A dark black pour with a red hue on the brown lacing. Finger of head with instant dissipation.
Smells fantastic. Bourbon, coffee, chocolate, licorice.
The flavor is even better, an amazing blend of bourbon, dark roasted grains, sweet and dark chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, vanilla. Fan tastic.
Full body with low carbonation. Thick, creamy, and a pleasure to drink.
This was well worth the patient wait to acquire. An amazing bba stout.

A- thick and black with a thin mocha head. It leaves a nice brown lacing on the glass.
S-bourbon, sweet chocolate, toffee, booze, oak, and spiced rum.
T- bourbon and cocoa forward then some nice roasted, chocolate, and black malts take over. Licorice, vanilla, caramel, and espresso are also lingering. As the beer warms up you get a lot of marshmallow and fudge.
M- thick and oily with low to medium carbonation. It leaves you with coat of sweet fudge and bourbon on your palate.
O- There is a lot going on here and it mends so well. Take your time and really accept all the wonderful nuances this beer has to offer.
