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.

55 IBU

4.6/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A-Pours very dark brown. Body is clear, however. A very aggressive pour yields a slowly dissipating army of tan bubbles. The head dies off significantly leaving very light lacing.

S-The coffee absolutely mollywhops you upon the first sniff. Just a cold cup of java. Behind the espresso and dark roast coffee is an oaky bourbon. Hints of chocolate pop up as well. They really nailed the coffee aroma here. The Vanilla Barrel Aged Framinghammer's nose was more complex but I actually enjoy this one more just because of how aggressive the coffee is here.

T-The coffee simmers down a bit here and let's the rest of the beer speak its piece. The bourbon is more vocal here, which is a great addition to the overall flavor. Don't be fooled, the coffee is everywhere. The oakiness and coffee remind me so much of an Irish Coffee. I find the Vanilla variant to be more complex but sweeter and less dynamic than this version.

M-It drinks too easily. The body isn't viscous at all. It has the flavor and alcohol of a big time Imperial Stout but it drinks like a beer half it's ABV.

O/D-The Framinghammer family of beers is exquisite. This is my favorite one...it's close, though! Trying the variant next to the coffee variant is a good time. I personally enjoyed this one the most but honestly, it's splitting hairs. Jack's Abby is a temple!
