3.89/5 rDev -4%
Gravity fed firking poured into a snifter. The brew appears black in color with a minimal tan head that is only present when swirled. It holds around the edges with some big bubble formation but is a bit lacking.
The aroma is roasty with earth and oak. Some additional booze comes out but it really does not present much more than your typical javahead offering. This was advertised as having additional coffee and vanilla but it really doesnt come out as expected.
The taste is significantly more boozy with a neutral oak flavor and accompanying roast element. Earth and char gives way mildly to coffee before transitioning back to booze.
This is medium bodied with light carbonation. A little solventans overall lacking for what it was described as. It seems promising as a bartel aged brew but if they are goin to advertise those additional adjuncts, I think they need to make them a little more evident in the profile. As is though, a decent barrel aged stout.
