COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sunday Morning Stout, a barrel aged stout from brewmaster Chris Wilson and his team at Weyerbacher. Aptly named too, as SMS is a stout aged in bourbon barrels with coffee. The best part of waking up.

Reviewing a 5 month old bottle Pours a pitch black body, head is 1/4th of an inch and milk chocolate colored. Head retention is above average and lacing is great. Smell is heavy on the bourbon, a little bit of oak, vanilla, and chocolate come through but its all about the booze with this one. Fresh roasted coffee beans are also detected, hops aren’t. Taste is similar to an irish coffee with a generous pour of bourbon instead of irish whiskey. Burnt malt is also there, acidic coffee is in the finish. Mouthfeel is slightly on the heavier side, suits this style very well. Beer was well carbonated, head added a nice silky finish combined with an alcohol burn in the throat. Overall this beer was very flavorful but the bourbon definitely overpowered everything. For 11% abv it tasted more like 15%, actually reminded me of Tweak from Avery. Would try it again, maybe an additional 6 months of aging would help.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to T-Bois. It pours jet black with a small beige head. The nose is soft, juicy, boozy, rich coffee throughout, toast, toffee, fudge, earthy roast and some bourbon. The taste is rich roast, earthy, espresso coffee, cocoa, warming alcohol, rocky road and wood with some warmth in the finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A bit chewy & hot, but it does have a lot of flavour.

Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell. Thanks to Colin. 2015 vintage. Black, small foamy brown head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, woody with some metallic notes. Body is medium, a little foamy, touch of carbonation. Taste is light chocolate, bourbon, woody booze, Aftershock shots, tangy alcohol. Nice flavour, just a touch too much booze showing up. Good.

Bottle to glass. Pours a thick dark brown to black color with a medium brown head. Aroma is heavy on the coffee, touch of burnt roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts, touch of burnt coffee, not a huge barrel presence. Excellent thick creamy mouthfeel with a lingering burnt coffee character. Overall a very nice beer. Thanks Taylor!

A little harsh and hot on the booze but still a killer coffee stout with plenty of bourbon character

Salmoniform (1227) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with thick creamy brown head that lingered. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, ethanol, coffee, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and creamy carbonation. Taste is sweet with an astringent following and hot finish. Overall this is a good brew but comes across a bit hot as it warms.
