Red Eye NovemberRed Eye November
Notes: Redeye November features an exclusive blend of Brazil Oberon and Sumatran beans from our friends at Mostra Coffee. Flavors of dark fruit, Baker's chocolate and caramelized sugar meld with the spicy rye malt and bittersweet molasses of Darkstar November, our original barrel-aged beer. Yet another piece to the grand puzzle...

2021 release. Bottle to tumbler.

Look: Jet black with with lots of tiny floaters looking like golden stardust. No head. No lacing.

Smell: Malty, sweet and boozy. Clear notes of rye, molasses and coffee.

Taste: The rye is very present with the molasses adding sweetness, the coffee bitterness. Dark chocolate is there, malty and woody hints as well. The boozy barrel notes keep everything together very nicely.

Feel: Full and thick. Rather creamy than syrupy. Very low carbonation.

Overall: At first, the combination of rye, molasses and coffee didn't sound too promising to me as I'm not a big fan of any of the three flavors in my stouts. However, in this case every single one of them adds to a perfectly balanced taste which, together with the creamy mouthfeel, results in a fantastic beer.

2021 release - batch 5. 13.3% ABV. Poured from a 500mL bottle into a snifter.

Clear (?) seal brown liquid with a faint tan collar. Vague sheen of tears; no head development.

Rich, balanced aromas of coffee, roast malt, chocolate covered cherries, faint pipe tobacco, and molasses; perhaps an earthy hop note at times.

Unctuous palate entry suffused with all the flavors from the nose, dialed up. Bittersweet chocolate, bright stone fruit/berry notes, leading to layers of cocoa, loam, treacle, and toasted brown sugar. Malt exhibits moderate roast qualities, but more forward character comes from the coffee and barrel. No char. Low bitterness. Medium-dry finish. Decent complexity, but more focus on balance and smoothness I think.

Oily, rich, medium-full body with dangerously disguised alcohol.

Excellent example of the style, although, perhaps, the base beer is a touch subdued. Maybe not the best value, but I won't dock any points for that...

Midnight black oily pour with a brown head. The nose is essentially a perfect ba coffee stout nose, and thus elevated the overall score a bit: huge and full coffee with tones of bean and grounds plus earth, bittersweet dark chocolate, rye, dried date, plus huge rich barrel notes with an emphasis on the molasses and vanillin laiden bourbon, wow. Taste has brighter complexion with semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, and barrel is not as powerful, loses the rye and some earth tones, but still excellent. Feel is chewy yet medium bodied, good barrel with the warmth in particular, but coffee is the clear star with roast and percolation for days. Overall just a little shy of being one of the greats, but the smell is there

Pours a deep black color with a light brown colored head that leaves a little lacing down the glass. Smells of the deep roasted malt base, sweet molasses, and a nice blast of earthy coffee at the end. Tastes of sweet molasses, coffee, toffee, a hint of spicy rye at the end. Thick, smooth, perfect amount of carbonation, excellent feeling and excellent beer!
