Weyerbacher Brewing: Sunday Morning Stout

Over the weekend, Easton, PA's Weyerbacher Brewing released their beer Sunday Morning Stout in 12 oz. bottles and kegs.  They had a release event at their Line Street brewery, hosting Milford, NJ's Fieldstone Coffee Roasters and the Mucho Bueno Food Truck.

Fieldstone roasted the coffee blend that Weyerbacher used in Sunday Morning Stout, and was selling the blend by the bag and by the cup.  Sadly, I neglected to try the coffee or pick up a bag of the coffee!

But the beer, yes, the beer.  I definitely picked up my fair share of Sunday Morning Stout.  Ringing in at 11.3% ABV, this imperial stout was aged in bourbon barrels and had the Fieldstone coffee blend added to it.

When Sunday Morning Stout came out of the barrels and was bottled, it poured a jet black monster with a large brown head.  It was brimming with the vanilla and alcohol characteristics reminiscent of bourbon.  You are getting just what the label says, a stout aged in bourbon barrels with coffee.

Now, aging a big imperial stout in bourbon barrels is definitely not a new thing.  When the bottling of Sunday Morning Stout was announced I was immediately interested, but also a little wary.  With so many barrel aged stouts out there, would this one stand out from the crowd?

Sunday Morning Stout does stand out.  I hate to use this adjective, but this beer is smooth!  The bourbon is very prominent, which provides a little bite.  But overall, this stout is fluid.  If you're into the style, give Sunday Morning Stout a try!
