The beer pours Black with absolutely no head. It has very low carbonation. The beer smells of coconut, chocolate, almonds, and subtle bourbon. It tastes of coconut, chocolate syrup, and cocoa powder. The feel is medium. Something’s off about this bottle, I know coconut fades fast but there are no bubbles what so ever. No barrel either, this beer either fell off a cliff in 6 months, or I got a bad bottle. Big let down.

Soooo good. So much character. Coconut, almond, chocolate, barrel, and finishes with an A+ coffee roast. Nose matches the flavor. Not stupid sweet like most pastry stouts.

A friend was generous enough to share a bottle with me - I have to confess that I'd discounted the beer as being all hype... but I couldn't have been more wrong. Even cold, $$ is exceptionally rich, warm, and chocolatey. The nose is all chocolate. As the beer warms, subtle vanilla and coconut notes come out quite pleasantly. I was fairly surprised by how mellow the carbonation is - which really recommends it to me. The flavors still manage to pop. $ticker $hock is quite incredible. I wonder how it will age, given the incredible infusion of adjuncts.

World class beer. I'm amazed. I'll need to take Pulpit Rock a little more seriously in the future.

On tap at the brewery. Tan head black in color. Thick.

German chocolate cake goodness. Great bourbon flavors. Awesome coconut and the almonds add some sweetness. Chocolate and fudge. This is impressive. Awesome first BA offering from Pulpit. Excited to see what’s next.
