Brewer Description: (from website) Gesha village in Ethiopia is said to be the birthplace of coffee. Not only does this region offer up the longest coffee history, it also boasts some of the best stuff in the world. This stout is a celebration of that heritage. And a way to show appreciation for some personal close friends in Ethiopia that are part of a handful of incredibly rigorous coffee growers.

Intro: A 330ml bottle, bottled on 8th June 2018, and with a best before date of 8th June 2019. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a thin mocha brown head that dissipated quickly and left some nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasty malts, chocolate, brownies, coffee, vanilla, a light nuttiness and just a hint of bourbon.
Taste: Lightly sweet, roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a hint of syrupy caramel. Light bitter finish. But, I’m not getting much bourbon here.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, sticky, full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Very nice roasty flavours but only light coffee, and I’m not getting much or any of the supposed bourbon notes. Still tastes great overall though.
