Split this with my wife on a snow day/Valentines Day. Served in 2 snifters.
A: Black as night, with more mocha head than I was expecting, especially considering the barrel-aged status.
S: I got a shit ton more blueberry smell on this version of the Sidamo….. almost crossing into Aud Bruin territory. Not much coffee and maybe a hint of coconut.
T: Silky, lots of vanilla, and still a hint of those blueberries. If you're looking for coffee, look elsewhere. The barrels turned the Sidamo into an Almond Joy bar.
M: A few bitter notes started to slap my palate after about the 4th sip or so, but nothing to write home about in that regard. Silky, smooth, and foamy, like a Frappuccino.
O: My wife liked the regular Sidamo better, but I prefer this one. To each their own, I guess. Excellent stuff.

Bottle shared by Umberto at Curran's tasting.
Pours a very dark brown, basically black, with a one inch mocha head, and a medium amount of lacing.
Smells like chocolate liqueur, bourbon, roasted malt, and a bit of coffee.
Thankfully, the coffee is stronger in the taste. There is some smooth, well integrated bourbon, rich chocolate, along with some mildly bitter, slightly nutty coffee taste. There is the smallest tart-ish twang at the end of each sip from the bourbon and coffee.
Medium bodied, could be slightly thicker. Fairly drinkable. Low carbonation. Very creamy mouthfeel.
Yet another awesome BA stout consumed this past weekend, I think this one's a little better than the ratings suggest.
