Pours black with a dark mocha colored foam atop. Head only gets to a finger or so before bubbling away. Aroma is rich roasty, toasty, and caramely malts with big swells and waves of caramel, toffee, molasses, chocolate, and coffee. Coffee is mild, but integrated well. Bourbon hits right at the finish, notching the heat up right at the end, but not enough to push it into boozy or burning territory. Flavor profile is big roasty, toasty, and caramely malts with decadent layers of toffee, chocolate, and coffee throughout. Despite leaning into the darkness, it has playful hits of sweetness. Bourbon and char add a swell of bitterness and heat at the end, but not enough to upend the balance. Mouth feel is thick. It's full, creamy, and hearty. It's viscosity suggests a much higher alcohol percentage. Overall, a hefty, hearty stout enhanced by coffee and bourbon. It's a boozy brunch beer for those seeking to lay on the couch the rest of the day.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 750mL bottle.

Review #2500. 2018 vintage. Stored in fridge.

2018 vintage, opened in 2021

Pours an oily midnight black with no head to speak of, but a lasting spider web lacing atop the liquid.

Smells of melting chocolate among toasty malts and smoky rye, together with a floral sweet, rich whipped cream impression.

Has a creamy, smooth mouthfeel, showcasing a rich and full bodied beer, together with a lower, well fitting carbonation.

Tastes of bourbon soaked, toasty coffee beans, additional char among whipped cream and lighter molasses. Has a short, sugary peak, coated up by even more whipped cream, warming spices and light coconut flakes among a flowery softness. Finishes with bitter chocolate, a pleasant currant tartness, lighter hazelnuts and a long lasting bourbon dryness, together with honey and maple syrup.

This is a great beer, featuring a gentle, well put Bourbon richness, enhanced by a smooth, versatile malt backbone.
