look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle opened up at 4elf, 12/15/2013.

A- Dark cola brown body, very opaque, minimal mocha head with fair retention.

S- Lots of coffee and oak, a bit of whiskey. The base beer really is covered up here by the barrel and coffee. Not sure how I feel about this.

F- Gets better than the nose, but not by a whole lot. Coffee, barrel, whiskey, a bit of vanilla mixed in with some dark chocolate and roast malt. Coffee and bourbon are the predominant flavours here.

M- Medium body, low carbonation, slick and smooth. Bitter black coffee with cream on the finish, some warming alcohol.

O - Lots and lots of coffee with a good bit of whiskey barrel. Didn't get a ton of the base beer to be honest. I'm not sure I'm really impressed by this one but I will have to revisit it sometime.
