look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with an ample dark khaki head. A thin collar persists. Nothing else on the surface.

Smell - Really boozy. Singes the nostrils. Dark chocolate. Oak. Bourbon. Charred, intense oak.

Taste - Sweet, but dark chocolate. Bourbon and vanilla barrel character. It has a chalkiness that isn't desirable but at the same time isn't wholly unpleasant. Just is. Bitter oakiness in the back. Gives it a brief hint of acidity.

Mouthfeel - Very creamy. Medium carbonation. Heavy and boozy, but to be expected.

Overall - I remember really enjoying XIV, but I don't remember this chalky oak. Maybe it was there and I didn't notice it. I still have a bottle, maybe I'll go back it. But not after putting this monster away. Good grief, it's a big 'un.
