Deep crude oil black with golden tan edges supports a small mocha head. A very small slick of film spans the interior of the dark brown ring of foam. Smells of whiskey and chocolate with hints of coffee. Flavor start sweet, almost cloyingly so, of molasses with brandy soaked chocolate covered cherries. Falvors of oak and bourbon accompany the malty chocolatey goodness and compliment it very well! Roast malt and coffee comes on after the bourbon leaving an aftertaste of bitter coffee. Awesomely complex. Body is full and oilly, but not too heavy and thick to have a large impact on drinkability. Carbonation is delicate, and almost "green". Wow, good uber-stout. If you like the bourbon-barell aging fad, GET SOME! Very very tasty, so I could drink the hell out of it, right up until that 10% abv knocked me on my ass. Strong both in flavor and alcohol, so it can't score pefectly on drinkability.
