COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sunday Morning Stout, a barrel aged stout from brewmaster Chris Wilson and his team at Weyerbacher. Aptly named too, as SMS is a stout aged in bourbon barrels with coffee. The best part of waking up.

4.1
Adamsville (396) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2017
Apparence : Noire, col brun alimenté par une carbonatation active. Rétention faible.

Nez : Chocolat noire, vanille, alcool, léger café.

Goût : Malt grillé, chocolat noir, vanille, sucre grillé, alcool bien présent en finale avec une légère amertume.

Sensation : Plutôt dense, chaleureuse, bonne longueur.

Bref : Base intéressante, fut qui la complémente très bien, plaisir assuré. Évidemment, d’aucuns seront prêts à critiquer cette bière pour la très grande présence de l’alcool en bouche. Ce qui n’est pas faux. Pourtant, j’ai trouvé qu’avec le malt grillé, le chocolat, la vanille et le sucre grillé, l’aspect éthylique n’était pas déplacé. Une bière ‘’tablette’’ de bien belle qualité.

Strong alcohol and robust malt aims. Black color with not much for a head. Moderate sweet beginning that gets somer in the finish and develops a good amount of bitterness. Thick palate.

Bourbon, bitter coffee, and a sweet finish. This is one of my favorite beers and I wish I could get it locally.

Butelkowane 01/11/16 (BB 01/11/18). Poranna niedzielna kawa i ja to kupuje. Czekolada na drugim miejscu. Rozgrzewajace. Jakby mi ktos powiedzial, ze warzone z papryczkami - uwierzylbym. Bourbon jest tylko dodatkiem, absolutnie sie nie pcha przed szereg. Alkohol dobrze ulozony po ponad roku w piwniczce. Kawal dobrego piwa.

Stoned99 (1684) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2017
341ml bottle, gift from trade. Thanks Hugo S. Aroma: whiskey, rye, alcohol, lots of coffee, chocolate, vanilla. App: dark black, minimal brown head, no retention, no lacing. Taste and palate: some chocolate in mouth. full body, medium high sweetness, moderate carbonation, light acidity finish that helps to manage all this big sweetness. Overall: good stuff. Enjoyed the aroma quite a lot, even though would have thought this was avec in whiskey casks rather than bourbon. Also glad there is a good acidity base making this beer feel less sweet than it really is. A great "shelf" beer.

355ml bottle (thx, Peter K.!) bottled on 2016-01-25, BB 2018-01-25. Pours an almost black with a quite fast disappearing dark brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, fruity notes. Taste is similar with some odd grainy notes on the background. Good stuff.
