12 oz bottle, split. The appearance is a beautiful black with a red-tinted head. There was pretty good lacing that faded with time. I get a lot of coffee and chocolate in the nose, along with some more subdued bourbon aromas and a hint of alcohol. I was blown away by all of the flavors that were going on - strong coffee and chocolate to begin, with oak and vanilla on the tail end. There is also a pretty decent alcohol bite. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Overall this was a nearly flawless beer, much as I expected it to be. I do think the alcohol bit just a bit too hard, although that's to be expected with an 11.2% beer. This one definitely delivered on the hype.
