Slick black with a thick mocha collar.

Nutty coffee remains formidable here and the bourbon isn't too strong on the nose, giving off only a slight oaky presence.

A slight bourbon heat is detectable on the palate, but a smooth, round mocha keeps it from being overwhelming.

Absolutely flawless example of a barrel aged coffee stout. Smooth bourbon, integrated coffee with a ton of roast, lots of chocolate. Such an amazing beer.

A big thanks to Mike for this one. I've been wanting to try this ever since the regular version blew me away. 12oz. bottle into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is dank, potent coffee. Hints of roast, chocolate and mocha all engulfed by a rich, sweet bourbon. Beer opens sweet and syrupy. Espresso, mocha and roasted malt up front with booze, peat and tobacco in the back. Wet wood is prominent here. Molasses sweetness from start to finish with a very light soy sauce presence at the finish. Good complexity with a full, velvety mouthfeel to match. Light bubbles dance on the tongue and combines with the booze to create a warm feeling going down.

I actually think that the barrel-aging takes a little something away from this one. Still a very good beer but maybe it needs a little time to mellow the barrel presence.

Oh boy, this is a treat! Simply a delicious imp stout, dripping with coffee flavors and sticky sweet caramel and balanced by a robust dark cocoa backbone, with a mild bourbon note added to it. Simply wonderful
