2.25/5 rDev -38.2%
Appearance: Pours a jet black with a cocoa colored head that retains for a bit. Leaves a small amount of lacing on the side.
Smell: big nose with a variety of vanilla, bourbon, coffee smells.
Taste: ...and here is where this falls apart. Such a thin, watered down taste. Where are all the delicious bits from the nose?? Beyond disappointed.
Mouthfeel: for something that tastes this thin it leaves a surprisingly thick feeling.
Overall: so tempted to drain pour this. Something does not add up here.

4.13/5 rDev +13.5%
Pour is a dark hue yet translucent, appearing thin (and invoking worry about the mouthfeel). Dark, medium head. Aroma of tobacco, vanilla, and oak. Very rich, very sweet. Flavor dominated by vanilla, much like a vanilla bean ice cream. Finishes with a sweet caramel note. Very light, refreshing mouthfeel for such a full-bodied beer, but as a contrast rather than detriment.
