look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

poured into a snifter

A- pours pitch black in color with a small creamy khaki colored head that retains nicely, leaving some lacing behind

S- it has some funky vegetal aroma up front, but then opens up with notes of bourbon barrel and dark chocolate malt, toasted marshmallow and brown sugar, with some leather/tobacco, raisin and vanilla close it out

T- leather and tobacco flavors up front mix with vegetal flavor that follows the aroma, notes of bourbon flavors kick in with oaky vanilla, followed by dark chocolate and fig, herbal hop finish

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a silky finish

O- the vegetal aroma disappeared as it warmed up, giving way to nice bourbon and chocolate notes

Not a bad extra from a trade. This beer does not smell as good as it tastes. Overall it's pretty good. Not as good as other Ohio RIS's but worth a tasting.
