Huuuge thanks to gockets (Reddit) for this amazing beer! Shared with rudzud and other friends at an awesome bottle share, really wish I could get more of this!

Pours a lucious creamy darker mocha colored 1 finger head which is lovely for the abv, it rises to the occasion and slowly fades back to norm with some decent lacing gracing the sides of the glass with layered lacing and long legs of delicious beer, even letting the glass get a nice share. The beer itself is so rich and dark, I think it could double as a liquid like version of the devil's leather jacket.

The nose knows how great this is too... it sure delivers, tons of dark malts, lots of cocoa and dark chocolate. There is a big dusty coffee and roast, fresh roasted coffee beans as well as an interesting dusty wooden shelf, like licking coffee grinds off an old shelf. Also there is some caramel, mocha, light oats even. The earthy roasted coffee just carries. It's not a normal coffee, it has this earthy but sweet like and dusty quality to it. I would love to try the coffee by itself too.

Taste is pure velvety chocolate, oh good GOD! Cocoa, dark chocolate, baker's and milk chocolate, etc etc. Creamy with oats and a bit of what seems like possible lactose? my endorphins are in full overdrive. Then tons of coffee, again that earthy fresh roasted coffee, chewy and bitter, like a french press coffee. A silky rich feel really comes out as well, tickling my tongue and giving my mouth an orgasm. It has an interesting almost sludge like coffee, with that dark chocolate really just berading my mouth with the essence of pure awesomeness. A bit of caramel and earthy hops round off everything else, with some bitterness, little char even, chewy oats, etc. Then again that dusty shelf, toasted oak, and light chewy barrel appear again, coming in waves, and bringing tons of vanilla that never goes away either. It has a long finish as well, I can taste it for about 15 minutes after the last sip. The finish does bring light bitterness, long fresh roasted earthy french press coffee again, tons of dark chocolate, more wood dust, and compact deliciousness.

Mouth is velvety silky and rich, very thick, it just sits on the tongue like mercury and seems like it's being absorbed by my tongue in the same fashion, and nice carbonation.

Overall wow, one of the best beers I've ever had, easily top 3!! So much awesomeness and orgasmic deliciousness. So wish I could get this all the time, or at least more than just the once time I did. The coffee is so unique, earthy, grainy, dusty, fresh roast flavors, etc. and some great chocolate flavors. the barrel additions are interesting with dusty wood, tons of vanilla, etc. The only reason it doesn't have a 5 overall, is the inconsistency of the growler pours... so I poured the glasses around the house, and a few of the glasses, including mine, the ones that got some of the bottom of the growler got these super estery dusty oak that was so overpowering it took away from the beer somewhat. However, the glasses that got all beginning or middle pour were so lucious chocolate and coffee, maybe the perfect beer... but with those discrepancies I had to take a little away from the beer.
