Bottle released around two months ago? Label simply reads "Coffee Framinghammer", no mention of barrel aging so I'm guessing this is different.
A: Pitch black pour with a big, very dense medium brown head. Head fades at a moderate pace. Heavy lacing and great head retention.
S: Coffee isn't super strong in the aroma. It's there but it's more of a sweeter mocha. Lots of sweet, creamy milk chocolate balances it out I guess. Overtones of vanilla and a light dark fruit presence as well. I guess this one isn't in fact barrel aged (at least nearly to the extent that last year's coffee framinghammer was). Once it warms fully you get a little more distinct coffee (still very sweet and chocolatey though).
T: Coffee is not overpowering here but has a really nice flavor. Lots of roasted coffee bean with milk chocolate to sweeten it up. Creamy with vanilla overtones everywhere. Coffee turns lightly bitter with some baker's chocolate in the finish. Long-lingering very earthy, bitter coffee beans between sips with just a hint of creamy vanilla.
M: Heavy, super smooth and creamy.
O: Really nice baltic porter. Great coffee and chocolate flavors. Great smooth drinking characteristics too. The bourbon from last year's version really set it apart but this one is quite good regardless.

Poured into a snifter
A- pours very dark brown, nearly opaque, with a small sudsy & bubbly light-tan head that reduces to bubbles around the rim, no lace with a few legs left behind
S- lots of sweet chocolaty notes up front with a compliment of toasted coconut. brown sugar, molasses, bourbon, oaky vanilla and a shot of hazelnut espresso
T- lightly roasty, brown sugar flavors mix with a licorice-like sweetness with notes of silky oats and oaky barrel juice, alcohol on the finish with lingers of coffee, bourbon and molasses
M- medium body with low carbonation produces a crisp mouthfeel with a smooth finish, light warmth on the linger, high drinkability for 10%
O- the aroma was more impressive than the taste, but overall very good. I didn’t pick up as much coffee as expected, rather more sweetness that bitterness
