This beer's been in my fridge downstairs for a while - I couldn't say exactly when purchased, but it's been at least two years.

It's heavy and black - like a tiny glass of opaque concrete. Very little head upon the pour, with just a bit percolating up, slowly building in a cinnamon brown color and the drawing back. Visible now only like silt on water - all nearly washed away.

Heavy bourbon at the outset, along with big cocoa and coffee - just from the nose, you know it's sturdy.

Velvety in a way like no other beer I've ever had. So huge, yet still mellow with dark chocolate - tingles on the tongue with some tartness. The bourbon is robust as well - doesn't burn at all though. This is one that you can take a small sip and enjoy it for a few minutes afterwards.

Relatively low carbonation - allows the bourbon and other tastes to lead.

Great winter sipper.
