hhhhmmm, pours jet black into my snifter, no head, no lacing, nothing, kinda disappointing. Onto the smell...
Oh my god! The smell is is amazing. This is a beer that makes me glad to be a beer geek. I could smell this for hours without even taking a sip. In fact, that's exactly what I did for 15 minutes, just smell, no taste, I may have a problem here. Lot's of chocolate, mostly milk. The bourbon smell mixes in perfectly as well as a strong coffee note when it warms up.
The taste is equally amazing. Man, I hate gushing about a beer but this everything I want in a beer and then some. Plenty of chocolate, like the smell, but the bourbon is much stronger on the palate. Chocolate, coffee, and bourbon, all very strong, assaulting your palate, but yet, perfectly balanced.
Slick consistency, low on carbonation, but exactly how I want the beer to feel in my mouth. Ya, perfect mouthfeel. So the beer doesn't look too great. Like a glass of used motor oil, but who cares? Smell it, taste it, feel it tickle your beer geek G-spot like no other, and sit back an enjoy.
