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.

Bottle at home from wanderincelt87. Pours black. Little head. Little to no aroma. Weird. Taste is semi sweet coffee, light espresso, faint bourbon, oak and vanilla. Thick, syrupy and smooth. Low carbonation. Great flavors, but I wish there was more on the nose.

12 ounce bottle. Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and bourbon. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, bourbon, and chocolate. A bit too much coffee for me, but probably could learn to enjoy this more.

Not bad, there has been a lot of Facebook posts on this one. I like coffee beers but ahh ok.

Bottle from one of my recent arrivals on my porch, I forget who sent this, but many thanks to whom ever it was. Pours the part with a quick flash of a head. Solid coffee, light bourbon. Light body and solid boost. Perhaps the best beer mr. Bacher has packaged in some time.

Thanks Jeremy. Pours a viscous piceous black with one finger of burnt chestnut brown head. Nose is earthy and shows bourbon barrel and wood, some brown sugar, dark fruit skins, alcohol, molasses, and coffee. Flavor shows some bourbon and wood with alcohol shining through, coffee, fruit skins, and a medium full body and warming finish.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle courtesy Alex R. Pours a dark brownish color, decent amount of tan head. Aroma coffee and burnt oak, some vanilla and cacao. Body rich and roasty, a little thin, perhaps another six months would really make this top notch.

Bottle. Pitch place pour with a 1 finger mocha head. Aroma is bourbon, coffee, chocolate, fusel alcohol, maple and vanilla. Taste is similar but focuses more on the coffee and adds a bit of a vegetal green pepper thing. Finish showcases the sweeter oaky vanilla aspects. Mouthfeel is on the thin side with moderate carb and a sticky mouthfeel. Very boozy. All in all very nice, although perhaps the hype is a little high right now. I totally get the KBS comparison but I think KBS is probably a little better.

tectactoe (2979) - Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle: Oily black body with a soft, creamy almond foam that forms on top. Aroma is semi-acrid with notes of stale coffee beans, roasted malts, mild char, & a bit of booziness from the bourbon. Maybe a touch of vanilla? For some reason I get that same staleness from the coffee in the flavor. Kind of acrid, almost astringent. Sharp? Roast, charcoal, burnt caramel, bitter cocoa beans, charred oak finish. Mouth feel is a bit thin for the size & style. People comparing this to KBS are crazy. It’s good, but far from great.

12oz. There was some talk locally of a competition between this and KBS. This is not KBS but is a very nice drink. A little heavy on the alcohol and bourbon make this a little more of a sipper. Base beer with some coffee and a light roasty malt backbone. Good sweetness to round out the alcohol a bit. Aroma is caramel, bit of vanilla, and some chocolate. That part is actually pretty nice.

Arrived at my table with a thick tan head that held until nearly the end of the tulip. Aroma is huge coffee(like grind coffee in a grinder) solid amount of roasted malts and just a trace of bourbon. The flavor is a reflection of the aroma with a nice lingering warming after the sip. The over 11 % ABV can not be hidden in this monster! The mouth feel is medium leaning on the thinner side but do not worry.... The coffee and bourbon notes make up for it. My kind of stout, the coffee works so brilliant with the bourbon. Love it
