From notes.
Poured from a slightly overpriced 500ml bottle into a snifter

A First off this one was incredibly carbonated as the cork ended up shooting out and hitting the ceiling when I opened it. Very dark brown body with a incredibly foamy mocha head. Definetly looks the part.

S Dominated by bourbon and booze. There are hints of chocolate and vanilla in there though.

T Some nice roasty notes, with chocolate and a bit of vanilla. However the alcohol dominates everything.

M smooth body with a very noticable burn.

Overall I thought that this was far too hot for its own good. However it should hold up well in the cellar so if you are willing to be patient and give it some time in addition to spending the money it might be worth it in the end. (760 characters)

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! (421 characters)
