I brought the whole 2012 set to our monthly tasting.
A - Pours pitch black with a nice one finger tall tan head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace down the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of strong coffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, coconut, chocolate and smokey dark malt. The coffee is quite strong while still being balanced with the other aromas, very nice work.
T - Starts off with the strong fresh brewed coffee slowly being joined by some mild sweetness, - mainly the chocolate and vanilla - toasted coconut, smoked malt and warming woody bourbon. Finish is pretty roasty with some mild sweetness, lingering long after the finish. Not as well balanced as the nose but still really nice.
M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, roasty feel with some nice sweetness to even it all out. A bit of tannins and very light booze dry the palate at the end of each sip.
O - This was probably my favorite of the three, just barely beating out the vanilla. The coffee really accentuated the base flavors and yet it remained easy to consume. Glad I could try this one and share it with everyone.

16.9oz bottle purchased as a single from Adams Hometown Market, Monson, MA.
Poured into a DFH snifter, formed a 1/2" dark brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Frothy head fizzes away ever so slowly, with chunky slow-falling lace. Aroma is roasty dark grains with coffee and fruitiness.
Taste is dark maltiness to start, a touch of dark fruits in the middle, and coffee and alcohol to the close. Slight numbing after swallow. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, and drinkability is easy. Comes together nicely.

Looks like Framinghammer (no surprise) - dark with ruby highlights, fine tan/brown cap, lacing. Lots of coconut in the aroma, some roast and coffee, chocolate and malt, slight alcohol. Less coconut in the flavour, moderate bitterness with cocoa and malt, alcohol and chocolate, mild coffee and roast, balanced sweetness. Nice texture, creamy and smooth, moderate carbonation and full bodied, a little warmer than regular Framinghammer. Quite good, but the coconut in the aroma was turned up a little high in the balance.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black, but not inky. Medium khaki head.
Smell - A ton of coffee. A little bit of green to it. Sharp. Less barrel. Some bourbon though. Booze.
Taste - Nice bourbon. Coffee blends better. Dark chocolate, vanilla. Less of that nuttiness and oakiness.
Mouthfeel - Nice body. Chewy, but boozy.
Overall - I enjoyed this just as much as the barrel aged without coffee. The coffee is almost too strong, but well blended.

2014 vintage. 500ml bottle served in a tulip at 49 degrees. Pours darker than cola with a frothy, two-inch, khaki-colored head. Some lacing, but weak legs. Incredible nose - roasted coffee, bourbon, vanilla and toffee notes. Taste follows nose, but is not as rich and bold as anticipated. That said, everything coalesces together nicely without one aspect being too assertive. There's also a thread of milk chocolate that also weaves its way into the flavor profile and finishes with a robust, roasted coffee character. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a pleasant, even carbonation; however, the overall representation comes off a bit thin. One of my favorite styles, and this beer really holds its own. Not only one of the better Baltic Porters out there, but also one of the better coffee-based beers as well.
