I can't believe this is the first time I have had this beer.Pours a jet black except for just a hint of chocolate brown when held to the light,a large fluffy deep beige head atop.Smells like sweet alcohol and dark fruit over top of chocolate and roast.The roast plays a much bigger role on the palate,roasted and charred with caramel and alcohol dipped dark fruit on the palte,I have to say the alcohol lingers.This is an old school favorite and Iam glad to finally try it,it kicks ass.

4.13/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22 oz bottle with a bottled on date of 10/23/13 (so almost exactly 1 year old); into a pint glass.
Appearance - pours like black gold! Sits black in the glass, but against the light, a hint of brown appears at the bottom of the glass. A thick, foamy, hot chocolate shade head forms on the pour, but recedes fairly quickly to a thin layer. Lacing is outstanding!
Smell - brownie mix, mocha and hints of roasted coffee.
Taste - whoa, right cross; full of robust flavors from the first sip! Espresso, dark chocolate, bourbon, and some raisin!
Feel - full body and the 10% ABV is masked very well! Very complex flavors from the bitterness of dark chocolate, the robust espresso, a hint of sweetness from the booze and what I suspect is raisin.
Overall - incredibly tasty brew, certainly worth the purchase! I'll have again!
