Pours out deep, light-absorbing brownish-black and sits dead black in the glass with a good sized deep brown head, fading to a faint skim with tiny lacings forming around the glass.
Smells industriously roasted with scads of charred coffee and deep dark chocolate. Dry wooden tones resonate throughout with tinges of bourbon. Alcohol plumes out like it were an Irish coffee.
Flavor is deafeningly roasty, major clots of dark cocoa flakes and the blackest roast of coffee imaginable. Bourbon takes the lead and dishes out burnt caramel and strong wooden tones matched with bits of smokiness. Finishes mild-moderately bitter with clear and distinct charred malt flavors and the ever-present notes of bourbon.
Get past the romantic allures of the aroma and flavor and you'll find yourself in a near-wonderland of thick and smooth motions of this wet and soppy alternative to motor oil. Fine and mild carbonation, big bold body.
A barrel aged improvement of an already outstanding beer. If you thought red wine drinkers have it bad off after a good session with wine stained teeth and tounges, you will have your own problems when you look in the mirror and have a nice black coating over your lips and tongue Can't get rid of the flavor coming from this beer with a front-end loader.
Caution: it may actually take two to tango.

Served on tap at the Constant Spring in Goshen Indiana.
This is a beautiful inky black beer with a gorgeous golden head that stays around for a little while.
Awesome aroma full of coffee and vanilla.
Huge amount of flavor. Starts slightly boozy, but then smooths out and and the other flavors come through. Massive notes of bourbon and vanilla on top of the awesome coffee and chocolate flavor. Brilliant.
Super silky mouthfeel.
Just fantastic, by far the best beer I've put in my mouth.

Not a stout fan, but this definitely isin't a regular stout. I couldn't have enjoyed this more.
A- Extremely dark with a slight bubbly brown head.
S-Coffee and Chocolate all day, awesome smell.
T-Neither the coffee or chocolate was terribly over whelming and complemented each other perfectly.
M-Full body but not overly syrupy at all.
O-Believe the hype, this beer is the real deal. Real pleasure to enjoy!
