Bottle from Andover Liquors.
Pours a solid black with a smallish tan head that holds some retention. Aromas of brown sugar, milk chocolate, fudge, coffee, a touch of alcohol and bits of oak and vanilla. The flavor is sweet with lots of dark sugars, milk and dark chocolates, bits of dark dried fruits, and a bit of wood. Light earthy citrus hop flavor. There is a strong alcohol presence that burns on the way down allowing me to trace each sip on its journey towards my stomach. Thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet thick oily syrupy mouthfeel. This beer smells really good but the alcohol presence in the flavor keeps me from really enjoying this beer.

Apparently this is a bourbon barrel aged coffee stout.

Little head. Jet black. Little carbonation. Anise nose. Thin mouthfeel for the style. It's a coffee stout but all you can taste is the bourbon barrel treatment. Very very hot. Could probably use some time in the cellar.

Good beer. Not a great beer.

A - Pours pitch black with a thin dark tan head. Body seemed thick but not much lacing.

S - Bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar and expresso.

T - Bitter dark chocolate mixed in with black expresso. Some licorice then vanilla. Bourbon barreling seems a bit overwhelming but calms down.

M - Full bodied, viscous and low carbonation. Can seem a bit cloying on the flavor.

O - It's a mess, but a good mess. Maybe time will do it good but until then it's still enjoyable now.
