The beer pours Black with a medium off white head. It has medium low carbonation. The beer smells of hazelnuts, almonds, caramel, coffee, and light bourbon barrel. It tastes of hazelnuts, almonds, marzipans, caramel, coffee, and light bourbon barrel. The feel is medium, and very drinkable. A very tasty barrel aged stout from Angry Chair.

On draft at Angry Chair. Served in a mini snifter glass. Pours a dark black body, half finger offwhite head, short retention and not much lacing. Smell is a bit of astringent booze, black coffee, milk chocolate, a bit of lactose and toasted grain. Not a lot of hazelnut or coffee here. Flavour follows, again with the hazelnut and coffee conspicuously missing. A bit of smoke and burnt grain on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly lower in carbonation, bitter and burnt grains on the finish.

The hue of this beer is that of an opaque, dark black tea, with almost no head, as what tan foam is there rapidly yet quietly disappears to nothing.

Aroma is subdued but does bring hazelnut and dark cocoa to the fore, as a touch of woodiness and a hint of creamy vanilla occasionally pop in.

Toasted hazelnut is paired with subtle marzipan flavors as dark charred oak and cocoa notes linger far in the background. At times I get peanut butter wafer in this creamy, medium-full bodied beer featuring a moderately fine but filling carbonation and sticky dry finish.

Surprisingly, this is not too sweet, especially relative to other AC brews. This was the most balanced, and as suchmost drinkable and enjoyable at a tasting that included other AC beers on draft like BA Rocky Road, Strawberry Cream, Tea Time and CLN LVN.
