Enjoyed this on tap at Founders brewery during their annual Black Party.

A - Black, completely opaque, zero head, zero lacing, not much happening

S - Bourbon, Carmel, light sweet citrus hops

T - Initial: Sweet Carmel, bourbon, super light citrus. finish: bitter level (6/10), smokey (2/10)

M - Medium/Full body, frothy, low viscosity

O - The look of the brew is not impressive what so ever. But, it is a sweet IPA, bourbon flavor blends very nicely what the carmel malt and dark notes. Do wish the citrus made more of an appearance- it is pretty light. Bourbon notes somewhat dominates.
