look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

22 oz bottle poured into a Goose Island glass

A- Black with a very small mocha head.

S- Lots of berries, kind of smells like a mix of raspberries and blueberries with a slight jam quality, bourbon, chocolate.

T- Chocolate, bourbon, touch of roasted coffee, berries, jam, very big taste and very well done.

M- Thick, kind of syrupy.

O- Wow, berries came out great, bourbon is great, very happy I was able to get two bottles!

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: This poured an opaque black with almost no head.
S: It smelled like boysenberries and rich dark chocolate, with some coconut and oak.
T: It tasted like sweet berries and rich dark chocolate, with some oak and coconut. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was very thick and chewy with a little carbonation. Awesome huge body.
D: This was delicious! The scent and taste were complex and unique and amazing. The body was perfect, and the finish was smooth. It was too easy to drink, but should be sipped and savored. No need to cellar, although I'm sure it would last. So good.
