Picked this up from a great trade with Evan. Release #12, July 6, 20133. Thick pitch black pour with a one finger caramel colored head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is rich and roasty with huge coffee notes along with hints of dark chocolate, espresso, cocoa, bourbon, and subtle smoke. The taste follows suit, with the coffee once again being the star. Hints of bourbon, cocoa, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, subtle piney hops, and a touch of licorice. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy, smooth and velvety, with excellent balance and huge drinkability. Overall, this is one of the best coffee stouts I've tasted. Definitely in the same league as Founders Breakfast and Bourbon County Coffee.
