Smell: big chocolate notes fudge medium roast coffee vanilla oatmeal.
Taste: big amounts of fudgy chocolate upfront middle of the mouth medium
Roast coffee milk chocolate vanilla oatmeal finishes with a hint of toasted coconut and French vanilla coffee creamer.
Feel: medium body creamy mouthfeel
Overall: an awesome beer lots of big fudgy chocolate notes but also nice barrel notes. A pretty sweet beer but not over the top it's just right!

Note: this was bottled 1/23/15 and I'm drinking this on 9/9/16. I'm blown away that a 8.5% percent coffee beer aged this well!

Pours a rich dark chocolate color. Aroma is boozy with notes of vanilla, cocao and a lIttle sweetness. Flavor is coffe and chocolate with a bourbon note throughout. Has notes a slightly sweet vanilla too. Overall this drinks really smooth and had great flavor, it's just a delicious beer.
