Presentation: 22 oz. bomber bottle chilled and poured into my Cigar City tulip glass. Big thanks to Centennial for the hookup on this long time want.

Appearance: Dark brown to black in color. A slight medium brown head that recedes into very little lacing.

Aroma: Roasted coffee, caramel and a light chocolate backbone. Definitely some bourbon and vanilla from the barrel. The coffee provides a nice earthy tone to it.

Taste: Strong coffee notes upfront with some nice backing sweetness. Caramel, chocolate fudge, and bourbon add a nice sweetness to the coffee. Not a lot of char or smoke from the coffee, but there is a nice earthy tones. Really nice balance of malt sweetness, barrel notes, and coffee.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and very smooth with average to low carbonation.

Overall, a really nicely balanced and tasty coffee stout with a light bourbon influence. The coffee adds a really great flavor and is elevated by the malt sweetness and the barrels. A really nice surprise and awesome value. Definitely one of my favorite bourbon barrel coffee stouts.
