Pours a thick black, with almost no head, and as you consume this tasty beverage almost no lacing is left behind. The nose is dominantly coffee but some dark chocolate sneaks in as well. I was surprised by the lack of bourbon smell. When you take your first sip you get a mixture of dark chocolate and bourbon that hits you simultaneously. As you swallow a slight bitterness takes over, curtesy of the coffee notes. Extremely well balanced, there is no overwhelming flavor just a superb blending of everything I enjoy in a stout (which even though it's listed as a black ale, make no mistake it is a stout). Tremendous beer.

Outstanding beer. Poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: a huge thick (2 inches at least) of intense bright brown head. Beer super dark, pitch black.

Smell: chocolate, maybe subtle notes of licorice, not too much to offer here.

Taste: bitter chocolate with sweetness to follow it. Maybe some dark fruits. As the beer returned to room temp, black licorice became much more prominent. Maybe not so complex in flavors, but very rich and decadent.

Mouthfeel: super thick and rich. Knife and fork would be helpful. This is a heavy one.

Overall: outstanding! Surprised this is year-round and not seasonal. It's nice that this solid beer is readily available.
