The ladies like it!

Mud brown head shows off incandescent bubbles. Bubbly, circular retention with a little bubble island in the middle. Bubbles, bubbles everywhere. Opaque black.

Aroma is bourbon, glorious bourbon with a big, snarling stout underneath. Molasses, dark chocolate covered raisin, cocoa, oaky vanilla, an alcoholic nose tickle--lotsa depth.

Taste is sweet, burnt brown sugar, dark, bitter roast malt, raisinettes, and plenty of bourbon. Alcoholic heat well balanced by bold flavor.

I have previously used the term kitten puncher to describe big, dark, almost evil stouts. This beer is all that but so, so decadent. It's a sexy kittenpuncher.
