Blind beer #2 for NBS 7.

Poured in to a Jester King Snorkel snifter - mystery beer has barely a trace of head. Just a nice, light ring of brown. The first thing I smelled after removing the cap was whiskey, so we definitely have something barrel-aged here. I'm really impressed by how thick and fudgy this beer tastes! The smell is full of all kinds of whiskey notes, but it doesn't taste a bit hot - it's monstrously chocolatey, with some other lovely, sweet adjunct that I'm not immediately placing. For what it's worth - my palate is garbage. No excuses. It just sucks.

I will say that I do feel like this beer has a slight bit of bite to the whiskey that I generally associate with rye barrels - so I'm going to guess it's some kind of rye barrel-aged stout.

As it warms, the vanilla and coconut come out strongly, but that fudge is still prominent. It drinks amazingly easy and does not taste like a %14 beer. Tremendously impressive - this is an excellent beer.

Look: Pitch Black with small khaki head. Has medium low carbonation.
Smell: Bourbon, smoke, charcoal, fudge, subtle coconut, and vanilla.
Taste: Bourbon, vanilla, fudge, a little smoke, oak, and charcoal.
Mouthfeel: Medium slick, with tons of bourbon barrel.
Overall: A great Bourbon barrel aged stout from Scofflaw, but the coconut is lacking.

Very dark appearance with slight tan head. Aroma is a sweet molasses and mild coconut. Taste is a very nice blend of slightly sweet molasses, coconut and bourbon.
