A coffee story. I am not a coffee drinker, still excellent coffee. A lace sheet. Wafting coffee aroma. Dry roast, sugar, black body, coconut from barrel. Medium mouthfeel. Best is its not acidic. Radeks bottle.

Picked this up at Ricks in Alexandria not too long ago. Pour brings a near-black liquid with a thin mocha head that has some pretty good staying power. This is definitely a coffee bomb--the nose really loads in some nice, fresh coffee that is fairly dark and roasty. The taste scales the coffee down a tad bit in exchange for some dry roast and hints of chocolate. Feel is quite nice. This is somewhat thick but dry and roasty. Finishes well. I havent had that many beers from Williamsburg at this point, although the ones I have tried have been quite good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-18-2010

22 oz bottle. Poured as close to pitch-black as possible. Head was small, dark brown, compact. Aroma was was heavy on the roasted malts, chocolate malts, notes of coffee, vanilla, and of course bourbon. This one was not too bitter, and the bourbon barrel did not overpower the brew as you can sometimes find with some barrel beers that havent been cellared for long. Alcohol is low enough that the entire bottle can be enjoyed without that feeling you get from extremely high alcohol stouts.

Didnt expect much from this but must say that this is a beer that really blew me away!!! Liquid coal at its thickest point, deep mahogany edges and a creamy latte head. Aroma is vanilla laced Starbucks coffee...extremely rich, smooth, and robust. The bourbon is present but isnt at all distracting and, instead, seems to play with and enhance the flavor of the brew. Not aggressive or in your face but masterfully put together. Velvety mouthfeel that sticks to the palate but isnt at all cloying. Would love a few more bottles if anyone can spare!!!

j12601 (9689) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle that someone brought to the tasting room at Ithaca during the Le Bleu release. Pours a big deep black with a thin tanned beige head. Spicy jalapeno, roast and char, light wood on the nose. Sweet, tastes like super milky coffee. Big caramel, char and roast. Lingering warm booze. Long and sweet roast.

Pours black with one finger tan head that quickly fades to a small ring around the surface. Nose of oak, coffee, caramel and booze. Coffee on the taste with a long, bitter finish. A little hot for 8%, but the flavors come together well.

Pours a deep brown with deep amber notes and a medium creamy tan head. Aroma of a nice fresh cup of coffee, vanilla, light bourbon, chocolate and caramel. Flavor of chocolate, caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon and great coffee.

Bottle thanks to captaincougar. Pours with a thick and inky black body with a small brown head that fades relatively quickly. Glass coating. Aromas of roasted coffee beans, green, vanilla bean, espresso, caramel gelato, strong mineral/stone notes and light oak. Maybe some dark fruit and licorice. Flavors of vanilla, toasted coconut, java, coffee, vanilla creme brulee. Huge, nearly exaggerated vanilla flavors. Kahlua. Very little barrel character. Light bubbles, big body. Very velvety texture. A very solid beer overall.

22 oz bottle from TheEpeeist. Thanks, Chris! Pours a near pitch black pour, chocolatey and deep, opaque, with a moderatr frothy darker brown head laces ok. Stays ok. Aromas are a rich presence of oak and vanilla, Bourbon spirit, with some rich roasty coffee notes, grounds and fresh roast, touches of caramel, toffee, more chocolate and cocoa. A touch overdone it seems. Initial is roasty and chocolate, sweeter overall, with a mixture of sweet and dark chocolate, decent barrel presence, ok oak, spirit, touches of Bourbon, vanilla. Bourbon soaked raisinets, with touches of chocolate, rich and deep, some good coffee presence, grounds and mocha. Decent warming presence, rich coffee and mocha overall, decent barrel lingers. Surprisingly, the Bourbon falls behind a bit, the coffee and mocha cocoa presence take hold. Bigger, sweeter, but still roasty. A little thinner than Id care for. But the coffee really starts to take hold and a semblance of coffee/Bourbon synergy sees the light. Some cocoa, still a little thin. Still, pretty tasty, some deeper flavors, but not necessarily complex. Tasty, finishes with roasty coffee, pretty big, grounds, mocha, sweeter with some warming spirit and vanilla tannins

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a crema cap. Nose is coffee, molasses, oats and vanilla with a whisper of bourbon. Slick medium body with a tang. Taste is an amplification of the nose with intense coffee, chocolate liqueur, coconut and bourbon. Sticky and sweet, perfect for dessert.
