Second of the Framinghammer set opened up with the boys as we settled Catan. Had the vanilla first and, seeing as I love coffee in my beer, we finished off the evening with this one. Poured a few ounces from the bottle into a Voodoo Barrel Room tasting snifter.
A- Opaque with a thin head that does not stick around for long. Very dark with a touch of light breaking through on the edges.
S- This smells impeccable. Coffee forward on the nose, followed by lots of chocolate and finished off with some bourbon and brown sugar. What a nose. Keeps me coming back for more. I guess I'll have to taste the beer eventually...
T- Fresh coffee, chocolate/bourbon, coffee, roast/chocolate. All these flavors make their appearance in that order. So flavorful and rich. A criminally balanced beer here, as there are sweet flavors cut well by the roast and coffee.
O- Between the vanilla an coffee, this was favored by all of us. A splendid melange of flavors that get to the heart of what I love in a big, dark, barrel-aged beer. I have had better, certainly... But this is a top-notch beer. A great offering in all respects.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.
Pours a dark brown, close to black, with a quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.
Smells strongly of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, a little bit of vanilla, and oak.
The taste is similar. Strong, bitter roasted coffee beans are a dominant flavor. Excellent. A bit of bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. Very smooth, with intense flavors melding together well.
Medium bodied, similar to the mouthfeels for all the other Framinghammer variants. Low carbonation.
Probably the best Framinghammer variant, excellent stuff.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee bean, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, coffee, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice mix of coffee and bourbon aspects all around.
