A: pours jet black. Really thick not a huge head but its dark tan.

S: great oak aromas upfront hints of bourbon rich chocolate and coffee notes. Unbelievably balanced.

T: lots of chocolate, bourbon bite is there but doesn't over power the beer what so ever. Coffee follows and oak lingers on the exhale. Unbelievably balanced.

M: thick but the carbonation is spot on. Has a rich creamy quality to it.

O: unbelievably balanced. This is a beer that I'm really Interested in aging however I'm not sure it can get much better.
