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.

Bottle at De Garde. Pours a pitch black color with a small white head. A big coffee and huge smoky nose, roast. The flavor is super sweet roast, licorice, smoke, vanilla. A slick palate. Quite good. Comes in big and yet is drinkable.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottled March 2013. Poured 12/25/14. Opaque brown-black with a thing light-brown-beige head. Aroma is alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, banana, sweet, caramel, toffee, roast malts, coffee. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, leather, nutty, banana, slightly floral, earth, roast malt, coffee, alcohol; finish is bitter roast malt, dark chocolate. Oily laces. Low carbonation. Oily but full mouthfeel. Certainly, with the age this bottle has, the coffee has fallen off. Still, quite an excellent example of the style and lagers in general. Nice.

Un corps voluptueux et soyeux supporte les petits fruits sucrés de la levure lager et de l’éventail de céréales. Le café se présente sous forme de mocha et sa torréfaction est minime. La plus ronde est délicate de la série jusqu’à maintenant.

deekyn (1324) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 27, 2014
A - pours an almost opaque cola brown with no head. Bvwry thin tan ring of bubbles. S - nose is a bit sweeter than the base with a toasted simple sugar, caramel, and coffee. The barrel character seems muted by the coffee addition. It's a combo between the grainy notes of the base with the sweet barrel character, with coffee. Sharp boozy end. M - full bodied. Sharp booze up front to a malty palate with coffee bitters end. T - the taste is all the characters of the base and the barrel version with a nice coffee addition. Toasted caramel, tobacco, leather, sweet barrel character and coffee. O - a nice variant. The coffee tones down the barrel character. 3.8

Bottle that I took to RBSDG at the Dad Pad. Pours a deep black with a thin beige head. Roast and cofee, chocolate, warming vanilla tones. Cocoa, warm coffee, no pepper notes which is nice. Supremely smooth, no alcohol showing up. Long roast and coffee, hints of spicy chocolate. Lovely.
