A really great beer, the coffee harmonizes well with the bourbon character and yet creates something completely different from a KBS or BCBS, has a weirdly "light" character by comparison, I don’t even know. Thanks Colin.

Creamy mouth feel. Moderate high sweetness. Moderate low bitterness. Lots of coconut and whiskey in the flavor. Pretty fucken tasty.

rxeight (1526) - Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2014
500 ml bottle dated 6/13. Thanks Dany. Pitch black with a thin mocha color ring. Aroma is dark roasty malt. Taste is bitter euro roast. Unsweetened, licorice, smoke, burnt coffee. Favors are pronounced but still restrained. Taste actually builds after you swallow, bitter coffee comes through. Not much bourbon. Maybe a touch on the back. Super drinkable like every HF beer. A little thin for an imperial stout. Otherwise pretty tasty and unique.

From notes taken during a tasting a couple weeks back. Tasted beside the Madeira version. Aroma has a stronger roast character and less dark fruit, which may be why the roast shows through more. More coffee character, but slightly peppery. Moderate bourbon notes and light alcohol spice and oak. Pours black with a dark mocha head that lingers on the edges. Flavor is similar to the aroma with quite a bit of roast and coffee notes with hints of green pepper and chocolate. Moderate bourbon notes with some alcohol spice and light oak. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer. I like that there isn’t much soy sauce in this bottle, but the roast note has a bit of green pepper character. I miss the red wine notes that the Madeira version had.

Genealogy of Morals, batches 1 & 2. The beer appears dark brown, near black, with a thin, bubbly, tan head. The aroma offers oak, vanilla, bourbon, roast, chocolate. Lighter in body than the Madeira version. brighter on the palate as well. Wow, super easy to drink. Moderate to soft carbonation with bourbon and dark chocolates. Delicious!
