Release # 28 Poured into a stone snifter.

Pours dark dark black but not with motor oil thickness, So much coffee and chocolate my brain is in spasm. Taste is similar with some roast and sweetness, but balanced bitter finished. Coffee Coffee Coffee. This is a coffee blowout!

Release # 23 - drank 5/10/14

Lots of coffee. Coffee tastes a little older from the age maybe? No barrel notes to speak of which is disappointing. Release #28 was better.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A 4.5 - pitch black beer with a mocha head that sticks and leaves surprisingly good lacing for a high abv beer
S 4.5 - dark chocolate, cafe mocha, espresso, bourbon, smoky, roasted malts, a very "dark" beer by all means
T 4.75 - the taste on this beer is phenomenal, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, espresso, roasted grains, smoky, cream, whole milk, wooden barrels, some bourbon but surprisingly light on that. It reminds me of well aged Bells Expedition stout (1.5-2 years)
M 4.75 - again, heavy as can be - a hot fudge milkshake in beer form. alc completely covered. Aftertaste is smoky, espresso/dark chocolate.
O - 4.75 - damn. The downside is the price tag at ~12/bomber? But its damn good and better than most beers that charge even more.
