Batch #10 - Cocoa Nibs and Coffee in Whiskey Barrels
A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some very dark amber highlights and a moderate amounts of visible carbonation near the surface. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy dark mocha head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer, a couple of small thicker patches, and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Strong aromas of dark roasted malts and green + freshly roasted coffee beans with moderate aromas of oak, whiskey, and cocoa. Lightly bitter in the aroma. Very light notes of vanilla and char.
T: Moderate to strong flavors of green and freshly roasted coffee beans with some more moderate flavors of roasted dark malts. There are some more moderate elements of oak, whiskey, cocoa, vanilla, and charred wood. Light amounts of lingering bitterness.
M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: This beer is pretty easy to drink considering that it is 12% ABV (roughly) and it is quite enjoyable - the coffee is very present but the whiskey barrel is not as much. Very enjoyable but definitely a sipping beer considering the strength.

Bottle pour at the Ithaca Luminous release.
Pours a thick, dark opaque black, with a mocha head of about one inches. Small little globs of lacing on the glass.
Smells include roasted malt, chocolate, and some vanilla.
The taste is similar. I think this is bourbon or whiskey barrel aged, but I'm not really picking that up. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, and some oakiness, molasses, Hershey's syrup, etc. Great taste, but a little subdued, I think. Still quite good.
Medium to full bodied, low carbonation, creamy, thick mouthfeel.
Another great stout today. This is turning out to be one of the best beer days I've ever had.
