COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At 10.5% abv this black as night ale is aged in Four Roses Bourbon Barrels for 6 months. The Bourbon Character of the barrels comes through nicely and pairs exquisitely with the rich dark malt flavors of coffee and chocolate. This is a rich beer that is made to be a full palate experience. Pair this one with a piece of dark chocolate or a side car of a nice bourbon and your night will be complete.

Tap at Apex, post CBC A: Pure black body, legs, cappuccino head. N: Bourbon to start - coconut, caramel and vanilla - over cocoa, coffee, and roast. More coconut, raisin, fig, and more chocolate. T: Sweet, oaky, and a hint bitter. M: Heavy, oily body, no alcohool presence, soft carbonation. O: This reminds me quite a bit of Super Nebula. Which, as you’ll see, is a beer that I greatly enjoy. I hope Wicked Weed sends more beer to Oregon at some point.

On tap at APEX for CBC. Pours a jet black color with a small white head. A big boozy nose of cocoa, chocolates, ash, bourbon. The flavor is a dry roasted malt base, robust dark fruit, ash, vanilla, some heat, chocolate. Mint. Very good.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a brown head. Chocolate and bourbon aromas. The taste follows suit with vanilla, oak, and roasted malt notes. Good body and mouthfeel.

magsinva (950) - Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Tap @ Wicked Weed Funkatorium - pours dark drown with a tan head. Aroma is bourbon, chocolate, oaky vanilla, and booze. Again a nice balanced stout with the bourbon highlighting the base stout and not overwhelming it. Overall, yum!
