3.25/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: very dark and opaque except right at the edges, small light-tan head.

S:starts off very coffee forward. For a little while during the warm up period there was a strong aroma of cigar smoke which was kind of off putting but that receded as it warmed more and became integrated with the coffee smell and a bit more pleasant but is still kind of hard to get past at times

T: dark roasted malts, again strong on the coffee flavor with a touch of chocolate. I start picking up a bit of vanilla from the barrels at the end and it becomes a little sweet.

M: on the thinner side of full. Lower carbonation

O: an alright beer. I agree with previous review comments that this strikes me much more as a coffee beer than a barrel-aged beer because the coffee is so dominant and the barrel characteristics so minimal. Maybe brewing with coffee and aging in the barrel with Haitian coffee as it says on the label is a bit of overkill. Would like to see them tone down the coffee and have a larger barrel presence.
