I've been sitting on this bottle for a year and decided that after my car broke down today and I've walked miles in the cold windy rain, I should treat myself to this tonight. Since there are no notes in the summary, I should provide some context: although this is categorized as an American Brown Ale, that is very misleading by itself. The label describes it as a Bourbon Barrel Brown with coffee, cacao and vanilla beans.

Poured into a DFH tulip, it has a dark reddish brown body topped by a small light tan head that doesn't really go away. The ingredients give it a rich coconut smell in which, at times, you can detect the individual parts but why bother; just enjoy the whole thing. The taste is similar but in it you can discern the components more, particularly the coffee on the back end. Having had a Stone Americano Stout earlier this week, the coffee here is much more understated, surely reflecting lighter beans and smaller quantities used so to stay in balance with the rest. Mouthfeel was a bit thin for this but that's a small quibble.

I don't think I had this fresh so I can't judge the impact that aging it a year accomplished other than this was a very good experience.

Clear burnt reddish-brown with a solidly persistent khaki creamed froth and a slight, curved uniform ridge.

Smell is Tootsie Roll, mocha drizzled nuts and waffle cone.

Taste is milky chocolate, coffee, caramel, nutty cola and creamy vanilla dollop. A slightly smoky roast is joined by lighter notes of dry neutral wood at first that becomes slightly peppery of bourbon on the exhale.

The smooth, medium-light body has a firm, crisp carbonation that is present but mildly so before a chewy dry finish.

The coffee addition is excellent and really enhances this toasty brown, while the quality cacao and vanilla don't seem to hurt either. The barrel aging is there, but subtle, and doesn't overpower, but doesn't add a whole lot either. Either way, this beer is a delicious, amped up Brown that nears Stout territory, and I'm surprised I don't hear more about this.
