Notes/Commercial Description:
Big, bold, black and barrel aged. A length conditioning period in bourbon barrels creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. Additional flavors include bourbon, vanilla, and oak.

Drank from a 1 pint .9 fl. oz./.5 liters bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors, Westboro, MA
March 2013 vintage
Served in a snifter

A tight, creamy, bubbly, one-finger, mocha colored crown topped the dark brown liquid. The head quickly fell to a film of large bubbles. Sheets of lacing initially coated the glass with every sip. The lacing eventually transformed into spotty drops.

Intense coffee notes dominated the nose. Somewhat roasty and espresso-like. Freshly ground espresso beans came to mind. Super smooth and fragrant. A touch earthy. Aside from the coffee, I also picked up some brown sugar-like sweetness along with hints of vanilla. Mild bourbon notes appeared as well.

Like the nose, the flavor profile was also quite coffee-forward. Tons of freshly ground coffee beans. Some espresso-like earthiness. Lots of dark, roasted malts and brown sugar sweetness. Caramel notes came through as well. Bourbon appeared on the back end and in the finish and lent a pleasant alcohol warming. Earthy hops and roasted malts were also noticeable in the finish. Overall, quite well balanced.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Slick, creamy and smooth but slightly thin for the style. The liquid contained a fine, moderate carbonation.

After trying Framinghammer and Bourbon Barrel Aged Framinghammer and being hugely disappointed by both offerings, this beer really surprised me. The addition of coffee really rounded out the flavor profile and gave this beer the balance and complexity that the other versions lacked.
