From a bottle, pours a dark mahogany brown, thin carbonation.
Smell is all bourbon and wood, caramel, molasses, a little roast, but its fighting through alot of sweetness. Flavor is sweet molasses, chocolate bourbon balls, lots of booze, still pretty hot. The finish is creamy and milky, sliding down your throat.
Overall, this is a bit hot right now, would like to see it smooth out a little.

A motor oil like black with a khaki colored head. Smells very strongly of slightly burned brown sugar, wood, and bourbon. Taste like cocoa powder, chocolate, expresso beans, bourbon, oak,brown sugar, and dark roasted malt. The bourbon really powers through, especially in the aftertaste. Almost has a rum like burn. It also finishes pretty bitter. This is an outstanding beer. I would say world class if the heat/burn from the bourbon didn't overpower the flavor on the back end quite as much. And I am a bourbon person. Not sure who's barrels were used, but that could be a factor. A sipper for sure.
