4.4/5  rDev +8.9%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a glass at room temp.

Clear Cola with a Khaki head that disappeared completely, leaving no lacing.

aroma: imagine pancake batter with vanilla, a few cherries, some brown sugar and a shot of Bourbon thrown in. Amazing.

Mouthfeel: glycerine smooth, good.

Taste:, brown sugar, bourbon, cocoa malt, a rich, a slow sipper.

This is a rich, heavy, sweet, tasty beer. Nice looking, great smelling, with a bourbon influenced feel. Not sure if this was aged in oak but it sure tastes like it.

A - Pours a dark ruby brown with a one finger cream colored head. Dissipates to a substantial cap and sticky lacing.

S - Aroma of chocolate, mildly sweet, with a bit of wood mixed in. Possible black tea as well.

T - Sweet chocolate turning to a dark toffee, bite of bitterness on the swallow. Small amount of the tea shows through in the flavor.

M - Heavy body without being syrupy, quite smooth. Little carbonation.

O - Simple but very good. Usually I am looking for more depth from a beer, but the flavor profile on this one works extremely well with such few elements. You can feel the alcohol after a few sips as it numbs the back of your throat, but I never tasted it. Really well done. Certainly worth trying if you like the dark stuff.
