Poured from a growler.

Pitch black body, opaque, dark brown finger of rocky, frothy head. Dissipated to a foamy ring and just looks sexy. The aroma is rich with Belgian chocolate, bourbon, charred oak, burnt cara,el, vanilla beans, roasted coffee and fudge. On the taste, there's this luxurious, velvety chocolate, like truffles and mousse. Mildly bourbon-y with some smoldering woodiness, vanilla, and espresso. Finishes with some mild warming alcohol in the back of your throat. The body is so incredibly silky, smooth, thick and viscous, rich, but not too heavy. Nothing is cloying, despite being rediculously decadent.

I don't have really anything I can complain about this. The flavors are so complex it's stupid, and so drinkable it's scary.

Big ups to Shane for sharing! Very glad we could get a big group together to share this!

Serving type: growler
