2012. Pours pitch black with a lasting mocha head. Lots of coffee, chocolate, and bourbon on the nose. Chocolate and coffee on the front of the tongue with hints of vanilla, bourbon, and oak. Full bodied. Lack of carbonation adds to the creamy mouthfeel. Overall, one of the best coffee stouts I've ever had.

Pours a massive thick black with oily consistency and no head present. The nose starts with a smack of deep roasty coffee with heavy chocolate, coffee ground, vanilla, dark fruit, and charred oak. The taste is quite sweet up front with healthy doses of chocolate coffee and vanilla. The coffee has a nice earthy and distinct profile, the barrel smooths things out. Mouthfeel is super heavy with mild carbonation. Overall, delicious and big!
