Pours very dark with tan head that dissipates very rapidly. Smell of cold coffee and unfortunately no bourbon or whiskey, kind of a poor smell. Dose not taste like a barrel aged beer, I get some coffee, some bitter acid and sour fruit. Mouthfeel is thin and overly carbonated.

Overall, not very good, would not seek this out and I think you'd be better off not trying this beer. Has a sour and bloody taste.

A- Pours pitch black in color with a small, 1 finger, tan colored head. Head retention is lacking, but there is a little bit of lacing.

S- Big, huge, dark coffee roasts and lots of burnt malt flavors on the nose. Coffee is the dominant flavor in the scent. Maybe just a touch of barrel character in the smell, but not much at all.

T- Coffee start out the taste as well as the scent, but isn't quite as dark and bitter as in the smell. Bitter and fairly strong, the coffee turns over to the burnt malts towards the middle. The burnt bitterness ramps up a little bit and the barrel makes a tiny appearance in the form of oak and spiciness. Burnt malts are the lingering flavor on the tongue after the drink.

M- This beer presents a lot of dark and heavy flavors, yet remains a reasonably sessionable beer. The 8% alcohol is not detectable at all and the coffee, while strong, is pretty palatable and delicious.

Overall, there isn't much barrel here, but this is still a very good coffee stout. Best of all, this beer is sold at a reasonable price, so if you want just a little bit of barrel in a coffee stout, this is a good option for you.
