Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Val-Dieu goblet. Thanks to neubernie for the hook up!

A: Pours a satanic looking shade of black-not one ray of light getting through this, even at the edges. Capping this is a creamy, dark-khaki, one-finger head that leaves considerable lace.

S: Coffee, front and center! Espresso, french press, dark roast, whatever. Quite possibly the most delicious aroma of coffee to eminate from a beer! Along with the coffee there are notes of dark fruit, brown sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted malt, and a touch of bourbon.

T: Once again, coffee takes center stage. Fresh, pure, espresso roast. Incredible! Blackened malt, molassas, bitter dark chocolate, sweet rolled oats, oaky vanilla, bourbon, a hint of coconut, rum soaked plum, sweet lactose, and bitter hops.

M: Incredibly full and creamy with just the right amount of sweetness and dry bitterness to hold everything together. Perfection!

D: I was blown away by this beer. I was expecting some rather intrusive bourbon chacteristics, but was delighted by how restrained it was. No syrup-y bourbon taste, no nose-hair-curling boozy bourbon smell. Just the seemingly simple, yet certainly complex, layering of so many different things that could easily go horribly wrong, but ended up perfectly right!

A flat-out classic and I don't even like coffee style beers to start with.

Black with a whisp of a brown/red head...

Aroma is big-time coffee beans...kind of like putting some coffee beans in a plastic bag and then jamming your head into the bag and smelling them....Also some vanilla and fudge...the bourbon notes are not singularly evident on the nose.

Creamy, rich, big in body and smooth...great feel to this as I drink it.

The taste is rich and flavorful with the fudge, vanilla, caramel and finally the coffee beans blending perfectly. The aroma led me to think there would be a huge coffee taste but the blend with the vanilla, caramel and fudge is a work of art.

This may be the best Tyranena beer I have had and I am a big fan of this brewery. A beer I would love to have for breakfast will out in the woods frying some eggs by the of these would be the perfect start to the day.

A 12 oz bottle courtesy of gford217.

A: The ale is dark as the darkest night, pitch black with no ruby, no garnet, no nothing. For a porter, this one has the look of an imperial stout. Not much head in the snifter but there was indication of carbonation as I poured.

S: Coffee, coffee and more coffee. The nose is stronger than a cup of Starbucks' best offering. Mixed with the coffee is roasted porter and some (I stress some) bourbon, although not as much as I expected.

T: Coffee and oatmeal swirl together, bitter and sweet. The coffee is acrid and concentrated, a hell of a lot of beans went into that cold toddy. The oatmeal has a lactic sweetness what pairs incredibly well with the coffee. Vanilla is the sole hint of the bourbon barrel, quite restrained when you figure that 60% of the beer was aged in bourbon. The vanilla and roasted coffee are lasting flavors, leaving a cold java sweetness in the tongue.

M: The pairing of coffee and oatmeal defies description, they meld perfectly together. The addition of vanilla from the bourbon adds a level of deeper flavor without the boozy warmth that a barrel can bring to an ale.

D: The alcohol level isn't listed but it certainly never rears its head throughout the glass. The flavors go so well together that it is hard to believe. This just cracked my top ten list.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Pours a dark coffee brown with ruby highlights and a frothy beige head that descends rather quickly but thoroughly dots the chalice

Smell: Espresso, charcoal, fruity dark chocolate and lots of oak

Taste: Espresso, at first, with a building coffee and charcoal flavor that moves in a fruity chocolate direction by mid-palate; after the swallow, the coffee flavor burst to the fore, but the oak and vanilla come on toward the end to mellow out the other flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, somewhat creamy; moderate carbonation

Drinkability: If I had extras, I would love to put this up against KBS and Bourbon County; as such, I'm just enjoying the heck out of this robustly flavored brew

Thanks, ipa2xs, for the opportunity

Ok this is my first beer review so bare with me if I get some stuff wrong. But this beer is Fantastic! I mean its so good it converted my wife who only drank Miller lite, to the the dark side!

