A - Pitch black with almost no head. What little head there is is tan in color.

S - Strong bourbon notes, sweet, chocolate. The bourbon almost smells like soy sauce.

T - Very sweet front, with that soy sauce bourbon taste. Middle is a bit chocolately. The finish is a slightly bitter coffee. The presence of the alcohol is very noticeable.

M - Very thick and smooth. Strong alcohol burn.

O - A very very intense taste and smell. Very sweet, and the alcohol really packs a punch. Not a light and easy drink but very tasty, nonetheless.

Had this both on tap and from a 12 oz. bottle this week. Better on tap but a tough find. Way more boozy and tighter from the bottle, hold a bottle for a year. An outstanding stout with rich, multifaceted flavor. Mouthfeel is viscous perfection. Chocolate, prune, worcestshire sauce, and bourbon flavors all prevalent. More complex from the bottle but eminently drinkable on tap. Makes for an epic after meal sipper. Highly recommended.
