Very thin -no coffee or bourbs on the nose. This beer is flat, has no bourbon taste, has a dead weak coffee flavor. A new beer to the top 250 simply due to the new equation for the top 250 beers list on this site. Probably an ok beer when fresh, but not now.

another phenomenal beer from tyranena. these guys do a lot really well, and have gotten great at barrel aging. the blend is very nice so the coffee isnt overpowering, but enough to complement flavors.

A: Pours dark brown with no signs of life. Flat, no head, no bubbles on swirling, no lacing.

S: Roast, light coffee, no particular bourbon notes. A little bit of prune as it warms up.

T: Rich chocolate and coffee, somewhat bready. Still nothing to really suggest bourbon barreling.

F: LIght medium body, extremely low carbonation, moderate linger.

O: A decent beer, certainly wouldn't hesitate to drink it again, but underwhelming considering where it stands on the Top 250 currently.
