Pours a jet black-brown color. Has barely any head, and the one it does pour dissipates very quickly. Smells of deep cinnamon and oatmeal. There is a bourbon like scent going on, but that initial scent will split up into different flavors.
Initially, the flavor is very much that of whiskey. But once the initial "shock and awe" is done with this beer, it completely turns head and becomes something quite wonderful in complexity. It feels like a very grainy beer, at the same time it has the viscosity of paint thinner. This is quite the good beer, on par with such beers as Kentucky Breakfast Stout. I daresay, this may be better than previously said beer. This mellows when you drink it and although initially very shocking, turns into a real sweetie afterwards.
And if the price tag were not $22 for a four-pack, I would be much happier with it. An almost perfect beer.

Pours thick like molasses and solid black in color. Head is thin tan and retains nicely.
Smell is incredible, some dark red fruity notes are forward before a nice bourbon and oak aroma cut through the fruity esters. Rich toffee malt with subtle aromas of toasted marshmallow and more fruity esters finish.
Taste follows the nose and is just as good. Dark fruity lightly sweet flavors are forward along with a light bourbon presence and a dry oak flavor. Rich toffee malt finishs along with some light toasted marshmallow flavors in the finish.
Mouthfeel is great. Thick body and mild carbonation keep this a perfect sipping beer. Hits all points, sweet sticky dry lightly bitter, anything you could ask for from a great stout
