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!

CP filled growler that I've had since the cold winter months. Thanks Steasy66, been looking forward to this bad boy.
Appearance. Pours fairly thick, black, and topped with a finger of pretty dark brown head that had moderate retention.
Smell. Dark chocolate, woody bourbon, vanilla and a little bit of licorice root and prune plums.
Taste. Nice semi sweet bakers chocolate, lots of toasted oak, a dash of bourbon and licorice root, and just a trace of dark fruit. Very nice. The dark chocolate lingers a while.
Mouthfeel. Pretty full body, medium-low carbonation.
Overall. Fantastic stuff. Lots of wood and chocolate, bourbon is complimentary and not even close to overdone. Just how a BB RIS should be imo. Thanks again man, you always hook me up with the goods.

MN town hall glass
A: Pours pitch black. Motor oil. Thin layer of dark tan head. Amazing how for MN town hall growler system works! Still amazing carbonation streaming up the glass.
S: Typical chocolate roast and normal hints. Cocoa puffs. Vanilla and caramel. Some dark fruits maybe. Coffee.
T: Deep dark chocolate up front. Dark roast coffee. Vanilla hints. Medium bodied. Finish is long. This is really drinkable. There is some heat on the back end but nothing overly offensive.
M: Full bodied.
