look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
a: Poured into an elongated tulip glass, black as night, with about a finger's worth of head that dissipates quickly. No lacing to speak of.
s: Served a bit too cold to really get at the bouquet, but the smell of coffee is still obvious.
t: Strong taste of coffee up front, with some notes of vanilla on the back end. No bourbon to speak of.
m: Velvety smooth, with a bit of carbonated bite at the back.
d: 11.2% abv makes this a one and done, although it's hard to refrain from knocking more than a couple back...
Serving type: on-tap

Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
