look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pour is jet black with a light caramel colored head. Nose has rich fudge with notes of charred wood and bourbon. Light tobacco note behind with a hint of the fruity sweet berries as it warms. The taste has a ton of sweetness. The rich malt is an afterthought in the flavor and the nice bourbon and wood notes in BCS struggle to even make an appearance. The sweet fruity berries are incredibly strong, overly sweet, albeit bright. Full bodied with soft carbonation and a hint chewy. The sweetness lingers.
