2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black beer with a big beige head.
Smells coffee, tobacco, chocolate, and a lot of bourbon and a lot of oak.
In the aftertaste you have pure oak! Not a balanced beer imo.

750mL bottle from trade. Best by May 2013 on the cork. Pours cola brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate and spent coffee grinds. Taste starts out dark chocolate, coffee. Finishes vegetal, pepper, coffee grinds. I think I should have drank this as soon as I got it.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle shared by Willrunforbeer best by May of 2013 stamped on the cork. Well it smells fine, very chocolatey. Rich Melted chocolate bar with a hint of roast and the lightest note of bourbon. Used coffee grounds are also here.
Well, I got excited for no reason. The chocolate element and roast are still there but the bean has turned lightly acidic which proves to mean again coffee bean beers need to be fresh. And unfortunately not much of a bourbon character to help save it. I’m sure it’s a different animal fresh but this breweries beer can NOT sit.

21st January 2014
Opaque black - brown beer, small tan head. Palate is smooth and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth airy dark malt, trace of cream. Nice amounts of the requisite dark chocolate and coffee. Little dry wood and very mild spice. Semi dry finish with a chocolate and coffee linger. Does what is says on the tin. Smooth and drinkable.
