Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Label says Release #20.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and some bubbly surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves tiny specs behind.

S- Good shot of dark roast coffee plus some vanilla and chocolate. Hardly any alcohol fume or barrel presence.

T- Dark roast coffee is heavy on the palate. The barrel is detected a little now, as is the booze but the coffee smooths everything over so well. A slight lingering bitterness. Man, this is some drinkable stuff. Even after multiple sips, the heavy malt, coffee and alcohol never reaches a state of imbalance. Remarkable. Semi-sweet but, in comparison to other coffee beers, this one is very low on the sugary scale.

M- Slightly creamy, sticky and thick with medium-low carbonation and the fullest of bodies.

O- While I was struggling to find the barrel's influence in the flavor profile, everything worked together just about perfectly in this one.
