2.9/5 rDev -30%
Bottle into Lost Abbey stemware.
Like mixed paint, dark yet thin. One finger of fuzzy latte-colored head lays atop like a fleece blanket.
Smells like mocha of the highest quality. Crumbly cocoa, espresso, vanilla, graham cracker.
Tangy. Has this gone sour? Coffee bitterness quickly becomes sour dark cherries. Mocha and oak can be picked up, but the tartness is overpowering. It's not totally bad, but it definitely doesn't belong.
The fleece blanket descriptor I used before might be better here. The body is smooth and creamy, the fizz moderate and tingly.
Wish the sour stuff wasn't here -- I'm sure this is a great beer when fresh.

4.08/5 rDev -1.4%
12 FLUID OZ bottle
Served in a snifter
A - It pour black with less than an inch of mocha head. There is some lacing.
S - The coffee was noticeable immediately. After some warming the bourbon begins to come through with caramel and vanilla.
T - The taste follows the same path. Initially, it was coffee. Approaching room temperature released the bourbon flavors. The coffee faded to the background while caramel and bourbon replaced it. A lingering bourbon aftertaste was the final result.
M - Smooth and full with low carbonation.
O - I haven't been this worried about an infection since that time I hooked up with a chick in the parking lot of a Red Roof Inn. Luckily, both instances were infection free. This is an excellent coffee stout, but the infection rumors had me apprehensive. I am enjoying this beer very much on a borderline chilly Independence Day eve.
