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

Episode IV, 2012.

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 form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, vanilla, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but I think this one was probably better when it was fresh.

Serving type: bottle.

Pour is jet black with no head at all. Nose is wood, bourbon, cocoa, hint of licorice, black olive. Body is a bit thin especially in the finish, fairly rich malt and cocoa with a decent bit of bourbon. Back has a lot of charred malt and wood and gets a bit acrid. Flavor is much thinner than I thought and body hurts it there as well. Finish is also quite sweet and seems to have a good bit of sugar left over.
