Pours a nice, medium-brown sticky head, with very good retention and thick lacing. Brew is super dark black, with hints of purple.
Aroma: dark, over-roasted black coffee instantly springs to mind, with a slightly tart oak barrel behind. Coffee beans, grapes, cream, oak. A hint of chocolate.
The nose may not be overly complex, but everything is present in the flavor. Dark black coffee (French roast? Difficult to say), vanilla, chocolate malt, roasted barley, cream, with whiskey, hay, and oak on the back end. Surprisingly subdued from the BA aspect; not at all surprisingly strong on the coffee side.
Very thick and chewy mouthfeel; lively with minimal sting; full, full bodied. Slight foaming, and slight heat. Excellent!
This is a complex BA coffee stout that seems to do everything very well. The coffee flavor is very strong without overpowering everything else; the barrel adds complexity without dominating; more traditional stout flavors are present. Very nice beer.
Thanks to JayORear for providing this excellent beer.
