4.5/5  rDev -1.5%

Appearance: (4.5) - Pours a jet black color with a light khaki head that fades quickly. Minimal lacing. Very viscous looking. Big beer

Aroma (4.25) - Lots of coffee roast on the first whiff. Underneath, some vanilla, cream, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and a hint of caramel. Just a hint of boozy bourbon.

Flavor (4.75) - Flavor is beautiful and hits all over the map. Big, nicely balanced flavor. Coffee is big but doesn't overshadow flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, cream, vanilla, dark fruit, and booze. Hint of booze on the finish with lingering coffee and chocolate. A subtle bitterness keeps tames the sweetness. Superb.

Mouthfeel (4.5) - Rich, thick mouthfeel. Moderate bitterness helps balance the sweet components of the beer. Finish is long and a bit boozy with lots of coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel totally suits this beast of a beer.

Overall: Excellent beer. Maybe not an improvement upon regular Parabola, but a world-class BA coffee stout.

Reviewed from notes from CollaBREWtive Father's Day Brunch event @ Tiatro.

A: Pours a clear golden with a thin (1/4-inch) white head which fades to the rim and leaves a few spots of lace.

N: Roasted coffee, dark cocoa, hint of boozy bourbon,

T: Complex blending of softly mellow, low acidity, coffee with some fruity citrus and toffee. Slight molasses, smokey oak, bourbon.

M: Semi-full body and medium carbonation. Rich, lusciously smoot,h roasted coffee finish.

O: A delight. Keep it coming! Winner.
