Pours super dark with a head that does not linger. Smell is chocolate, brown sugar, bourbon, and a little toffee. Flavor doesn't have the roast of the base beer, which was disappointing. Still, the sweet chocolates, brown sugar, and pinch of booze are really enjoyable. Could use some more viscosity, but the mouthfeel was still pleasant. Great stuff.

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.
