Thin, but a nice balance of roast and sweet chocolate with flecks of burnt caramel. Aged quite gracefully.

Huge, brown foam, coal black color.

Aromas are defined by fresh roasted coffee beans and burned malts, with hints of bitter chocolate, almost espresso-like, with biting alcohol.

Begins sugary sweet, with toffee and bready malts. Then an intense bitterness rises up from the back of the palate, which contains a huge load of coffee and espresso beans. Sweeter flavors are still noteable on the palate, but only support the bitterness in a moderate and complex fashion. The Finish adds a warm, stinging alcohol note to the full coffee body, with a soft, smooth, almost oily, bitter finish. Carbonation gets recognizable in the end, as it is very lively, still fitting, adding a subtle copper hint to the dry, coffeeish tobacco character of this beer.

Thin and sharp-tasting. Characteristic bourbon-aged ale taste, but with a harsh, inescapable astringency. Perhaps a bad bottle?

Tried this on draft last night. It was really good! This was my second time having this beer (the first time was from a bottle). I didn't love it as much last night as I did the first time (though I didn't notice any difference between draft/bottle), but I still enjoyed it a lot. Solid 4-4.25. The richness and roastiness stood out to me, and it's very drinkable and satisfying.
