look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

pours a pitch black with little head. there is carbonation, the beer is just so thick it has trouble escaping. the head is deep dark brown and disappears quickly and runs off the side of the glass leaving no lacing.

smell is mega alcohol of the bourbon variety. mixed in with a background of smooth caramel and cream.

taste has so many amazing flavors mixing perfectly. dark toffee, mellow caramel, vanilla and bourbon. a hint of the roasted malts can even be noticed.

mouthfeel: although the beer looks like oil, and
feels like oil in the beginning, it somehow leaves behind a smooth film that is pleasant during the entire session.

drinkability: god damn hail satan drink one for baby jesus
