Sipped on a bottle of this on my first visit to Brouwers in Fremont. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head. Huge earthy coffee aroma with lots of roast and chocolate and big bourbon notes, then more coffee. Flavor is a massive punch of coffee, super earthy, but big sweet tones of chocolate and lots of oaky bourbon coming through. Silky and rich mouthfeel, medium carbonation. One of the best beers I have ever had. Alongside Bourbon County Coffee for me, and perhaps eclipsing it. Beautiful!
