I normally just taste the barrel aged beers but this one was light yet very balanced with the coffee, chocolate and barrel flavors, just enough on each that I had to order a 2nd pour from draft.

Draft - Light bourbon and balanced dark roast coffee. Deep dark brown with a decent light brown head. Nice coffee and sweet rich toasty bourbon. Another winner.

GABF 2014. Very often I find bourbon ruins beer. Not so here. The palate is very heavy an smooth, lots of flavor with vanilla and oak, light bourbon, and the coffee actually mellowing the bourbon flavor rather than dominating in this own right.

You can smell the coffee in this stout before it even hits your lips. Some people say it is not as good as the original. If you are a coffee man, I STRONGLY disagree!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
2014. Pours jet black with little to no head and decent lacing. Aroma of green coffee, bourbon, chocolate and cherry. Taste is sweet at first with cherry and chocolate, a mild ground coffee, slight vanilla and charred oak. Finishes with a tobacco ash flavor and a warming sensation. Thinner mouthfeel than the regular with moderate carbonation. Good flavor but the coffee had a bit of a vegetal taste.
