tectactoe (1664) - Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Tim. Pours black & oily; an abyss with a mocha, leathery foam covering the top nicely. Aroma of deep, roasted coffee beans, oily & lightly charred with undercurrents of dark cacao & a mild creamy element that brings through a nice, soft sweetness for balance. Lots of delicious coffee on the taste; smooth, roasted, but not acrid at all. Some scorched brown sugar, hints of bourbon soaked & spicy oak, & dense coffee throughout. A hint of bitter cocoa dust & dark chocolate in the finish as well; nice, creamy body. A very nice barrel aged stout & a good improvement over the base (which is already quite good).

Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours very dark brown with a burnt orange head. The aroma has smooth roast, caramel, coffee, vanilla and mild oak. It has a medium / full body that has smooth carbonation. The flavor starts off with coffee, bitter roast, chocolate and some licorice. The finish really highlights the coffee and licorice aspects. This is good, but a bit more coffee heavy than I prefer (well, it is a coffee stout and all).

From a bottle at the Brewery
Pours basically black with and espresso swirl head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is liquor barrel like... one sniff I get Bourbon the next is more Brandy, Iím guessing itís Bourbon barrel aged, but thatís just a guess mydudes. Itís defiantly got some vanilla and a bunch of coffee character to it,

The flavor is sweet and fudge, itís boozy and rich with a bunch of coffee character, a nice roastiness and some bourbon.

The palate is huge on this one.

One thing I will say is that of the three Sump varieties I tried this one had the least amount of coffee character to it.
