If you like intensely bitter coffee and chocolate, and prefer a little whiskey with those foodstuffs, then this is the beer for you! (However, this one, Release #34, was not the beer for me.)

Release #31- Charming Beard Coffee.

Pours opaque black. The 1/4 inch tan head quickly fades to a thin film on top and leaves faint spotty lace.

The smell is of dark chocolate, vanilla, pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, toasted coconut and faint booze.

The taste is of bitter black coffee, dark chocolate, ripe dark fruit and hints of bourbon.

The texture is heavy bodied, thick and viscous with low carbonation.

A big, barrel aged stout that is dominated by bitter black coffee flavor.

Deep dark black with little to no head - non-aggressive poor.

The aroma is wonderful. Dark chocolate and coffee come off strong.

This is extremely well made. On the taste, I get sweet chocolate and sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, pecan coffee (or something similar), bourbon, brown sugar, oak, and char. On top of all that is a nice tobacco and nutty finish.

It's full bodied and sticky - just the way I like it. The velvety texture of the beer slips down so easily. The booze is well-hidden.

Crazy good! This reminds me a lot of Stone's w00tstout, one of my favorites. It's like a rich dessert with super complex flavors and a lingering taste.
