This is one of my favourite beers. So much rich flavour. It's a perfect beer when you're sitting home warm by the fire while it snows outside.

Looks black, like a 44 on the SRM color index. Smells chocolate,coffee, alcohol,some faint raisin,figs,big boozy smell is a lot. Tastes like chocolate,black licorice, peat?vinous.( is it possible they used scotch whisky barrels?) Feels is a tad bit harsh and biting. Not creamy velvet smooth like some big boy stouts.Also this beer loses total carbonation,bubbles,etc. And not to rip this "stout" apart, it had the consistency of a Chardonnay. Opposite of chewy. I never rated KBS because of the hype. I had 40 bottles of KBS 2 years ago. Each one was delicious compared to this strange dry,vinous,weird feel concoction. The fact that this was aged is even more disheartening. Weyerbacher beers seem astringent to me in general. I will lay down the remaining. Maybe in a few years a metamorphosis will occur.

Bold, rich coffee flavor with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Finishes hot; the bourbon barrel aging will wake you up.

A: Beer pours an almost pitch black body with very minimal head that quickly fades away. Almost no lacing was present while drinking.

S: Beer has a very strong bourbon aroma. Also noticing some plum like smells and a small amount of vanilla.

T: The bourbon is the first thing I notice. The beer also has some chocolate sweetness that counters the bourbon characters.

M: Very smooth drinker. Nice full mouthfeel present. The bourbon kick is there but melds well with the overall mouthfeel.

O: Very easy drinker for a double digit ABV. Head and lacing were missing but overall a nice solid beer. Bourbon, however, seems to dominate the other aspects of the beer.

I thought this was a bit too hot when fresh and maybe even a little bit of a mess, so I put three away for a year. I’m glad I did- it lost a lot of its coffee flavors but it’s far more balanced than it was when fresh. Great mouthfeel, but perhaps a bit on the sweet side for some. I’d buy it again.

Pours pitch black with a nice mocha tan head that recedes quickly. Huge sweet coffee aroma, burnt espresso, caramel, vanilla, boozy. Big coffee flavor, lots of boozy barrel presence, caramel and vanilla, sweet finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel, slick, coats the tongue. Overall this is a great beer, a little more coffee presence that KBS, a little more acidic finish as well. Def going to buy again.

Aged ~10 months

L -- 1,000 lumens passed through the glass reveals a fairly dark black body, although some light definitely shone through. Fizzy, instantly dissipating head. Looks a lot like Plead the Fifth
S -- Smoke, oak, dark chocolate, tobacco leaf, tamari, bourbon, coconut, hint of stale coffee
T -- Caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, moderately astringent dark fruits, char, touch of bourbon and coffee. The barrel notes aren't too prevalent in this one
F -- Semi-fluffy, smooth mouthfeel with a restrained smoky intensity on the finish. Medium carb. Semi-sweet
O -- At ~$5/bottle this is a good deal for a BBA stout. Nothing incredibly noteworthy but nothing much to complain about either

I stopped into The Flight Center last eve and had a 12oz pour of this. A bit pricy at $11.00, but it sounded quite enticing.

Served in a small snifter, it was an oily, jet black color. Had a thin, very fine layer of dark beige foam, most of which clung to the edge of the glass. Lacing was present but on the light side. Had a nice nose, with choco, dark fruit and some bourbon present. It was quite smooth, and the body was somewhat more than medium.

Taste had some roasty notes, with choco and espresso mixed in. Also had some caramel, vanilla and raisins and dates, which gave it a vinous quality. Bourbon notes were also swirling around in te background. Reminded me a bit of some of the old Brooklyn Black Choco Stouts. Prosit!
