12oz bottle, 2016 vintage, poured into a Weyerbecher tulip glass. Enjoyed on 2.13.17, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a jet black color, thick and massively opaque, very viscous with a thick, firm brown head, excellent retention with good legs and sticky lace. The aroma is great, an explosion of coffee, dark chocolate with rich grain, mild barrel that is pretty bourbon forward with light charred oak, stone fruits and a nice vanilla expression. The flavors are wonderful, really strong dark chocolate, light vanilla, soft bourbon adds some good complexities, roasted grain marries well with the charred oak while cold pressed coffee really leaps out as the beer warms, very rich and decadent with some plummy stone fruits and a sweet caramel and brown sugar forward finish. The mouthfeel is very good, coating, creamy, soft and gentle, very full bodied with a lightly warm finish.

Verdict: A great barrel aged stout from Weyerbacher, right up there with the likes of KBS and other barrel aged coffee stouts. The flavor profile really is reminiscent of KBS and this makes me wish Weyerbacher was in my distribution market because this is excellent stuff.

Had on tap. Pours opaque, black in color with minimal head. Taste is big coffee--roasted and black, cream, bourbon, and white sugar. Heavy bodied, sweet and roasty with low carbonation. Almost tasted a bit too sweet. This one is probably spot on for a coffee drinker, but the flavors did not come together as well here as with some other coffee stouts I have tried.

WOW!! I can't remember ever having such a complex tasting beer and such a nice experience sipping on it as the taste seemed to change as it changed temperatures. Right off the bat the toasted coffee/cocoa tingles the senses. Later the sweetness of vanilla and smokiness of the bourbon barrels comes through. Some may say it's a bit boozy with the high ABV content but I can't say I experienced that booziness. To my palate it felt smooth AND full bodied.

Black as night, smells boozy and chocolatey, tastes like a rich bourbon mocha, and coats the mouth in its suffocating love. Glad to share this 12 oz bottle on a hot summer night but I would love to find this beauty in the dead of winter. Two of these could stave off cabin fever for a day or two.

2017 bottle. From bottle into snifter.

Dark black liquid with medium-to-low amount of foam head upon pour. Aroma and smell on this beer was very nice. Chocolate. Coffee. Mild barrel to complement that all. Sadly, the taste didn't follow. It's like the chocolate and coffee became extremely muted and faint. I'm not sure I got any barrel either. Yet somehow it was boozy with a strong alcoholic burn. Maybe they got the bourbon alcohol thing without the actual oak character. It was strange. Did not feel balanced. Was somewhat disappointed and will not be picking up again.
