Bottle received in a trade with BenH. Pours a crude black with a thick mocha head which hangs around. Aroma is bourbon, roast malts, coffee, vanilla and slight soy. Taste is slight coffee, roasty, hazelnuts, a hint of booziness in the form of chocolate liqueurs and vanilla. The finish is long and sweetness reminiscent of bourbon and cocoa. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Poured mostly black with a beige head. Aromas of coffee and bourbon. Tasted slightly dark chocolate and coffee with a hint of bourbon on the finish. A bit disappointed, as I’ve had each of the base beers. I felt it was quite thin in comparison as to its parts.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Minimal head with some lacing. Aroma is mostly roasted malt, coffee and alcohol. Taste is predominantly coffee and roasted malt with a lingering alcohol burn. Decent barrel aged coffee stout, but not nearly best in style.
