look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Big thanks to markgugs for this one. 2013 bottle.

Pours dark chocolate brown to black. Very little head generated. Fades to the sides quickly.

Smell is of cocoa nibs and bourbon. Not bad, not great.

Taste is amazing chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon booze notes. Mingle together very well.

Mouth feel was good when I poured it near 40 but as it warmed up the feel got thicker.

Overall beats KBS, BCBS, and scores a tad under Black Note for the past year vintages. Well done bottle. First of many from this brewery.
