'09 vintage. On tap at the 2011 BA Speedway and Decadence release. From three 3oz pours in taster cups.

Pours black with a thin film of sand colored foam, which persists in ring form for quite a while. Not much lacing to speak of. Smell is mostly bourbon and oak, a little vanilla; a nicely restrained aroma, though, and not at all overpowering. Not a lot of coffee or malt here, and definitely more mellow than regular Speedway. Taste is more balanced than the smell, with more of a coffee and chocolate presence along with the bourbon and oak, as well as some maltiness and sweetness. Finishes with a very slight coffee bitterness. Wow, super tasty and smooth stuff. Medium-full body and medium carbonation work great with the beer here; not much heat to speak of. Overall, this is a world class bourbon barrel age coffee stout, exceedingly drinkable, and which shows admirable restraint with the barrel treatment.

Serving type: on-tap
