scotchzombie (595) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Pours nearly black with a vocal thickly foamed tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, vanilla. Maybe a hint of bourbon. Sweet and lovely. Jam-packed full of flavor. Starts with dark malt coffee roast and finishes with an evaporating bourbon booze. In between lies vanilla and a touch of chocolate. Aftertaste is not unlike that of bourbon with echoes of coffee and vanilla. This is a beautiful beer, but a touch boozy and quite pricey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very dark brown/black head with mocha head. Smells of mild roasted coffee, dark chocolate, the perfect amount of bourbon, tobacco, molasses, mild vanilla, toffee, mild caramel. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, bourbon-soaked dark fruit, toffee, mild brown sugar notes. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation. Not as thick as other barrel-aged stouts, but still a joy to drink. The 10.3% ABV does start to come out as it warms. A very good example of what barreling can bring to a stout. The intricacies of the stout comes out in the front half of the play, with roasted bitterness dominating the back end and aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
