2015 edition at 10.5% ABV

Dark mahogany, nearly black body; thin, fizzy head. Heavy cocoa and whiskey aroma; vanilla; mocha. Big whiskey and cocoa flavor; faint suggestion of coffee grounds; some boozy tones. Medium body; somewhat thin and fizzy; semi-sweet finish.

This is a passable yet rather mundane double porter. It lacks body and balance although there delivers some decent dark, roasted grain flavors and a noticeable alcohol presence.

Drinking a 2014 from a bomber poured into a glass...very little coffee presence and average barrel aging complexity, slightly boozy still. Slightly disappointed was hoping for more.

poured 22oz bottle into snifter. 2014 vintage.

A - Dark coffee brown with a very thin tan head. Fizzes away quickly and does not leave a collar or lacing.

S - Wafts of light coffee roasted malts and dark chocolate are the biggest aromas. Soft and mellow bourbon and vanilla with a hint of cola. The cold brewed coffee really makes this beer smell terrific.

T - The coffee is present and delicious and the bourbon vanilla flavors compliment it nicely, without overwhelming it (this could be from the age). Sweet and roasty and overall sublime to sip on. I pick up a bit of bitter chocolate on the finish.

M - Soft carbonation with a medium feel, smooth and creamy.

O - This was pretty much what I would want in a BB coffee porter. A wonderful coffee flavor and soft, mello bourbon notes. Well done!
