3.81/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours dark as midnight, no light passes through, with a rich brown head that settles and laces reasonably well.

S: Dark chocolate, maybe some light maple syrup, a bit earthy, with notable alcohol.

T: Big chocolate up front, dark malt sweetness, a bit earthy, the alcohol is noticeable throughout, especially as it warms. It almost has a bourbon barrel aged quality to it.

M: Full body, relatively low carbonation, pretty creamy, with some warmth.

O: The potential is there for this one if it's given a chance to age and mellow out a bit, but for now it's just too hot with the alcohol.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Beer is jet black with a very bright white head. I found the smell to be decent but the taste was very odd. The only thing I could compare it to was nail polish. The beer hurt to drink. Tioga sequoia makes awesome beers with Rush Hour being better than any other coffee stout/porter out there but this one was very unpleasant. If you have one then maybe some age will smooth it out a little.
