caramel, chocolate, roasty, coffee, vanilla, smoke, butterscotch, black, minimal head, white foam, medium sweetness, cocoa, coffee. drinking a 2013 so about a year on age. With a year of age the barrel character has died a little bringing out more of the chocolate left over from the coffee still getting quite a few coffee notes even after a year. drinks so easy a clean. creamy and chocolate. one of my fav. coffee beers. not infected whats so ever.

Came across a 2011 bottle of this. Poured with a small, short lived, fizzy head, no lace. Aroma is coffee, whiskey, black malt, tang. Flavor’s very similar to nose with coffee surprisingly standing out as being still fresh tasting, strong tang as well as whiskey. Body seems a little thin. Kind of seems like it might be on the verge of turning.

On draft at Blue Frog’s Local 22 in Chicago. Pours black with a tan head. Flavors of rich chocolate and coffee with some subtle bourbon and oak notes. Yum!

On tap at Blind Tiger in NYC. Dark brown opaque pour, not overly heavy even though it’s a big stout. Nice little bit of character from the barrel but not overpowering.

ajnepple (4383) - Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Pretty much the last pour before the keg kicked at The Sanctuary. Black appearance with a fluffy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, dark malts, espresso, roast, oak, vanilla, caramel, toffee and just a touch of bourbon. Similar flavor, complex, rich and moderately sweet with a light earthy bitterness. Medium to full body. Wow, pretty impressive overall, especially for free!

"a phenomenal beer, assuming you are a coffee lover. if not steer clear. coffee is strong enough to cut through the bourbon in the aroma and flavor. big time in the flavor. almost too much, but i love it. deeeelicious."

Bottle. Pours dark black, medium brown head, some lacing. Aroma is a wonderful blend of mocha and bourbon, vanilla, and oak. Flavor is not quite there, a bit sour and acidic, light sweet and light bitter. Medium light body.

Countbeer (5726) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle: Thanks jdb288: Served in a Chouffe glass: Lively brown head on top of a deep dark brown to black colored beer. Aromas of wood, some some bourbon, roast, coffee, vinous notes, wet wood, light bay leaf, light coal, light ash, some prunes and fruity wood. Flavours of bitters, coffee, spice, some berries, bourbon/whiskey note, wood, raisin, some toast but more roast, light tart, some berries, some malt roast and sweet coal. Aftertaste is coffee, bitter, faint whiskey and wood note, light tart, some roast and berries. Low carbo, creamy to watery mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a light watery tart texture. Difficult beer, probably has a slight infection, as the tart and berry tones are slightly present. Decent beer.

2013 bottle thanks to Bob. Pours a dark brown with beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is nice coffee bean, toffee, oak. Thin mouthfeel with rich malt, raisin, nice coffee bean, light dryness. Very good.
