Pours very dark like FIS and yields a beautiful burnt mocha head, that does linger quite a while. Big lacing on the glass, pitch black - slightly lighter than FIS.

Dark chocolate, vanilla bean, oak, some coffee and a little bourbon. Really nice barrel character that well integrates with the base beer.

Very smooth, dark chocolate bitterness and some vanilla and oak sweetness on the finish.

Really nice - always up and down with this one, but at 6 months it's at it's best.
