Pretty nice. Pours orange without much head or lacing. Some caramel. Some honey. Pretty sweet and I can see the barley wine influences here. Didn’t get much of the coffee though. A decent beer from what looks from the ingredient list like it could have easily train wrecked. Tap at Snallygaster.

6 oz draft pour at Snallygaster 2014, thanks to gendv138. Thanks Donnie! Poured a dark brown color, perhaps a dark muddy orange color with a light tan head. Aroma was boozy caramel, light chocolate, sweet dark fruits. Sweet caramel notes, booze comes through, but is very smooth. Bourbon notes, dark fruits. Certainly a sipper. Enjoyable!

hayduke (3366) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Another great beer from the bottle sharing at Dark Lord Day 2014. Poured into my tasting glass it was brown with tan head. Nose of coffee and alcohol. Not sure much alcohol is there but you can sure smell it. Medium in body. The flavor is coffee first but there is much more going on with vanilla and oak showing as well. Finish is coffee bitter with again the alcohol present. Not sure how much alcohol is here, but my sense is there is a lot. Good stuff

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a dark amber color with a tan head. The aroma was boozy with coffee and sweet bourbon heat. The taste was sweet and sugary with bourbon, brown sugar, coffee grounds and a sugary finish. Very tasty.