When you crack the bottle open and start to pour the black gold into your pint you instantly smell the coffee and hints of the bourbon. It tastes smooth,chocolatly, and of course coffee. when you drink it you dont even want to take your lips off the glass, just keep your nose there and inhale.

this is a great beer right on the same block as KBS.

Devil Over a Barrel pours a black color with a very small non lacing head. There is a strong coffee and oatmeal aroma. The taste has a nice roasted aroma, bold coffee flavors, very creamy oatmeal flavors, and hints of vanilla and chocolate, with a just noticeable sweet bourbon like alcohol warmth. Perfect blend of flavors, nice strong alcohol warmth, and a great bourbon aftertaste. Overall WOW, a perfect blend of flavors, for a nice bold beer.

Thanks to brandoman63 for my first bottle.

Pitch black. Very stout-like with a wispy tan head. My nose is filled with coffee beans. Wow... very potent. I get some chocolate and oats but not so much bourbon.

God does this taste smooth. Just like coffee. I though Peche Mortel cornered the market on coffee stouts/porters... Tyranena has just bested them. Roasty coffee, malty deliciousness... and just a smattering of the bourbon they advertise on the label.

It's so creamy... so damn creamy. I've never had a better porter than this. This is just an amazing display of craftsmanship. I haven't been too impressed with Tyranena's other offerings but this one hit a grand slam. Grab some of this while it lasts... hopefully they'll decide to brew this every year.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pitch black in color. The head doesn't rise very high and settles pretty quickly, leaving a trail of lace on the way down.

Smell: Dark roasted whole coffee beans at the forefront. Vanilla and caramel from the bourbon. Charred grain. Wow, this is mesmerizing.

Taste/mouthfeel: Similar to the nose and every bit as good. Chocolate-covered coffee beans, caramel, vanilla. Dry, bitter and roasty in the finish. Medium-bodied and ridiculously smooth. Incredible complexity and balance.

Drinkability: Quaffable as hell for the style - I had a hard time savoring this stuff.

Notes: Wow, what a beer. Similar to Kentucky Breakfast Stout but arguably better. This is one of the best beers I've had so far this year.

Revisited this beer May 2010, it has dropped off in a big way. Still decent but nowhere near what it once was. Hopefully they rebrew this.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass from a 12oz bottle, no freshness dates seen, but bought in March 2008, this is there current release for the gone wild series.

This is a beer for the ages, or at least top of the ratings. Pours with a creamy tan head, black like a stout.

Huge coffee nose, a bit sweet, just delicious.

Big creamy taste of roasted coffee, a bit of chocolate in the middle, goes down too easy.

Full excellent mouthfeel, creamy and smooth, nicely carbonated.

Very drinkable, must be around 8-9% abv, but hard to tell, too easy to drink, made the mistake of having a Bells Oberon after this, it tasted like water, must find more of these...

Thanks to Mhewes for this brew:

A - Pour an opaque black with a small tan head that disipated into nothingness leaving no lace.

S - Coffee, Coffee, and more coffee. Little bit of vanilla, but espresso dominates.

T - Lots of different coffees, espresso, mocha, and dark roasts all coming together around some creamy vanilla and roasted oak.

M - Creamy with a good carbonation.

D - Great brew! Thanks Michael for the oppurtunity to try this. I will definately be seeking more in the future!

Thanks to bassmantin for a sample of this brew!

The smell is intense and very desirable. Coffee and bourbon make up this wonderful delight. The taste is nothing short of amazing. It's very stouty...where is the line drawn?

Coffee, bourbon, and vanilla are all mixed very well. I loved the base beer and this is a kicked up, kick ass version.

Overall, this is a fucking kick ass beer and I'm going to start my search for a 4 pack.

Jet black with froathy brown head.

The aroma alone is worth opening this one for. Roasty malt and oats with a balance of bourbon that does not overdo it. Taste is unreal. Sweet chocolate, rich and roasty oats with a frame of fine bourbon. Complex and enjoyable.

