4.68/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a mini snifter glass.
Pours a small tan head. Decent retention for the small layer. Color is pretty much black, but around the edges it is has copper hue to it.
Aroma: Chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, raisins, cherries, plums. It smells hot, but very nice.
Taste: A little hot off the top. Lots of bourbon. It's not bad fore the high abv. Vanilla, oak, and tons of dark dried fruits: raisins, cherries, and plums. Chocolate and earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: A little hot, huge malty beer. A little creamy as well. Full bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. I was told this beer had no heat with it, but it brings a lot to the table, granted that it should, being 19.5%.
EDIT: After being able to drink a lot more of this beer at the Bruery, I have to adjust my scores. This beer is really amazing and I wanted to keep drinking it. Superb.
Overall, this beer is good, but I can see it getting a lot better with age on it. People claim that the abv doesn't show at all, well I am going to have to call that a lie. There is definitely a fair amount of heat showing in this beer. I will be reevaluating this beer once I get to try it again with some age on it.

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.
