is very smooth. It is sweet but it is not too sweet and it has a nice amount of balance to it.
There is a low carbonation and it has a smooth mouthfeel to it.
Overall a fantastically smooth Barrel aged imperial stout. It is not hot like many barrel age stouts yet it has a nice oaky and mild bourbon flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
