Hold on to yerr pants, cause this one is a doozy!

Look: Dark and viscous with no light able to permeate my glass. Poured rather aggressively, this beer yields a dark mocha, finger sized, head. Beautiful!

Smell: Looking for a little more coffee here personally, as the nose is dominated by bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate notes, with very faint coffee.

Taste: Luckily the coffee shines through here. The vietnamese coffee makes this beer creamy and rich. After the coffee comes beautiful layers of bourbon, chocolate, and vanilla. Slight roasty bitterness with more coffee on the finish. Not overly sweet. Very drinkable and leaves me wanting more every time.

Feel: Thick, creamy, and viscous. Perfect.

Overall: Given all the hype around it, this beer continued to exceed my expectations. One of the best barrel aged coffee stouts I've had, if not the best. I think there is a certain temperature that this beer drinks really well at. If it's too cold, you lose most of the bourbon. While as it approaches room temperature, all the coffee flavors give way to the bourbon. So it's probably best to not let it get too warm.
