Generous pour at Three Kings. Thanks Jay!

Pour is dark dark black, small light mocha head, on the thicker side of medium-bodied.

Smell is heavy roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, hint of spice, roasted malts.

Taste was really heavy on bitter, french roast, really dark unsweetened cocoa, a hint of milk chocolate, a little bit of spice from the barrel. Surprisingly low barrel presence. It definitely enhanced, but did not at any point overtake the whole beer. Nice mocha flavor, but I would have appreciated just a hint more sweetness, as this pretty heavy on the roasted notes.

Mouthfeel is medium-thick, chewy, low carbonation. Really great for the style.

Wow, 4 Hands really nailed it with this one. Got the adjuncts just right, great flavors, perfect balance. Wish I had a bottle to cellar.

Wow! Two stage head off a hard pour. Drinks chocolate, vanilla then finishes with a strong coffee bitter. In that order! There is a very noticeable transition between the three big flavors. Great beer overall! ISO more!
