Good Saturday evening, New Beer Weekenders. After reading numerous reviews of this years Coffee BCBS from respected BAs I wasn't sure what to expect. It's sort of a mixed bag: good coffee flavor but rather sweet and acidic and a fairly lite in mouth feel. It pours a dark walnut color with almost a finger of frothy, medium-mocha colored head and sheen of lacing. The rich nose offers roasted malt, freshly-brewed coffee, cocoa, caramel/toffee, brown sugar, burnt nuts, and earthy char. It's chocolate forward with acidic coffee grounds, toffee, and earthy, burnt nutty char. The bourbon barrel influence is noticeable but subtle and adds modest sweetness. Overall, I'd describe the taste and sweet and acidic. The mouth feel is rather lite for such a big Stout. The carbonation level is low and it doesn't drink like 13.2% ABV. 4.41/5 rDev -5.6% look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25 I seem to be in the middle on this BCBS variant. It's a nice Stout for sure but not worth $25. I'll review another tomorrow. Cheers!
