4.53/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
As a coffee addict, this beer had me sold just by the smell. A strong whiff of espresso, cocoa, alcohol, and vanilla. Color was deep black with no light escaping.
Bold taste of espresso, cocoa, and alcohol/malt, but not sharp at all. Quite mellow, balanced, and easy to drink...slowly. Slight hint of oak and vanilla in the back.
If you like coffee, this is a fantastic beer for you.
Serving type: on-tap

3.94/5 rDev -9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a pitch black color capped by an inch of tan foam; a smattering of lace is left behind
Smell: Ashy oak and burnt coffee beans with bittersweet chocolate undertones
Taste: Scorched black bread and "Charbucks" coffee, up front, with bittersweet chocolate building, in the middle; after the swallow, the Whiskey barrel treatment adds weight and a hint of vanilla; somewhat boozy in the finish
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet
Overall: Normally, my reviews mark down beers for having to much sweetness but, in this case, I think the beer would have benefited from some sweetness in the malt to balance out all of the char and burnt flavors; not a bad beer but just my two cents
Serving type: bottle
