4.78/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Holy mother of dark beers,this is as black as they get. Dirty motor oil with the same visible viscosity,thick and mid-night black. The head is smaller than your average stout,but I can tell already this is no ordinary stout,no lacing,but I'm not one to complain with such a huge ABV. This smells of Bourbon and oak mostly with chard burnt notes that smell like a pair of jeans the morning after a fall wiener roast. This is a sweet malt monster coating the pallet with caramel,chocolate,bourbon is very pronounced,lots of aged barrel and earthy burnt oak flavors. Alcohol becomes more apparent as this warms. The mouthfeel is over the top,this is one heavy/full bodied mofo,and I love it,I do wish it had a touch more carbonation to round off a more creamy feel. This is a serious beer,enjoy!!
