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.

Half snifter pour of blackness with khaki head. Nose is rich and dark, plenty of booze and alcohol notes with. Sweet caramel and bitter, dark coffee. Flavor starts bitter, rich, and boozy. As it opens, more bourbon presence with more sweetness as well. Not terrible but not a top ten. 18042015

Draft pour opaque black with moderate tan head. Nose coffee, chocolate, dark berries, some earthiness, vanilla, and hint of barrel. Taste sweeter up front, currant, dark chocolate, and coffee. Mid palate some high bitter and trace alcohol. Vanilla, chocolate, and very light barrel in the finish. Nice complex beer and love the coffee.

Bottle from alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark chocolate, coffee and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Bottle shared during Jack’s farewell concert. Thanks to Rudkin for this coffee sauce. Pours black-brown with a frothy tan capping. Heavy coffee aroma, with suggestions of baking cocoa. Medium sweet flavor with lots of cocoa, oily coffee, booze. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Heavy chocolate finish with lots more coffee, brownies, espresso, scorched earth. Solid.

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 (9372) - 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.
