Notes from 8/9. Bottle from the most recent release. Poured into a snifter.
A: 1/2 inch of khaki head which quickly dissipates. Deep, black body.
S: Milk chocolate. Sweet bourbon and coffee ice cream. Toasted coconut/almond joy. As it warms, there's more cocoa, some coffee, toasted coconut, and bourbon.
T: Cocoa to start. Toasted coconut and bourbon finish. Not boozy at all. A lot less coffee or bitterness than the BA Framinghammer. As it warms, I got more booze and toasted coconut.
M: Smooth and creamy. A lot less syrupy stickiness than the BA Framinghammer or PB&J.
O: Like the BA Framinghammer and the other variants I've tried, this is a terrific beer. Unlike the others, it's more of a dessert beer geared towards slow sipping.

Tried after PB&J variant, I think I love coconuts just as much or more than said sandwich.
A-Pours pretty like of of the Framinghammer variants. Dark, full and enticing. When agitated, the head grows to a respectable pillow if light tan foam. Lacing is a constellation of tan dots.
S-Impressive coconut aroma. There are also cocoa nibs added to this beer and I do get a bitter cocoa aroma. To me, the cocoanut and cocoa nibs are fairly balanced in the nose. Also, I dare not neglect the base beer which is ripe with oak, coffee and roast.
T-The flavor is unsurprisingly spectacular. I actually think this is the least harsh of the Barrel Aged Framinghammer varients I have tried. Sweet, fleshy coconut. Intense cocoa nib. Oak, residual chocolate, roast and noticeable vanilla.
M-I found this beer to be softer than its cousins. Booze hidden better. Lacks soft of the hedonistic values of its kin. Still feels sexy, though.
O-Hard to judge which one of these Framinghammer's I like the most. They are all so close together because the base beer never becomes overshadowed.
