Many thanks to Ron, '12 Vintage.

Pours a black color with red offshoot and almost no head, while the beer leaves back a nice lacing.

Smells like a really heavy beer, despite its abv being around 10 %. Has rich chocolate aromas, a blend of bakers and milk chocolate, accompanied by earthy malts, slightly bitter coffee, marzipan and dried apple peel. The Bourbon wraps up all these flavors very gently with a hot oakiness, while being very inviting and intense on itself. Bourbon and chocolate blend together outstandingly well, enriching each other, while apple skin and fudge compliment to the chocolate character generously.

Tastes of smooth milk chocolate, with an outstandingly creamy, mouthfeel, brownies and fudge, along molasses and nougat, blending together very smoothly and convincing. These flavors get successfully balanced by calming, earthy, slightly toasted malts. The chocolate then gets a alcoholic Bourbon note to it, just as in the nose, with hot wood blending extremely well into the rich chocolate qualities of the beer. This reveals molasses, wood and a well wrapped up rich chocolate character. The beers incredible chocolate richness gets joined by a hot, boozy peak in the finish with caramel and a well fitting, lower carbonation, and a hot dryness.
