Some roast and a little whiskey. Odd note of staleness here like old smokes in Alberta. Black pour with ok head. Some chocolate. Oily and a little syrupy. Less good than their high standard stouts. Tap at Churchkey.

koleminer20 (4091) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2017
Shared at the Prairie Everything Dark/Kill Your Liver Extravaganza at Jeff’s House on July 1. 12 oz bottle, 2013 vintage (I think this is batch 1). The pour is a darker muddy light black color with a thin ring of dark brown head that vanishes pretty quickly. The aroma is heavy roasted malt and whiskey barrel. Holy lord is this thing boozy. There is a light chocolate and a sharpness about it. The flavor is much of the same. The whiskey and oak is huge with a light chocolate and that sharp charred maltiness. It’s interesting. There is a little bit of cardboard and oxidation. The mouth feel is sharp and crisp-ish with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly boozy and sharp alcohol on the finish. This one is just past its prime. Sigh. 6 4 7 4 14

Aroma: lots of bourbon but not too overwhelming; Appearance; pitch black with tan head that dissipates slowly; Taste: bourbony, malty, coffee, boozy; Palate: very heavy body with long, bourbony finish; Overall: very nice, but a tad harsh. Would get again though.
