Pour is chocolaty black with mahogany head that leaves a lovely smattering of lace. Sticks to the glass after each sip with a little residue.
Nose is nice but not as powerful as I would expect. Hints of bourbon, brown sugar, vanilla seem to be most prominent.
Taste is almost mind blowingly complex with each sip. Initially with rich vanilla, coffee, and malty scotch flavors. Then seems to morph into a rich, thick, creamy chocolate on the finish, which lingers in your mouth. Just a slight hint of burn from the booziness.
Feel is lusciously thick and full, but not overwhelmingly. Really quite perfect.
Really happy I got to pick up some of this. Absolutely a must try if you like stouts at all. The complexity is incredible.

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!
