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.

A very dark shade of brown. Not quite black in color. Still a bit translucent around the edges. Forms a smallish darker tan colored head that fades away fairly quickly leaving just a trace around the edge. Minimal lacing. Aroma is wonderfully potent: coffee, espresso, dark fruits, dark chocolate, and alcohol. Taste is also pleasant, but falls off a little. Again, there is coffee and dark chocolate along with a moderately sweet dark fruits and a rich maltiness. But the flavor seems somewhat thin, presumably from the alcohol. On the heavier side of medium. Lower carbonation. Mild bitterness. Overall, a very nice beer. Complex yet drinkable. A great complement to a chocolate-centric desert.

500ml bottle poured into a snifter

Pours a deep dark chocolate brown with thick one finger taupe foam head . quickly settles into a thin taupe layer of bubbles. No lacings

Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, raisins, coffee, roast malt and oak

Taste of coffee and chocolate on the tip of the tongue. Alcohol on the back of the tongue but not overbearing. Black coffee finish.

Velvety smooth, low carbonation. Sip and savor.

Another excellent baltic porter from jácks abby. I'll definitely buy more and store in my beer fridge. I suggest you do the same.
