This one deserves its reputation. I could drink this until I fell down!! Pours a dense dark brown color with no light getting through. Takes a hard pour to get a medium size head, but the head is rich and dark brown in color. Fairly light lacing. OK head retention.
Smell is great. Chocolate, vanilla and coffee expertly blended.
Taste is great as well. None of the flavors stand out. The bourbon barrel flavor is fairly subtle. The coffee, chocolate and malts are more pronounced but they all complement each other in a beautifully blended whole. Very smooth, very nice.
Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. There is an alcohol presence but it is at the back end and not off-putting, just part of the show.
Overall this is a great beer...as enjoyable as The Abyss and probably better. I would drink this one again...any time any place. Outstanding
