Had a 4 OZ pour in a flight of other barrel-aged 4 Hands beers.

When it was cold, it was amazing. As a friend stated, it's like drinking vanilla.

As it warmed, though, it was a bit more cloying than sweet.

With the ratings being as they are (4.51) I was expecting more out of it.

On tap at EBF in Boston, MA.

This one pours dark black, with a small head, and a small foamy head.

There's lots of coffee on the nose- it's mostly chocolatey, with a bit of spice. There's the expected creamy vanilla on the nose too, with some bourbon.

The coffee is fairly dominant here, roasty, slightly spicy, and very chocolately. Obviously, the vanilla isn't as domiant as the base, but it is there, and adds a nice sweet creaminess to the beer. THere's a moderate level of barrel character, and it's not super boozy.

This is medium bodied, with a nice heft to it, and a nice level of drinkability.

4 Hands has gold on their hands with this beer.
