Poured into darkness tulip 2-12-12

A: Pours a deep black with a dark khaki colored head that is about 1" deep.

S: Smells like fresh roasted coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of smoke and some booze as well. Don't get much barrel character but that doesn't detract from the nose.

T: This is where the beer falls apart. Tastes of coffee and ashtray. The burnt out cigarette flavor in my mouth is just not appealing to me.

M: Medium bodied with a slight alcohol burn. Smoky/ashy flavor lingers.

O: Loved the smell of this beer but the taste killed it for me. Not enough barrel character and too much harsh coffee flavor for me. Won't seek out again.

I feel I had to review this just because it seems fairly batch dependant. This was batch #27 and it was a coffee bomb. While I love coffee in beers this was more of a coffee with beer in it, somewhere? So take my end number with a grain of salt. It poured a very nice black with an off white head that was a little too pop like for me with next to no lacing. The smell was the best part of this beer, it smelled like a coffee shop, lovely. Too bad it tasted like a cup of coffee, very little cocoa and no whiskey barrel. it came across a little thinner than I like but nice. Overall this beer was OK. Would try again just not batch #27
