look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Another split with rudzud.
Super super dark black pour, thick heavy motor oil pour, dark mocha colored head with little lacing.
NOse very nice, with a Black Tuesday crossed with Hunaphu kinda, super dark chocolate malts, cocoa dust, expensive Belgian chocolate, caramel, etc, into nice bourbon and barrel, vanilla barrel. If I really dig deep I can get some choc covered cherry notes, also some interesting raw cookie dough like malt aromas, but so much choc fudge and bourbon with nice malt base.
Taste big dark malts, sweetish with lots of cocoa, dark chocolate and Belgian cocoa, etc, Super dark black malts, into lots of vanilla and barrel, nice bourbon without going bourbon heavy, mostly nice vanilla barrel rounding. with a mild booze warmth and heat, nice fudgey dark malt chocolate, etc, with some little coffee and roast. Finish brings more cocoa, vanilla, some bourbon barrel, a nice coffee comes through more, little booze heat, even coffee grinds coming through, little booze, sticky and semi sweet coming, light alcohol overall though.
Mouth is heavier bod, soft and creamy, fair booze, nice carb, etc.
Overall this is awesome, great base beer, nice barrel and vanilla, nice fudgey, decent coffee and roast, nice bourbon, etc, booze hidden well, etc.

Split with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a super dark black hue with some thin mocha head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin halo.
S - Aromas of huge vanilla, great bourbon notes, barrel, coffee, just awesome. I really don't get much cherry. Big chocolate, vanilla, fudge cookie dough notes.
T - Taste is delicious chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, light coffee. Great roasted malts, no cherries but great chocolate and vanilla.
M - Mouthfeel is nice and creamy, alcohol is hidden nicely, goes down easy.
O - Overall this beer was very tasty, quite tasty, awesome chocolate and vanilla and bourbon. I laugh at the people who thought this might be infected...so you discover lacto in a lab, that's not surviving the almost 15% ABV! Hahaha
