Poured from bomber into tulip glass.

A- gives a whole new meaning to viscous beer. Pours a motor oil black with no head. I wish it had some head but whatever.

S- i can smell this beer from across the rooms. Tons of bourbon sweetness. Chocolate, vanilla, caramel.

T- mmmm, has a lot of bourbon taste up frint. Real strong sweet bourbon. Unlike any bourbon flavor i've ever had. Then it switches to a lot of chocolate and it swirls aroubd my mouth. A good amount of heat from the alcohol. The aftertaste has a little bit of vanilla but the chocolate and bourbon definitely take over this beer. In a good way.

M- thick. Extremely thick and velvety. Hot as well my mouth feels hot on the aftertaste.

O- an outstanding beer even three years after bottled! The flavors are so intense on this. It's gunna take me a while to get through this beer because i want to savor every bit of it.
