A: Black with a nice thick dark tan head

S: Powerful aroma, I could smell this one from pretty far away. Just huge bourbon, chocolate, coffee, vanilla.

T: Everything that they advertise - coffee, cherries, vanilla and bourbon. The important thing here is that the cherries aren't overbearing and neither is the overall sweetness of the beer. It is a very sweet beer, as you may expect from the Bruery but has a great balance.

M: Really nice and thick, coats your mouth

O: This may beat out Black Tuesday and Chocolate Rain for me. The abv is still huge but totally manageable and I could have drank more. Great layers of flavors packed into a delicious huge bourbon barrel stout.

Big beer. Smooth. Not a lot of booziness for a 14% beer. Bourbon coffe and lots of vanilla flavor powers this lightly roasted porter.
