4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black pour with no head. Amazing aroma of fresh ground coffee and chocolate. Tastes of BT with a strong but very smooth and creamy coffee flavor. My favorite BT version yet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Inky pour, low carbonation. Nose is red bell pepper, diner coffee, hazelnut. Taste is spicy, sugary, some sweetened coffee, like a coffee and doughnuts breakfast. Palate is thick, sticky, syrupy. Not my style, but very thankful to try this one. An improvement over the normal BT.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours dark brown, no head.
Aroma: Strong dark roast grinds a whiff of bourbon.
Taste: Wood, coffee, roasted malt. Bourbon in the finish.
Mouth. Full bodied not as thick as og version low carbonation.
Overall: One of the most amazing coffee beers I’ve had. I don’t doubt freshly ground dank ass coffee was grinded into the beer minutes before it was served. Hope to see more of this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black in color with no head. Amazing coffee aroma to this. Very fresh, dominates the nose. Very minimal vanilla on the nose. Some mild booze, dark chocolate, and a hint of bourbon. Some intense coffee on the palate, too. Sweet brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, alcohol, and more coffee. A slight nuttiness in the background gives a little hazelnut character. Quite nice. The coffee really mellows and balances the beer out.
