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.

The KBS Killer. Bottle given to me by a generous friend. Pours pitch black, oily brown head with no lace. Smells very sweet a boozy, vanilla, fudge. Tastes sweet, bitter, boozy, winelike. A little hot. Coffee bitter too. Starts to really develop as it warms. Really good, I think I still prefer KBS though.

Take 1 part coffee + 5 parts whiskey + 1 part beer = Sunday Morning Stout. For me absolutely disgusting. I had to spit it out. To add insult to injury was how much I paid for it. This is so bad I wont even give it away to my friends, else they will hate me for life.

chucklemation (1576) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2017
Pours a jet black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is bourbon, roast, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and dark fruits. Flavor is chocolate, toffee, roast, coffee, bourbon, and cola. Somewhat sweet. Has a smooth, full body. Delicious.

12 oz bottle. Pours a motor oil black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, bourbon and oak. Taste follows, thick chewy chocolate, coffee and just a touch of bourbon. Wow just Wow! What a beer.

Braudog (6582) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2017
Bottle. This has a very nice initial appeal, with a tan fizzle of top foam, but it almost immediately disappears, with the beer settling into a nominal, very black/dark beer. The aroma is rife with alcohol and coffee. The beer drinks with a very stout (ha) character, boiling over with whiskey burn, and a distinct coffee bite. This delivers all the flavors promised, but IMHO Id prefer it with a little more air and body. Still damn good. (#6558, 4/6/2017)

obguthr (6187) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2017
Bourbon and dark chocolate nose. Black, thin tan head. Charred oak, almond, prune, and molasses. Maraschino cherries in the finish. Full body, viscous, soft carbonation, a little warm. Very rich, quite a meal in itself.

3/23/2017 (draft at Lucky Dog Grille in West Chester, OH): Weyerbacher Sunday Morning Stout is black, thick, rich, and delicious! Smooth espresso with plenty of dark and semi-sweet chocolate, real vanilla, warming bourbon, and touch of charred oak. Very complex with multiple layers of wonderful flavors. Very warming, but not sharp or hot alcohol at any point. Very well-crafted beer. Its really nice to see Weyerbacher making an effort again in this area. Overall, this beer is super good and Im glad I had it, but its still not worth $9/snifter... RIP OFF!

migwell (348) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2017
This is the third brew in a row which I have given a vigorous pour only to get some foam and have it fall flat! (Smuttynose Single Digit and Innis & Gunn Original were the two others.) Bad luck! Its pretty flat, get over it. It is also ridiculously strong and a thorough search fails to reveal any bourbon flavor. So, on to the positives. If you like the kind of brew that smacks you over the head with a 2x4, this is for you. Aroma of coffee and booze. Big, full coffee flavor that matches the nose, slightly burnt, darkly sweet, darkly fruited and boozy. Its tasty, full bodied, well balanced, and complex enough to entertain your palate as it knocks you off your barstool. Be sure to get a large glass of water on the side to dilute the effects. This could be amazing on nitro. Good effort, but probably the last thing I need on a Sunday morning.

jt78 (8) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2017 does not count
Nice thick stout with a balance of bitterness with a faint coffee flavor pretty good little bit of a booziness to it but its 12.7% alc so to be expected. I would rate this one pretty good compared to other similar coffee stouts Ive had not the best but still very tasty.

chinchill (4762) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2017
12 oz bottle on a Sunday morning at the Spirit of Suwannee Music Camp. Bottling date of February 2016. Mild sweet bourbon, roasted coffee, dark chocolate and faint dark bread in the nose. The flavor is a bit boozy, moderately strong for style, and sweet up front. Coffee and mild bitterness characterize the finish and aftertaste. Full, slightly oily, smooth mouthfeel. Light carbonation.
