A: Dark black opaque color with a short lived head of foam that took off in no time. No lacing, and what appears to be a low level of carbonation. Woul'd've been nicer if it had more of a head.
S: Rich, roasted chocolate malts, notes of unsweetend cocoa and raw molasses. Notes of bourbon and chocolate liquor hide in the background. Java notes swirl in and out of perception's view.
T: Dense dark chocolate flavors come out swinging. A hearty dose of warming alcohol kicks in shortly after, followed by a wallop of bourbon laced nuances: coffee, smoke, wood, grain. Nice.
M: Dense, heavy, thick. A measureable amount of carbonation is noted, but is overpowered by the magnitude of the liquid it's contained in.
D: Fair. It's not bad. Very much a sipper. Seems to be more akin to a imperial java stout, or something along those lines. Well made, just not my bag.
