750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with a couple inch frothy tan head that stayed around for a very long time. Had to wait a while for the head to settle somewhat before I started drinking this. The brew smells like coffee, roasted/burnt malt, oats, oak, and some caramel. The taste is mostly like the aroma, the coffee flavor is dominant, with burnt/charred malt, oak, oats, caramel and toffee noticeable. It starts off mostly bitter with a hint of sweetness, but as the beer warms up more the sweetness does get a little stronger. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and easy enough to drink, but also has a bit too much carbonation for my liking. I think it's a good enough brew, but if it had lower carbonation I'd like it better. I still think it's worth trying if you've never had it before.

750ml corked and caged brown bottle purchased from Jane's Beer Store in Mountain View, CA. Brought back to Sydney, Australia where I shared it with Sam and Chris.

Pours a deep black-brown colour, but with a surprisingly light body that sits fairly thin in the glass. Head is a fine ring of pale brown around the edge of the glass. Specks of lace form around the outside of the glass. Looks reasonable, but it's pretty timid for the style.

Nose is quite pleasant. Light malty roast, with a slight funk around the edges. Hint of something slightly vinous and a little salty in places. Roast is fairly subdued all things considered, and there's really not much hint of the barrel except for the wildness. It's reasonable though.

Taste is light and fairly empty for the large part—as though the wilder notes have taken out all the body, but not replaced it with funk or acidity. Instead, it leaves the roast feeling rather empty on the top with a high-cocoa chocolate character devoid of sweetness. Very dry finish. Feel is very light with just a linger of roast coating the back palate.

Overall, this is bitterly disappointing. Beer Geek Breakfast is good, Anchorage is excellent, but the combination of the two is way below what I expected. This should be a really wonderful beer—and it just really, really isn't.

750ml shared with friends, my 3rd time having this I believe. From 2-week old cellphone notes.

A - Pour is black and inky. Tan head is nothin' fast.

S - Mostly a coffee chocolate bomb. Pretty big sweetness. Er, oak?

T - Once again, big ol coffee/chocolate, very tasty though. Molasses, oats and light roastiness. Still on the sweeter side but the coffee flavor is great. Oak is pretty much non-existent.

M - Falls kinda short here, thin, lightly carbonated and boozy, sweetness gets cloying.

O - The coffee flavor was really nice, but overall comes off as too simple and a weaker rehash in the series. The "oak tanks" don't bring anything new to the table, mouthfeel is definitely a step down from the other variants.
