Draft to wine glass at Perennialís Third Anniversary Party. Looks good; a slightly translucent dark coffee with tan head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, roast, oak, and a touch of bourbon. Tastes like it smells, but richer, with an incredibly smooth mouthfel, especially with such a strong coffee presence. Outstanding.

Bottle thanks to Daknole! Pours inky black, large dark brown head that is a bit fizzy at the beginning, but settles down to leave nice residual and lacing. Aroma is whiskey, roasted malts, some chocolate, mocha. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, lots of mocha flavors, whiskey, anise, deep roasty notes. Some astringence, from a combo of coffee and barrel, I would assume. Medium plus body, a bit creamy. Lingering heat from the ABV. Solid, not amazing.

Bottle, thanks to Ryan. Near black pour. No head. Milk chocolate, vanilla, roast. Coffee isnít really present, which surprises me. Toast, some bourbon and coconut. Full body, soft carb, oily texture. Overall: surprisingly just ... <shrug>.

2013 bottle. Black with thin brown head that clings. Nose of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Tastes of bourbon, chocolate, coffee. Coffee is very muted at this point. A hint of bitterness. Still quite good after 18 months.

markextrae (1287) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
shared bottle by a friend. poured a pitch black colour with a very small mocha coloured head, compared to the regular sump there was just a small hint of roasted coffe in this one, but ofcourse barrel and whisky notes. a small vanilla hint, dark chocolate, roasted malts, itís again a real big monster of a stout of perennial! but for a coffe stout i was looking for a big strong coffe hint just like the regular sump! i think i liked the regular just a bit more as this one

On tap at the snallygaster beer event in dc it is a thick dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is coffee and the taste is roasted coffee with a long lasting taste that remains on the palate. Yummy!!!

solidfunk (4477) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 15, 2014
This is really good, my only problem is having had the Abraxas right before it. Pours black with great head and lacing. Coffee, thick consistency. Dark chocolate, lots of roast. Some barrel, but well-integrated. Tap at Snallygaster.

madvike (2847) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On tap at Brasserie Vís Great Taste Eve party - Pours black with a tan ring of head. Nose is lots of sweet bourbon with molasses and coffee grounds. Well-balanced. Taste is more bourbon than coffee--sweet, with molasses and coffee grounds faint on the finish.Slick, thick, and not that much carbonation. Pretty tasty, but the bourbon-forward aspect overpowers and makes it a little one-dimensional.
