BA Klaus

Finally crackin' this bad boy from DLD '12

Pours a deep black color with a surprisingly thick layer of mocha colored head. Sticky walls of lace.

The nose is full of rich, dessert-like flavors such as vanilla, dark fruits, coconut, and milk chocolate.

The flavors of this amazing brew are quite similar to the nose. Toasted coconut, vanilla, tannins, cocoa, and sweet butter.

The mouthfeel is full bodied with a mouth-coating oil that tickled the tastebuds for quite awhile after each sip. Moderate carbonation.

Overall, amazing brew that kinda reminds me of Vanilla Bean DL with less intensity. Pretty damn good and worth every penny at that. One of the better bourbon forward brews from the Floyds

Thanks to KevanB for sharing
Shared with JealousChalice, KevanB & Schmoopsbeer

App- It poured out a dark brown, almost black pour with a 1-1/2 finger dark khaki head with a good amount of stick and cling to it.

Smell- Its a basic baltic porter. Malty, bourbon and a little bit of chocolate. Really a bit one dimensional.

Taste- This ia one of those beers where there the sum is better. The malty base with a bit of spice and vanilla and chocolate paired with good amount of bourbon, creates a nice beer but not a great beer.

Mouth- Its a solid medium body with a medium carbonation. The bourbon creeps up on you and balances itself it out with a nice bit of vanilla from the bourbon.

Drink- Well Kevan. You won wale wars for tonight. A good beer. Just not sure if great. I enjoyed this one alot. Just expected more.
