22oz. Nice deep black pour, tan layer floats above and sags into the brew to give that layered look.

Aroma, about the strongest roast coffee I've smelled since Breakfast Stout. Some malt, dark chocolate, cocoa beneath.

Taste, Heavy roast again. Malt and coffee. More sweeter notes of chocolate, vanilla, toffee. Cocoa coffee finish. Whisky-oak is just present.

Fairly full bodied, the carbonation is just a bit too lively to give a creamy mouthfeel. Still coats very well. A faint warming but very under control for 11%.
At $13 it is worth trying, maybe not buying a bunch of. Wouldn't mind seeing what some time would do though. It's good, like a big Breakfast Stout, just not quite as all around good as Breakfast Stout, mainly because of the heat.

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
