A co-worker brought me in this beer to try. Just pouring the bottle, I knew I was going to be in for something real good.
That jet-black-oil color for a rich stout with a hazy chocolate small head. Then the bursts of coffee aroma. Almost like having a cup of java right in front of me. The sips were dry and full of coffee, what I realized in the bouquet came right through in he taste. Then at the end of the taste the chocolate comes through to finish this off so very nice

Served on firkin at the brewery. Pours jet black with a half finger tall off white head, quickly dissipating down to a light ring, leaving small streaks of lace on the glass.

Smells of warm bourbon, coffee grounds, cocoa powder, vanilla, bit of chalk and some mild booze. Taste is mainly the coffee, chocolate and vanilla up front slowly being joined by the warm bourbon, coffee grounds and some mild booze burn. Smooth, sweet feel with some light booze burn.

Overall a really nice bourbon barrel stout. The coffee is a little light compared to the base beer but it is still very enjoyable. Hope they bottle this one.

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.