I not a big fan of the bourbon barrell trend right now because a lot of the beers over do it and leave me with a feeling that I just had a boilermaker. This one should be the benchmark of the style that the rest are compared to. Tyranena does it again.

A bourbon-aged porter? What could be better? Thanks to Team Cincinnati in the Triple Trouble BIF for this.

APPEARANCE: Pours into my Delirium tulip a deep brown with a small light tan head. It drops instantaneously to a medium collar with some hazy bubbles floating across the surface.

SMELL: Whoa. The awesome aroma of bourbon lets me know just what I'm in for. Vanilla notes come out quite a bit from the wood-aging. Of all things, the porter definitely seems to be in the background, but as it warms the rich chocolate and caramel come out a lot more. This smells incredible.

TASTE: Amazing. It's a porter first and foremost without letting the barrel-aging overwhelm it. Rich, luxurious chocolate and toffee hit you right up front with some of the bourbon flavor coming on at the finish. Just a perfectly tasting beer.

MOUTHFEEL: Rich and silky smooth. The body doesn't actually seem all that big, but the oats add such a nice dimension to this. Carbonation is on the lower end where it should be.

DRINKABILITY: Off the charts. It makes me want to cry that I only have 12 ounces of this wonderful nectar.

I need more of this somehow. It's not a simple beer by any stretch, but it's not too often that something blows you away like Devil Over A Barrel does.

Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown/almost black with amber edges. Small off-white head with okay retention but minimal lacing.

S: Very strong coffee with strong notes of chocolate bourbon.

T: Similar to the smell but far more going on. Strong coffee hits turning into strong malts with chocolate and cream hints all overtones by a alcoholic bourbon taste.

Overall: Excellent mouthfeel, well carbonated but still silky, perfect for the style. Drinkibility is amazing on this for the considering its a bourbon aged coffee porter, I could easily take down a six-pack. Tyranena's best by far.

12oz single, 3rd consumed out of a 4 pack

appearance: pours into a bells chalice, big black body with a creamy milk chocolate head and sticky retention - lovely

smell: dark roasted coffee, roasted oats, light bourbon, milky chocolate...a big roasty porter

taste: another sensational indulgence from tyranena...the bourbon isnt over powering and compliments the big roasted coffee flavors wonderfully. roasted oats and milk chocolate work wonders on this beer. I tend to forget i'm even drinking a porter as this tastes like it could have been crafted nearby at electric earth or barriques. gonna need more

mouthfeel: perfect, creamy and smooth

drinkability: through the roof

Thanks, brdc!

This was an extra... an extra!

One of the few great beers I've come across that seems to be aware that bourbon barrel aged beers SHOULDN'T TASTE LIKE FUCKING BOURBON. Ahem, sorry.

Pours a viscous, rich, not-quite-pitch black, there's some opacity and therefore deep brown/mahogany around the edges... and a thin, creamy, oatmeal-tan head that's maybe, maybe, a half finger that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is awesomely complex... coffee notes jump to the fore with a rich chocolate touch. There's a burnt caramel note with hints of vanilla and aged rum, a perception of warm spice, although it's almost too mild to even write the words. A warm raisin note. It's not quite as intense an aroma as I would like, but it provides an awesome sensory experience all the way down.

The beer has a similarly complex structure... rolling onto the tongue as a deeply roasted, mildly and richly sweet malt presence that presents layers of ripe fruit and dark caramels with vanilla, chocolate, and coffee undertones. The tannins just barely pucker the cheeks and smooth out the roastiness, no serious astringency or acridness, and dry enough to not leave the tongue coated sweet. Full bodied. Just a joy to drink.

Mouth is just a tad thin... boosting the carbonation on this might improve my judgment on its appearance and mouth, and perhaps have a positive impact on the aroma, and therefore taste. Bottle might have gotten a bit hot in transit and squeezed out a little CO2, so can't be too harsh.

