The beer pours a blackish brown color with good head retention and considerable lacing all around. On the nose, the coffee clearly dominates, but with considerable vanilla and dark chocolate as well. There's a hint of bourbon on the nose, but no more than that. The beer smells ptetty good. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, although the soft and somewhat creamy mouthfeel is impressive and a bonus. Mouthfeel is fairly full, and the beer is fairly light on its feet for such a sizeable beer. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and the finish is long and smooth.

Very nice beer from this new to me brrwery. The $25 for a bomber price tag was a tad high, but otherwise, this is a pretty impressive effort.

'16 vintage.

This one pours a fairly dark black, deep and rich looking, with a small white head, and not much lacing.

This smells like vanilla, tobacco, light smoke, roasty and earthy coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, and bourbon.

This is really quite good. It's a much less sweet "pastry stout," as there's a big earthy, smokey, and bitter character to this one, with an intriguing and complex bitterness. The coffee flavor is still very present, even in a 2016 bottle. It's roasty, a little bit caramelly, smokey, and chocolatey. There's lots of oak too, and a light bourbon character. It's all very well integrated.

This is medium bodied, silky and smooth, with a typical level of carbonation.

This is really great- there's a lot going on, it aged really well, and it's a treat to drink.
