Notes: Limited (brewed once) availibility. For Madness & Reason #7, we blended Bourbon Barrel-Aged Everett with Damon—then conditioned the beer atop Kenyan Kieni coffee beans that were sourced, roasted, and provided to us by the Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark

Dark brown pour with thin toffee colored lacing and low carbonation. Chocolate roasted malt with bourbon and oak aroma.
Flavor follows the nose with lots of deep chocolate char, coffee beans, bourbon, roasted toffee, vanilla, and oak. Full body with light carbonation, light prickly carbonation. Overall: pretty fantastic beer right here.

Pours a viscous black with a khaki head that leaves a ring around the glass. Nose is of coffee, milk, vanilla, and base Everett comes through nice- roasty malts, bakers chocolate. Start to get a little barrel as it warms. Taste follows the nose, coffee, bakers chocolate, bitter malts, mild vanilla and very little barrel. Feel is as expected from HF. Great viscosity, perfect carb. Overall, I think this is a great coffee stout/porter but miss the barrel. Either needs longer barrel time, or just less coffee.
