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.
