This pours like black ink with a head. Cool!
Smell contains bourbon and molasses, malts.
Taste is... Well, good and bad, but unfortunately I cannot get over the bad. There is nice rich sweet malts. yummy. But the alcohol flavor is just way too prominent - and it reminds me of generic vodka. Just too much edge. Ickey. So, the taste just fails me.
Mouthfeel isn't bad. Cold it is bubbly enough. As it warms it flattens quickly.
Finish is a bit harsh bitter, and it leaves a bit of an aftertaste.
I just am not screaming "give me another".
There are too many rich creamy RISs out there that do not have the alcohol bite to put this on the top of my list. I would not recommend this particular one.
