The beer comes in a dark black color.

The aroma has tons of bourbon, aggressive oak, dark chocolate and cocoa.

The flavor follows of fudgey chocolate, light roasted coffee and roasted malt, almost burnt notes a smooth cocoa and brownie, vanilla on the finish. There's a hint of dark cherry.

In general, this beer is very smooth and chewy. The bourbon does not pop out at you, but instead mellows out the beer with thick flavors throughout.
