I have had this one so many times, but have never got around to reviewing it.

A: The deepest dark brown. Mocha colored head. Great lacing.

S: Coffee and bourbon.

T: So much going on. The coffee and chocolate are at the forefront. The finish is wonderful bourbon goodness.

M: Medium to heavy body. Medium carbonation.

O: One of the best. This one deserves the hype it gets. So glad I am able to find this one annually.

A: Pours Dark Black with a light carmel head.

S: As soon as it was placed in front of me, it overwhelmed me. Definitely could smell the Bourbon & Chocolate, with hints of coffee, oak, toasted malt. Instantly made my mouth water.

T: Very complex. Flavors coming from everywhere. The first favors to come though was with coffee and toasted malt, then it gives way to chocolate and some alcohol. Lastly you taste the bourbon and oak aftertaste. It's not an overwhelming Bourbon taste though.

M: Low carbonation, with a heavy to medium viscosity.

O: I had waited a long time to try this, since I live on the West Coast. This was everything I had hoped for. Definitely an amazing beer, that lives up to the hype. Was able to get this at 3 Floyd's Brew Pub, to my surprise. I went there for all their beers, but had to try this one before all the others.
