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!
