A- Pours a dark brown hue with a frothy 2 finger, off white head. S- Smell is coffee interlaced with bourbon. T- Has a very chocolatey backbone that leads into huge coffee and cream notes. M- Extemely creamy, decadent, the perfect amount of carbonation (low). This has been sitting in the cellar for about a year and I am convinced it has the absolute perfect mouthfeel. D- This was a great desert beer. I dont know if i could have more than one but the chocolatey notes and perfect mouthfeel made me want to revisit it.

Bottle. Pours charcoal black with no head. Lots of coffee and a bit of dark chocolate in the nose. Taste is the same with a nice "chewiness" from the oatmeal. Thick, rich and great on a cold night.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Creamy body of roasted caramel and coffee malt flavors, gaining depth from subtle bourbon underneath. Smooth, long finish, with subtle hops lingering and adding complexity to the rich malt.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a clear amber with no head. The aroma is strong roast, coffee bean, and booze. Thin mouthfeel with nice roast, dark chocolate, light heat, wood, sweet finish. Very good.

> Green coffee and bourbon, maple, brown sugar breakfast stout

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ motorheadtodd ][ Trade ][ Hotel Room Garbage Glass ][ 8.16.14 ]
>> Thank you Todd! Black pour, great tan foam with good retention. Nose begins with green jalapeños, spicy green coffee. Taste is dusty dark chocolate, silkier chocolate, a good amount of brown sugar and maple, warming bourbon. Has a bourbon maple pancake type taste with sweetened coffee. A breakfast stout for sure. Really nice.

Pours black like oil with just a small amount of khaki colored head. Coffee, bourbon, oak, and chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with cocoa and coffee, very smooth.

Bottle as a trade extra from I forget who. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with some light showing through on the pour but not in the glass, with a small khaki brown head. Huge earthy spicy coffee aroma, sweet lactose and chocolate. Flavor is a rush vanilla coffee combo, very smooth and decadent, without the harsh coffee spice. Wow this is very smooth. Not much bourbon, just a hint of oakiness. Medium bodied and very silky, low plus carbonation, lasting chocolate coffee finish on the tongue. Very nice.
