HUGE thanks to largadeer for bringing this as an unsuspected, but enormously appreciated offering on our first night of great beer and heavy metal havoc. I am blown away by your generosity! If this is the beginning, then my liver is fearful of the end...
A - Pours an ominous black, occluding the sorcery and dark magic that is undoubtedly present within this opaque shroud. A dark tan head guards the perimeter with an intimidating presence paralyzing all those that gaze upon it with a terrible fear.
S - Characterized by rage and hate, it burns down the lining of the nasal passage showing no mercy. A blitzkrieg of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, ash and smolten ruins left on the side of a mountain are formidable.
T - The taste buds shake with the palate decimating rhythm of warriors marching into battle. Bourban, vanilla and coffee have stormed through all lines of defense and taken the keep. Heat, ash and smoke are all that remain of this raped and pillaged land.
M - Thick with a heaviness akin to bench pressing a blue whale. Carbonation keeps it lively giving the demoralized a false sense of hope.
D - The gods have surely cursed this upon me. Thor's hammer has smashed my taste buds and Odin's ravens have ingrained themselves into my skull with the ruins of this delicious beverage. It will surely be what the victors drink in celebration...to cool their sore throats and please the Asagods.
Cheers brother, this stuff is effing great!

Pours very dark like FIS and yields a beautiful burnt mocha head, that does linger quite a while. Big lacing on the glass, pitch black - slightly lighter than FIS.
Dark bakers chocolate, cocoa powder, dark roast coffee, oaky vanilla. Not much bourbon but substantial oak.
Very enjoyable, but not much going on. The coffee flavor is pretty one dimensional and the bourbon is not there to my palate.
