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.

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.
