A: Pours a very dark brown with a half finger chocolate head that dissipates quickly, light lacing.
S: Bourbon notes, light coffee, and light chocolate.
T: Burnt chocolate, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, and coffee.
M: Creamy and medium bodied.
O: I love the way the bourbon comes out in this one. Top notch, well done Founders and I can't wait to seek out more!
