3.9/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours jet black with a thin tan head. A decent sized ring is left around the edge of the glass on top of the beer.

Coffee is very prominent on the aroma with a lot of roast and caramel along with a healthy dose of chocolate which surprised me a little bit. A somewhat subdued vanilla not but I can't really detect much bourbon. Nonetheless a very inviting aroma.

The flavor has lots of coffee and caramel up front but not in as strong of dose as is present in the aroma. Almost no bourbon at all but rather vanilla, chocolate and caramel. All of the flavors are a little bit thin but they work well together. Roast and char lingers long after the other flavors have cleared up. Mouthfeel is quite thin for the style with a light bitterness and a lingering stickiness.

Overall, a good coffee stout but not on par with Founders Breakfast Stout and roughly the same price. If this becomes available in TN I will gladly pick it up because of no alternatives. In other parts of the country, however, there are better alternatives.

4.16/5  rDev +17.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Black glass shows some ruby edge when backlit. Holds a tight tan head of foam that laces well.

Smell: A bit boozy, barrel notes are strong, a bit a of black bread background shows some depth. Faint earthy hop notes too.

Taste: The Bourbon and Barrel aspects are front and center, but don't overwhelm the beer base, subtle grape esters give a doppelbock angle, the total package manages to come across as soft and easy, a rare trick when bring this much wood.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, low carbonation, almost cask level, finishes fairly clean with a little oil at the end.

Overall: Masterfully made beer. The brewers have dialed in the big flavors to a point where they pop without drowning out everything else, and everything else is really well made too! Manages to be an experience while still being very drinkable; great beer!
