2017 release. Pours jet black with a thin deep brown fizzy head. Head sticks around longer than the original and vanilla bean versions. Nose is of chocolate cake, brownies and light coffee. Taste of fresh baked gooey brownies, tootsie rolls and caramel filled chocolates. Light coffee and vanilla with a ever so slight bourbon burn. Not as bourbon or barrel forward as the other Midnight Lightning’s. Had all three side by side for comparison. Medium to boarderline thin body. Dry chalky chocolate finish. Favorite of the bunch, slightly edging out Vanilla bean.

Vintage 2017.
Pours opaque black. A thin brown head forms and quickly disappears completely leaving no lace. A strong aroma of brownie batter and Tootsie Roll with a hint of bourbon wafts from the bottle as soon as the cap is lifted. The taste follows with dark chocolate, brownies, coffee, vanilla and a subtle bourbon finish. Full texture with low carbonation. Like a coffee & bourbon soaked Tootsie Roll. Awesome stuff!

Thank you Brad! Served alongside BA Midnight Lightning.

Deep, dark brown body with a soapy beige head that leaves lacing cascading down the walls of the tulip. Indeed, huge chocolaty aromas are present from the onset. Coffee, chocolate aromas, rich mocha. Delicious. I preferred this one.

Bourbon Barrel Aged Cocoa Vanilla Coffee Imperial Stout. On draft at the Midnight Lightning bottle release at the brewery. Excellent balance of the coffee cocoa and bourbon, don't really taste much of the vanilla. Terrific mouthfeel, as well. This is an outstanding beer!

Update: opened up one of my bottles, poured into a snifter. The vanilla is more noticeable from the bottle, but still subtle; blends very nicely with the cocoa and coffee. So smooth, rich, and decadent. Fantastic!
