Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at AndrewK's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, fruit, and slight whiskey aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and fruity flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a fantastic aroma but the barrel presence seems fairly subdued in my opinion.

LOOK: pours a dark brown with a khaki colored head

SMELL: Chocolate, roast, Irish whiskey.

TASTE: Vanilla, charcoal, chocolate, coffee and a bit of oaky tannins. Ashy smoke, spiked coffee and just a hint of booze.

FEEL: Medium bodied ale nice smooth medium low carbonation.

OVERALL: One helluva beer. Please try this if you can.