Seriously, utterly, drinkable. Not the assault of flavor of a RIS, the oatmeal and barrel aging really, really smooth this out, and the barrel is leaving some faint hints of my favorite parts of the wood and the bourbon, adding to as opposed to fighting with and contrasting the beer underneath. A masterful blend, and even though this is beer number two I've tried from Tyranena, enough to make me fully excited about any other beers from them.

Seek out!

12oz bottle received from MeLikeBeer. Thanks! Poured into my Duvel tulip

A: Pretty much black with the darkest of brown highlights. Mocha colored head that recedes in a few minutes leaving a sprinkling of head on top. Darker than any porter I've had

S: Massive assault of coffee up front with a gorgeous balance of bourbon, cream and chocolate. Very well balanced. Come to think of it, it really isn't a coffee assault, at least not like the Bell's Java Stout. Warming this up brings out the oak, notes of vanilla and makes the coffee appear more heavily roasted.

T: Sharp coffee flavor up front followed by a very pleasant bourbon follow through. There's a hint of cream, nuttiness, and a hint of oak. The oak becomes a little more prominent as this warms up. The malt profile is great too, with a pleasant roasted notes from the malt becoming apparent. This is a remarkably balanced big beer

M: Maybe a tad over-carbonated but this one has the rest going for it - medium bodied, excellent finish with bitter coffee, alcohol dryness and the touch of bourbon

D: This one was supposed to last longer but it didn't. Excellent stuff

Bottle courtesy of CrazyMacHarris poured into a snifter.

A: Pours pitch black with ruby edges when held up to light. Head is big and dense and hangs around for quite a while with good lacing.

S: Wow! I have never smelled a beer like this before. The aroma is freshly ground coffee, really, really freshly ground coffee. I also get some sweet malts and vanilla, but the coffee is wonderfully dominant. Spectacular smell.

T: Taste is also dominated by the freshly ground coffee. The initial sweet caramel malt and vanilla taste gives way to dark chocolate and coffee before leaving a fairly bitter roasted coffee finish. I know I keep bringing up the coffee, but that's what's going on in this brew...and I like it.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with moderate carbonation.

D: This is one of the best porters I have ever tasted and is an absolute must for coffee lovers out there (like me). I could drink this all night long. If you haven't tried this one then do everything you can do get a bottle.

Firstly, this was on-tap at Happy Gnome and totally thru me for a loopy evening. So I had to search it out on the shelves. Alas, easily and happily enough found it.
Pours dark brown, settles quite black in the glass with a quick tanned, bubbly, spongey foam sitting about a finger high which fades fast to leave long stringy lacing stretched about.

Aroma is delecatablely yummy with strong yet well rounded coffee; cordailly bittered, roasted, and fully enveloped in creamy vanilla, chocolate and oatmeal cookies. The bourbon hint from the aging seaps in there after once it warms and adds one fine and thickly set touch to the aroma. Beautiful!

Taste is so smooth and creamy with quickly dry oat malt and semi sweet chocolate sweetness. Vanilla, cream, and deeper, darker set chocolate sweep in towards the finish as does the roasted scoop of coffee beans. Finish is tender and thickly rich with leftover chocolate notes drying along with oat sweetness and one liquidy center of creamy goodness. Very light touches of the bourbon and coffee interlace throughout each sip bringing a little different nuance each time.

Liquid chocolate mouthfeel on this yummy bad boy is outstanding delish. Lush, thickly set, creamy, easy going, tender, ungodly smooth, and with a tone all of its own that sets a mood quickly with sweet chocolatey lighting and aromas of roasted coffee.

I can and have drank a ton of this. And more will be on the bill any time I can find it. Drinkability is off the charts, but will sink in eventually...oh well, just as any great beer will do. But so worth it. I find this to be the little brother to the Goose Island Bourbon Cnty Stout and cousin to Founder's Kentucky Breakfast. A very fun family to be in I think!

