S: Very sweet chocolate with a prominent whiskey note. Vanilla wafers, somewhat malty, slight mocha notes.

L: Fairly syrupy, dark black, little to no head.

T: Sweet chocolate up front with a pleasant coffee notes. Whiskey sweetness follows. Low bitterness with additional milk chocolate and whiskey. Finishes with a touch of coffee flavor, minimal roast. Fairly sweet finish. A grainy note as it warms.

M: Medium bodied, slick, but not very heavy. Alcohol makes a presence. Low carbonation.

Really liked this iteration over the normal version. Solid stuff, but not quite great.

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

Jet black as all good barrel aged beers should this had initially a very fizzy head that had an island of thickness in the middle. I poured a second from the 2012 bomber and got a much more cohesive thickness. The beer laced in sheets and poured with a superb thickness.

The aroma is quite vibrant with elements of bourbon, coconut, creamy vanilla, hints of chocolate and a nice malty finish.

The flavors are more bourbon at the front with a touch of harshness. The middle taste is the tell tale coconut and vanilla with a real chocolatey finish. Seldom do I enjoy an aftertaste more but the foretaste is a little harsh to the palate. The chocolate aftertaste is quite full, Very flavorful and the best part.

The feel is silky smooth, full and creamy with almost no carbonated presence.
