2018 batch, no specific date stamped on the bottle.

Viscous pour, dark brown in color. As the beer fills the glass, a nice half finger of tan head rises up, quickly descending back into the beer and leaving a small archipelago of popping foam islands floating on top.

Rich aromas of chocolate and vanilla sit atop a subtle yet potent backbone of dark roast coffee. Smooth, no lingering bitterness, and a strong emergence of bourbon and and oakey character.

A more prominent bitter, roasty character in the flavors, but there is a great balance of more of that slightly bitter baker’s chocolate, subtle malt, and a very clear coconut taste. Throughout you get a nice potent contrast of boozy bourbon and charred oak. Awesome balance.

Nice medium weight to the beer, with a carbonation that is just a tad high and sharp if I’m being picky. Silky smooth, warm, boozy, and sticky in the finish.

Tasted at the beer hall.
Served in a small Snifter. Deep chocolate brown. 1/2 finger head.

As the beer warms up, some coconut. The aroma is relatively weak for the series.
The body is light, with less bitterness than other barrel aged Framinghammers.
There is coconut and chocolate in the taste.

I tasted the first barrel aged Framinghammer before it was bottled. This is my least favorite.
I still enjoy the series. But this is a step down. Perhaps the brewery is trying to appeal to a larger beer drinking market. Probably. Not a geeks beer. Diasappointing.