Black, oily, and viscous: this brew is a dark beauty. With a faint but dense creamy hazel head that lingers for some time. Smells like the best coffee I've never had. The roasted coffee aroma is deadly focused with the right combination of bitterness and sweetness. Lots of vanilla and cream with a fair bit of chocolate as well. There is a slight, albeit distinct, trace of bourbon in the aroma which is nice because it could have easily overpowered the other flavors as some whisk(e)y aged beers have done. A syrupy heaven in my mouth. Thick, oily, and chewy body that is a fine compliment to the robust flavors of the beer and leaves a subtle and lingering bitterness of coffee and bourbon on the tongue that is most welcome. Incredibly smooth, drinkable, and most of all not out of reach or heavy despite its robust and amazing body/flavor. Welcome anytime for me. Coffee, bourbon, vanilla (less than in the aroma), chocolate (more than in the aroma) all combine wonderfully in this fantastic, complex, and balanced taste profile. A quintessential dessert beer in my opinion. This beer can have few rivals and is worth a great effort to seek out. I feel fortunate to have been able to enjoy this beer on more than one occasion.

Yummy stuff - poured into a pint glass and got 1" of tan head. Seemed a bit reserved until it warmed up some. Then aromas of coffee, bittersweet chocolate and oats emerge. Full bodied on the palate - easy drinking stuff that hits you on the back end with just the right amount of bitterness. To repeat - yummy stuff.

Thanks to Homerbag for a great trade. (Go LNBAs!)

Pours a nice impenetrable black with a very nice thick tan ice cream head. Nose is coffee ala KBS with some roastage. Taste follows with awesome coffee flavor, incredibly smooth viscous oatmeal taste, and the bourbon aging is very apparent here. Defenitely some vanilla and slight chocolate action in here as well. Mouthfeel is perfect, nice and viscous with that smooth milky oatmeal presence. Drinkability is extremely good for the style. Not sure what the abv is here, but if it is over 8% it is quite well hidden. I am very excited to see what one of these is like with a year or two on it. Truly a masterpiece of a beer, and one I will certainly trade for again. Defenitely rivals KBS for my top spot in the coffee realm, maybe even takes the cake. Fantastic beer, dont miss out on this one.

This beer pours a deep, dark brown with a fizzy head of pale tan. A few flashes of purple come through when held to the light.

Smells of Kahlua that's tied into a touch of molasses and dry caramel. The sweetness here also suggests fire toasted marshmallows. Oddly, the smell is captivating. I just want to keep smelling it. Hold on, this one's getting dumped from my pint into my DFH snifter...

The flavor starts off with a solid porter base of toasty malts and a touch of sour coffee but picks up on the sweeter Kahlua and marshmallow sweetness from the smell. Lingers on a bit, but drys out in the finish with a touch of smokey oak and sweet creamy coffee. Wow.

The flavors seem crisp and definite, but the mouthfeel is smooth and gentle with an easy going carbonation that softly effervesces.

The folks at Tyranena have been doing a bit of experimenting with their Brewers Gone Wild series and a lot seem to have been trying to incorporate bourbon and coffee. This is hands-down their best offering. If this could become a regular offering, the world would be a better place. What a treat. I think this gives KY Breakfast Stout a run for it's money.

Black body with a big whipped frothy brown head. The retention is outstanding. And lace comes in full sheets. The aroma is absolutely perfect. The coffee aroma is so thick and rich and decadent. And underneath that huge blanket lies some chocolate and roast. The mouthfeel is like silk. Smooth and velvety. Body is about medium or so. Slightly bitter coffee ground aftertaste. The coffee flavor is big and bold in this one. And it blends perfectly with the Imperial Oatmeal Porter base. Seems to be a heavy, dark roast. Sight notes of vanilla and cocoa. In all honesty, I don't get much bourbon or barrel quality in this beer. But who gives a shit?!?!This is the first coffee beer that I'd say can hold a candle to Bell's Java Stout. Hell, this candle might even be bigger.
