One of the most balanced coffee beers out there, as well as one of the most creative, balanced use of cinnamon. Fremont is the leader in how to best utilize barrels, and this beer epitomizes this. So lucky to live in the NW. It is worth the hype if you can get it.

08/2016 - This is drinking superbly; there's this delightful coconut that pops now, along with coffee, cinnamon, and brown sugar on the nose; the flavors are more of the same; pretty awesome mouthfeel, with a lightly sweet, bourbon finish.

Good stout, sweet smell and a nice smooth but creamy feel. It's great but I don't know that it deserves to be on the top 100 list for BA

2016 vintage
22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep ruby brown color with a one-finger creamy khaki colored head that has good retention that settles to a thin film and leaves a rung around the edge

S- initial aroma offers plenty of cinnamon complimented by a big bourbon barrel presence that adds notes of caramel, leather, chocolate and even a hint of coconut. Undertones of tobacco, dark fruits & earthy coffee

T- initial hit of cinnamon opens it up, followed by plenty of bourbon barrel that immediately adds notes of barrel juice, tobacco, caramel, toffee and a hint of vanilla. Mid-palate gives notes of chocolate and coffee. The finish gives more cinnamon and bourbon, with a linger of booze and sweet malt

M- thick body with moderate carbonation leads to a thick and creamy mouthfeel that continues into a slightly warming velvety and creamy finish

O- as expected the bourbon barrel blends add a ton of complexity, the coffee and cinnamon are just enough, a great addition to an already amazing base beer, delicious

Bottle Date: 2016
Palate Contaminants: none

Color is a completely opaque dark brown. Fine light brown head that goes away quickly, although there's a residual sheen of very fine carbonation on the surface.

Scent is cloves, molasses, and cinnamon. It's also notably sweet. Slight bourbon, and there's a little burnt sugar that stands apart from the molasses. Slightly mentholated.

Tons of different flavors, and it evolves interestingly from the front to the back. Cocoa powder, cola, and bitter prunes up front. It's deceptively sweet, as well. Cloves, raisins, cinnamon, and smoky oak in the middle. Coffee is in there, but it hits late, along with a little black licorice. It's like a Greatest Hits of dark brews. Really good intensity, but room for improvement in the balance between bitter and sweet, and coffee and licorice isn't the best way to wrap things up. Still, it's really good.

Good medium-heavy weight. Not much alcohol for the ABV. Very well integrated carbonation, and there's a reasonable amount of it, too. My only real complaint is that the aftertaste lines up with the late (lesser) flavors than what's earlier.

Like a decadent breakfast in a bottle, the coffee and cinnamon in this bomb will start your day off with a bang. Dangerously smooth, the balance of this brew hides the heat behind sweet and velvety waves of flavor. These guys are professionals at the BA game, and this beer is another feather in their cap.

Appearance: poured a really dark murky brown with a pancake batter color head.

Smell: very malt forward aroma, with vanilla beans, honey biscuits, and sweet mocha. Trace of cinnamon comes through in a more subtle scent.

Taste: very sweet like an English barely wine. There is a huge essence of sweet vanilla beans with a biscuity maltiness. Then there are dark fruits - mainly plums. The coffee seems just a little muted but I think its partly due to the multitude of flavors I'm picking up. Cinnamon comes with a nice subtle spiciness, making this more like a baked dessert beer. Whiskey comes in at the finish, more noticeable at room temp. Tasted no alcohol presence.

Mouthfeel: full-bodied, rich, and smooth like silk.

Overall: a well executed beer. There's really no flaws, its sweet and so balanced between the coffee and cinnamon. And the alcohol is barely noticeable, making it too easy to drink.
