Bottled on Nov. 14, 2016 poured into a teku glass

Syrupy, black motor oil liquid. One finger light brown rich foam cap. Some lacings

Aroma of sweet bourbon, tobacco, coffee

Taste of roast malts, bourbon, coffee

Smooth, some sudsing, 16% abv well hidden, coffee and bourbon linger on the tongue, doesn’t burn. It’s a sipper not a chugger

Really nice beer, repeatable

12oz bottle into a snifter. Bottled January 25 2016 listed on the label. Hurricane Irma beer.

The nose is chocolate, coffee, bourbon. Smells delicious! The taste is dark and roasty with a lot of sweetness and a warming boozy finish. There is a lot of roastiness from the coffee lingering into the finish. The chocolate helps to smooth things out. Wow, this is a delicious sipper. Tons of coffee in this one which I really enjoy and really nice notes coming from the barrel. It is definitely hot, but that is expected with such a high ABV - 17.5% listed on the label.
