Poured from bomber without much of a head into a small snifter. Dark and thick in appearance. Smell of vanilla, coconut and whisky. Taste is strong in both coffee and whisky. Really enjoyable, balanced beer.

Got this one from desp59 a while back. Cheers!

From a bomber into a snifter
50/50 blend of Rare DOS and Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch, aged in Colorado whisky barrels and finished with Mostra Kopi Luwak coffee.

APPEARANCE: Opaque black pour yields a three finger, medium looking, creamy dark tan head with excellent retention. Head slowly fades to a full, creamy cap and clings to the glass. Black body with no carbonation evident. A splotchy wisp remains leaving lots of nice lacing down the glass. Good looking stuff.

SMELL: Lots of potent, roasted coffee, sweet cream, vanilla, oak, whisky as well, dark chocolate, toffee and butterscotch on the nose. The creamy coffee is great and it works really well with the sweet whisky character.

TASTE: Roasted coffee, sweet cream, oak, vanilla, milk chocolate and whisky notes up front. Very flavorful. Some barrel and coffee at the swallow with a bold and lingering finish of roasted coffee, vanilla cream, toffee and butterscotch sweetness, oak, whisky character, and some lovely bitter coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Really nice roasted, sweet and whisky character with the roasted, bitter-sweet coffee playing the perfect accompaniment to the barrel.

PALATE: Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Super creamy and velvety smooth on the palate, goes down silky smooth and finishes a touch mouth-coating. Some bitterness and lingers but virtually no sign of heat or booze. Silky, velvety, and luscious. Wonderful feel.

OVERALL: This is a BA coffee stout lover’s dream. It’s not a bourbon bomb, so don’t expect it to be. If they wanted a bourbon bomb, they would have made that. Instead, this is a well-balanced, extremely well-executed, silky, velvety smooth barrel aged coffee stout with piles and piles of character. All the right stuff is in all the right places, with the roasted, bitter-sweet coffee and sweet barrel flavors working in perfect harmony, and an excellent look and feel supporting the show. No heat, booze or staleness here. This is all of the good and none of the bad. One of the best BA coffee stouts to have ever been dumped into my belly. Perhaps the best of all time. I’m sure they took a long time to decide that 50/50 was best, but whatever their methods were, this works. Period. Thanks again for the box of beers, desp59. This one was outstanding.

Big dark, bold appearing beer with one finger brown head. Good retention. Rich coffee and milk chocolate aromas, like a mocha, and this carries through on the flavour, with a fairly solid medium mouthfeel probably translating from the Mikkeller aspect, mild astringency from the coffee on the finish.

Aroma is impressive. Coffee dominates there and in the flavor. As with brunch weasel, though, it's like espresso sludge combined with 90% cacao chocolate. Too acrid for my taste, but the oak and bourbon--and the body of the base--right the ship enough. I'm following it up with a kbs 2014, which is thinner and sweeter (in a welcome way) and obviously less coffee forward. A huge beer. Much better at room temp for me.
