look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Just an awesome beer. Thanks to Binnys for saving a bottle for me in the back.

Appearance is jet black viscous. Tan coffee head.

Smell is chocolate, coffee, some light bourbon notes. But very unassuming for the abv.

Taste is unbelievably smooth. Just as advertised this beer is world class.

Mouthfeel is thick and it really coats the mouth. Syrupy even, but in a good way.

Overall just a great beer, get it if you can. Or attend the release up in Grand Rapids and try to remember your time there after you have had a few of these!
