4.33/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Beautiful used motor oil blackish brown in color with deep khaki brown head. Good carbonation with some lacing.

Deep roasted coffee malts on the note. Not much abv present on the aroma

Taste. Again dark roasted scorched black coffee with mild chocolate notes. Although this was not the BA version, still sensed some vanilla/oak sweet tones followed by a little bitterness. The high abv well blended in the flavors.

Good mouthfeel, smooth on the tongue and senses but very bold, especially after temp increases. Excellent sipper. Powerful brew.
