750 ml bottle shared at Kentucky Brunch Release (Decorah, IA). Pours a deep dark opaque blackish hue, a frothy tannish head dies to a frothy film, laces ok. Aromas are stark coffee, toast, roast. Some mellow dark cocoa, toffee, and roast. Some vanilla, gentle oak, the spirit doesn’t show up much. Initial is thicker but not full, good rich coffee, roast and toast. Touches of toffee, toast, espresso. Middle is big coffee, java, some oak. Really nice rich coffee presence, cocoa and dark cocoa is mellow. Backend is roasty, big coffee, mellow oak. A faint waft of spirit. Pretty inviting for coffee lovers, touch of spice and heat as we finish up. Cocoa, some thickness, vanilla and a touch tannic. Cocoa, whiskey, rich espresso finish. A really well put together beer. Mellow oak, could use a touch more barrel element but the coffee is rich and the experience is synergenic. Tasty.
