Most would say a coffee stout would not do well with age, but this bottle is a year old and has only gotten better. Fresh I had a touch of bitterness but it has really smoothed out now.

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 (4429) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, 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 as an extra in trade. Pours black with a one finger dark khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, some coffee, vanilla oak, bourbon. Flavor is bourbon heavy though not boozy, barely any coffee, light chocolate, nice vanilla finish. Bit of a Jack and Coke flavor going on here, supplemented by the lack of body. Body is on the thin side with medium carbonation. Overall a nice flavor but seems to need a good bit more body. Doesn't seem like this one is infected so that's good! Not bad but I don't think I'll seek this one out again.

Coffee and bourbon on the nose, this pours out black like oil. Coffee, roasted malt, cocoa, and bit of vanilla on the palate. Really complex.

Bottle to glass. Pitch black coffee pour with a nice creamy khaki head. Nose is coffee, vanilla, milk chocolate. Taste is a great base of bitter sweet roasted malt, chocolate, and huge coffee with a Bourbon ghost finish. Notes of vanilla float around too. I donít think this one was affected by the infection, or itís still too early on.

2014 release Pours black with very little khakis head. Aroma is bourbon and raisins. Taste is sweet with a slight alcohol presence. Mainly of chocolate and bourbon. Palate is smooth with some dryness similar to a bitter beer. Overall a good beer. Doesnít match up to some of the other barrel aged series from Central Waters. Iíd recommend one of the other options over this one from these guys.
