Surprisingly smooth given the unbelievable ABV. Wonderful coffee notes in the aroma. But unfortunately in the tasting the roast coffee tends to overpower the more subtle hops and bourbon notes. All the proper elements are there, but somewhat out of balance. Surprisingly drinkable given the ABV with little alcohol burn. But was hoping for slightly more bourbon.

Black in color with no light penetration. There's a half inch of mahogany colored head. Brussels lacing. Enticing aroma of dark roasted coffee with caramel and just a trace of bourbon. The flavor is creamy sharply bitter coffee which pairs well with the sweet Bourbon flavor. There's slight bit of burn from the Bourbon in the fade. The mouth is creamy,viscous,and thick. This definitely drinks smoother than you would imagine. Phenomenal.

Ridiculous amounts of coffee somewhat mask the bourbon barrel but this thing is good! Drink about 50-60 degree

bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from an avery tulipy snifter.

a - brew pours a lush deep black. great shine...not midnight, the real middle of the night. thin creamy deep tan that hung around. super attractive. lush not sludgy.

s - nose screams awesome. deep rich gourmet coffee melded with godiva chocolate...everything is in the right place. this is what mocha wednesday wishes it was. the wood comes across in a big way and is just right.

t/m/o - WOW! huge beer. everything the nose said is turned up to 11 on the taste. the first thing i noticed was the silky feel with such lush chocolate and robust gourmet coffee. big and boozy, but more than manageable. avery really does these big beers so well. the price point is tough, but they almost always make it worth it. this one is no exception. you like coffee bourbon barrel aged stouts you say? then this is a MUST try.

This is definitely a beer I would consider aging before opening. The alcohol and bourbon flavor definitely overtakes the coffee stout flavor, which is barely present.
