Reviewed from old notes.

Pours an opaque onyx with minimal medium brown head.

Aroma is very chocolate and bourbon dominant, with light roast and more toasty and nutty character than expected. Dark fruit in the form of raisins and dates adds complexity.

Toffee, bourbon, raisins, and oak dominate the flavor profile, along with roasty, chocolatey malt. Vanilla surfaces late. There's a hint of medicinal phenols.

Body is smooth and thick, with minimal carbonation and a little heat.

Great brew, but I think it will be even better in a couple years.

In a tulip glass the beer was black in color with a medium-sized tan head. There was a smattering of lace.

Wonderful aroma. Both dark and sweet chocolate, coffee. A little vanilla. A lot of booze.

The taste personified the aroma. Sweet chocolate/cocoa, dark chocolate. Bitter coffee. Big booze.

This was a full-bodied beer meant to be sipped. The alcohol is right there, but in a complimentary way.

I loved this beer!
