Totally jacked for this one - capped 22oz bomber split into tulips with my bro.

Thanks Dope!!!!

A: Very dark pour, dense body, opaque and nearly jet black, smallish darker brown head but decent lacing.

S: Bourbon, caramel, maple, vanilla, brown sugar, coffee, roast, toasted coconut. The coffee is moderate-to-light but mixes well with the sweetness of the barrel and malt/brown sugar.

T: Again, sweeter vanilla notes hit first, with underlying coconut, maple, some oak, caramel and chocolate. Roast & coffee underneath.

MF: Nearly full-bodied, pretty viscous with a lower felt carbonation presence.

O: Coffee and barrel integrates really well with this stout. The sweet aromas/flavors pop to the front but this thing isn't cloying by any means. Also, really not boozy at all. I enjoyed!

Poured form a 650 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Black. Pours about a half finger, ruby brown, foamy head. Dissipates quickly leaving only a small collection of bubbles and a beer ring. Substantial lacing.

S: Roasted espresso, dark chocolate, black licorice, vodka, almond, and molasses.

T: Bitter unsweetened chocolate with charred espresso. Heavy presence of licorice and pecan shells. A little harsh.

M: Heavy and hearty. High alcohol character, and a bit of an overly bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is strong. Dark hue, cool-looking ruby brown foamy head. Plenty of lacing. Nose is a great combination of coffee, chocolate, licorice, sweet components with something of a pure alcohol thing. Bitter chocolate and coffee. High alcohol feel, I have to assume from the bourbon barrels. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

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.
