From tap - a little cold

Deep black - opaque swirls of khaki creme on top

Aroma: sweet chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla

Taste: like a dessert awesome bourbon notes, sweet vanilla chocolate and coffee. Very slight booze

Mouth is thick slick and creamy

Overall - this beer raises the bar to wine liquor, you taste and savor and enjoy

Bottle. Pours oily black with sweet smokey aroma. Taste is sweet, boozy whiskey and berries. The distinction in berries is lost on me.

No carbonation, like an oil slick. I prefer the regular and the coffee over this but I appreciate the creativity here. If you like the sweeter, berry-like flavors, this is for you. I'd imagine they fade quickly so fresh is always best here!
