Pours out into the glass with a rich, foamy head. It has a strong, potent smell with the essence of vanilla and bourbon. The color is jet black.
Go for a taste. The beer has a heavy, thick body, packed with flavors. The alcohol is not subtle here. It smacks you pretty hard, but at the same time there is a smooth drinkability in each sip.
A very mild hoppy tingle lingers on my tongue.
Excellent beer. Strong. As I noted, the 9% ABV is not well hidden, but it never takes away from the flavor. This is really good, quality beer.
