4.6/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours thick black with a creamy one finger tan head. The head settles rather quickly but there is a nice lacing left along my snifter.
All of the special ingredients show up and out in the aroma. Without much effort I can smell the bourbon faintly, and the chocolate and coffee pretty easily.
The chocolate and coffee I taste at the front with a slight bourbon hotness/kick on the finish. With all that is going on the hops are still present and add a nice litter bitterness to what would otherwise be a very sweet beer.
It's as full bodied as they come. It coats the mouth right before leaving a flash of bourbon hotness. The bourbon is not overbearing like it is with Backwoods Bastard but adds a nice extra touch.
A wonderful beer to sit down with and sip on for an hour or more. The tastes and aromas are complex and really work great together.
