look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance is pitch black with not even a half finger of brown head that left quickly.
Aroma is oak, vanilla and just enough bourbon. Slight chocolate covered dark fruit.
Taste is so complex. Where do I start. Up front is bourbon and toasted oak. In the middle it's chocolate covered cherries and dark chocolate. At the end its light roasted coffee and baking chocolate. No hint of alcohol AT ALL.
Mouthfeel is so thick and rich. It's like a milkshake. The lingering chocolate bitterness puts is beer on another level. Probably the most chocolate I've ever detected in a beer.
So glad I have a couple more of these.
