Again thanks to Miketd and Fiver29 for hooking this up for a small Friday tasting.
A: Deep cola black hole looking color with a small but sufficient head. Decent legs but not much lacing.
S: Interesting. I imagine taking some cocoa nibs and soaking them in soy sauce. After that you would take that old bourbon barrel you have out back that your Uncle Cornelius picked up for you that you thought would be good to throw some of your Aunt Mae's famous maple syrup in. Now throw those nibs in that barrel and add some grain to the mix with a little malt. Shake vigorously chill and serve. You would have just recreated Black Tuesday.
T: Read my thoughts on the smell of this beer and translate that to your taste buds. Pretty straightforward.
M: Definitely the highlight of this brew. Viscous. I should probably just keep a spare bottle in my car in case I start leaking oil. Good carbonation.
D: 25.4 oz = 24 hours. Definitely something to share. I have to say this is a very unique and interesting beer. I don't feel it is worth all the hype, some maybe but not all of it. Very good don't get me wrong but you Cali guys can just keep holding on to those bottles for yourselves.

Poured into a tulip glass
To preface i was cery skeptical of this beer tasting like straight up liquor because of the alcohol content.
A- jet black with very very little brown head that turns into nothing very very quickly. Man this looks good. Getting lost in its appearance.
S- bourbon. Sweet caramel and vanilla. The chocolate comes through at the end and sits in the nose for a good while. The smell is very very sweet almost like candied soy sauce. Sounds weird but it's very good.
T- chocolate with hints of coffee. The coffee is very faint but the chocolate leaves a bitterness like dark chocolate does on the tongue. Then te bourbon comes in and swirls around the mouth. The booze is hot but it blends so well with the malt and chocolate. The sweetness from the bourbon doesn't overwhelm the flavors at all. This tastes amazing. Can't find anything wrong with the taste.
M- incredibly smooth for a 19% beer. Not much bite from the carbonation either. Can't believe how smooth it is.
O- a very delicious beer that really captures the style. Gotta drink it slow though. Very hard to find something wrong with this beer. To me this beats out BCS because the sweetness from the bourbon blends way better in this beer. Glad i have another bottle.
