On tap at Michigan Fall Beer Fest. Really good stuff. Smell big on coffee, just like the taste. Really authentic coffee flavors. One of the best of the fest for me.

From notes. On tap at Witch’s Hat on March 17. The pour is a pitch black with a thin ring of dark khaki head and a moderate lace. The aroma is humongous on coffee. There is a little detectable bourbon in the middle of the nose, but there is such a coffee dominance that covers up quite a bit. The flavor is a touch more complex. Initially, it’s all coffee, but then the roasty chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla kick in to drive out a good licorice character. I love the complexity. The mouth feel and carbonation are excellently proportioned and te vanilla-coffee aftertaste is just great.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Update / Tap @ Witch’s Hat: Enjoyed on tap at the source, St. Patrick’s Day 2014. Much like I remember, total coffee bomb on the nose. Big, smooth, roasty coffee beans & a lightly ashy coffee ground presence. Cocoa dust appearance with some smooth bourbon peaking towards the finish with a light induction of oak. Barrel aged influence is a little more powerful than I remember, but still probably the lightest of all the BB Night Fury variants. Slightly sweet creamy coffee & caramelized brown sugar mouth coating with a little bitter roastiness that bites the tongue. Very good barrel aged coffee stout, bumping the score up on this one a point. [Original rating 7-4-8-4-15, overall: 3.8]

Tap: Oily & inky black center with only a bit of dark brown outlining the edges; light-tan head rests quietly as a film. Aroma is straight up burnt coffee beans, oily & roasty with a light oak presence & a small, underlying sweetness. Not much bourbon on the nose... mostly just coffee. Taste is dominated by coffee as well, roasted coffee beans with a mild, accompanying creamy sweetness. Oak backs up the coffee, with a touch of dark fruity in the finish... but this thing is coffee all day & night. Surprisingly light bourbon presence, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
