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. Nose is lightly sweet but moreso as I stick my nose in deeper, velvety chocolate and coffee, light plummy fruitiness. Pours motor oil-pitch with a fizzt, oily dark brown head. Taste is lightly sweet and very boozy, warming and even singing, bourbon evident but it’s more of a rum-like sweetness, with chocolate syrup normally reserved for ice cream mixing with medium coffee and very sweet plum and red berry. Really a wild mix, lots of compatible, bold flavors flashing and swirling about, complexity in both sugar and malt, but have to go way slow here. Syrupy medium body, if there ever were such a thing, and a fun, if raw, offering.

After a few minutes in the glass, the coffee seems utterly lost in the shuffle while the bourbon aromatics have ascended to dominate everything else.

12oz bottle from dmac! Thanks bro! Pours black with a finger of dark frothy tan head. Aroma of espresso powder, leather, light bourbon, and oak Taste is much the same, with some earthy bitterness, and notes of vanilla, caramel and the finish. Drank at room temp and lots of booziness seemed to come through in the taste, but overall pretty tasty.

Aroma is whiskey, chocolate, coffee, pepper. Very nice. Appearance: pour is thick and dark black. Medium tan head. Taste: a bit off. Coffee and bourbon are present, but also raisin, date, lemon ?. A little smokey, but tart as well. Feel : a bit astringent, low carb. Smooth enough drinking though. A tad disappointed as i am a fan of weyerbacher and stouts in general.

Deep and dark with a small brownish head. Deep roasty malt and cocoa with toast and coffee. Smooth and a bit creamy/thick with a long finish. Quite nice and full.

Pours black with a thin and fleeting mocha head. Aroma has an undeniable banana note atop boozy bourbon and light dark fruits...coffee is present but a bit lost. Flavor has a good bit of dark fruit followed by roasty coffee, mild bourbon, oak, and a definite banana flavor. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and roasty / bourbony/ oaky.

Coffee and wood on the aroma. Appearance is jet black a large tan head that dissipated quickly. Flavor is sweet with strong notes of coffee and oak. Mouthfeel is full with medium high carbonation. The wood leaves an astringency on the end. Overall, there is too much going on in this beer. The coffee and oak are clashing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Never seen a head go away so quickly. This is just way way way way to much time on oak flavor. Totally kills the beer and hides all other complexity

12 oz bottle. Inky brown with a smidge of froth. Nose is coffee, wood, dates, molasses and soft bourbon. Oily medium body with a buzz finishing chalky with heat. Taste is mint chocolate, bourbon, wood and plum; the coffee gets a bit lost but adds a bitter note in the end. Strange stuff.

keanex (1575) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottled March 9, 2015.
Glass: Carton teku.
Appearance: Black body with a frothy brown head on top.
Aroma: Coffee is pungent with hints of vanilla and wood. Great aroma, even if one dimensional.
Taste: Coffee and a bourbon backing, this is rather viscous with huge coffee and bourbon, a bit astringent, boozy finish, but enjoyable.
Palate: Full-bodied, mild to moderately carbonated.
Overall: Very coffee forward stout without much depth and a big bourbon bite. Not bad, but lacking in complexity.
