Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, biscuit, bourbon, toast, roasted malt, dried fruit and espresso. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of coffee, raw sugar, toffee, bourbon, chocolate and licorice. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really good, great coffee notes.

@ Basunen 15-5-16: riktig trevlig söt kaffedoft. Smaken är underbar len av söt kaffe, vanilj och en lite dold whiskyton. Riktigt gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

2014 Bottle: I enjoyed this at the annual Stout tasting in Boise hosted by some Beer Advocate guys (gasp) where they allow some rating whores in from ratebeer. Malty and alcohol aroma with strong coffee flavors. Syrupy feel with a thick body.

2014 Lavender. Coffee and toast aromas. Drinks like a light stout but has a long cocoa powder and cold brew coffee finish. Super delicious with some more fig and raisin finish once it warms up.

Bottle, lavender pearl wax, Boise imperial stout tasting. Dark brown pour with a modest brown head. Fresh coffee, espresso, roast, and moderate barrel notes. Espresso stands out... super high quality and it shows. Light bourbon barrel influence gives it a nice round and sweet feel to go with the java. Top tier coffee stout.
