look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

Bottled in 2011

A- Pitch black pour with virtually no head to speak of. Some mocha colored bubbles around the edges of the glass.

S- Chocolate, charred oak, vanilla, bourbon, oats, bitter coffee. Full aroma, in your face.

T- All the flavors from the nose are there and they work great together. The chocolate and bourbon are prominent from the beginning and the charred oak is very noticeable towards the end. Oats come through at the end too.

M- Somewhat thin, syrupy and very low carbonation. Not bad, but not the best.

O- The smell and taste of this beer is exceptional. One of the best I have had. Hoping to try it fresh at some point.
