Availability: Spring

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.

Good stuff, just not as great as I thought it would be. I figured it would be more smooth, being a lager, but it is good nonetheless.

my brother has really been coming through with the goods lately, so thanks man for pulling this one off. its as good as all the others, again blows me away that its a lager, and although the coffee is light on the aroma, its taste and contribution to the mouthfeel are very prominent. matte black beer, heady and thick, inviting like a guinness really, lighter head, but similar vibe. the nose is mild on the coffee, way more barrel and lager yeast here, vanilla is as prominent as it was in the vanilla edition, not sure how they got all that from the barrel, but they did. in the flavor, the coffee is darkly roasted, earthy, and bitter enough without being harsh. its smooth and full bodied, and the booze is invisible. i definitely feel it after half a bottle though! stunning in its depth, awesome in its slick richness and dry finish, like no other in the feel. the coffee does add a little acidity, but its mild and actually helpful here. the barrel is more pronounced in the nose than the taste, but it definitely adds that sweet oak to an otherwise dry finish. expertly made, this is one of the best series in beer right now!
