I love the coffee version so much that is almost a let down. The desire to barrel age everything sometimes take away from an already outstanding beer. On its own its fine, but I’d rather take the original.

Shared by someone at Perennial...thank you whoever you are!
Pours black, tan-colored head, spotty lacing, thin collar. Nose is sweeter then I would have thought with less coffee, but it’s still there. Chocolate, coffee, nice barrel notes, smooth booze, cream. Flavor is a nice mix of sweet milk chocolate, coffee, and oak. Full body, rich, creamy finish.
Overall a really nice Speedway variant that I enjoyed more then the regular Kopi and Barrel-Aged version, but not as good as BA Sump or BCBCS.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Smells of coffee take over the aroma, bourbon is there but its subtle.
Ap - Thick Black with a small tan head. Lacing sticks around slightly.
T - Tastes like expensive coffee and the bourbon comes through in a smooth, semi-hot kind of way.
O - Overall great beer for the coffee/bourbon fiends out there!
