COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, bold, black, and aged in bourbon barrels with coffee beans. The lengthy conditioning period in the barrels creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. Additional flavors include bourbon, vanilla, and oak.

Bottle split with the wife. Pours dark with a tan head that leaves a nice oil slick cap. Coffee is in upfront, light oak, smoke, cocoa. Medium body with a light booze burn.

Bottle. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to edges slowly. Aroma has a good pint of coffee with musty dark grains and a touch of roasted malt. Flavor has roasted malts and coffee with an earthy dark grain note.

Dark brown pour with a slight tan head. Nose is coffee forward. Balanced, some barrel character with a nice hint of coffee, not overwhelming at all. Really nice.

Aroma is coffee, earthy, vanilla, bourbon. Taste is like aroma. Lovely body. Good dessert beer. Not over the top. I think I prefer the regular one over this one. The regular is less sweet. Nonetheless, lovely beer.

Bottle and served in tulip: The initial pour was very pretty but alas the head died too quickly. The nose has lots of liquorice, some vanilla, oak, smoke and faint coffee. The java character is more present on the palate but the malt tones are still dominate and the barrel notes add a layer of complexity but this screams for a bit more noble hop bitterness. Some dark chocolate and still more anise tones. Smooth and sticky but not overly heavy mouthfeel, for a coffee imbued and barrel aged beer it is damn solid palate. Overall, I really like parts of this brew but am left wanting sharper bitters and more lasting carbonation. Good to try once... Liked the Vanilla Bean version more.

From notes. Finally found the long-lost notebook from the 4 Elf Party at Dark Horse on December 13! So, that’s where this was found. Shared by a passer-by for a chance to hang around the campfire we’d built. The pour is a really dark black with a small white head. I was expecting a darker head for a Baltic, but it let me down a touch. The aroma has a lot of alcohol up front. Behind that lies the coffee, lots of licorice, some hints of vanilla and toffee. The flavor is very similar. There is a bit more of a roasted malt in the flavor than the nose led on. The back end tails off into something much more bitter. Lots of coffee ad dark chocolate. The mouth feel is oily, yet slick. The carbonation is soft, but it disappears quickly. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter and roasty. Nice Baltic Porter

500ml bottle pours a black color without much head. Nice coffee flavor that balances well against the barrel and malt flavors. Some sweetness balances the coffee nicely too.
