Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Perennial stemmed wine glass. Thanks Brian for sharing this long-time want.
On the nose I get a lot of vanilla, chocolate, fresh coffee beans, and surprisingly a bit of maple. Smells like an awesome breakfast stout.
Bold, dark chocolate notes, chocolate covered espresso beans, vanilla-maple coffee, cocoa and bourbon on the follow through. The aftertaste is charred with dark roast coffee flavors lingering for a while. Mouthfeel is good with a medium-heavy body and low carbonation.
Sump is one of my favorite coffee stouts, so it was to be expected that I’d really enjoy BA sump, which I did. World-class beer!
