look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter. Thanks, Corgidad!

A: Black with just a tad of tan foam. No head to speak of. Not much lacing.

S: Bourbon, smoky, oak, vanilla, anise, licorice. You can smell the bourbon right out of the bottle.

T: Mother of God, this is good! Oak-y smooth, robust. Like drinking from a bourbon/chocolate fountain. Cocoa nibs do a tango with Elijah Craig. Just terrific. Flavors enhance as it warms. Alcohol is not overpowering, but that 11% does take its toll.

M: Medium to heavy with medium carbonation. A dry finish.

O: An exceptional sipper. Savor this one. Highly recommended. Overpriced but worth it.
