Have had bottled and on tap. Seams like there's more flavor when served from a bottle.

A. Real thick black with a small dark brown head.

S. Strong bourbon, chocolate, and coffee.

T. Flavor packs a punch and lingers wonderfully after being drank. The perfect amount of chocolate and coffee.

M. Goes down real smooth. Just a little more syrup than most would like but not bad.

Overall I have to say that this is the king of stouts and the only beers that stand near are the variations which furthermore prove my point.

Serving type: bottle

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: black and syrupy with a dark brown head a couple cm thick.

Smell: bourbon molasses vanilla chocolate and a slight hint of booze

Taste: chocolate bourbon and strong molasses followed by trailing notes of vanilla. this is one hell of a beer. had a fair amount of alcohol burn when it was cold, but after warming up alcohol was barely noticeable

Mouth-feel: thick and a tad bit syrupy. slight carbonation.

Drinkability: Quite amazing how well this drank for being 19.5%.

Overall: This is one hell of a beer. i felt that this beer could never live up to its hype, but i was wrong.

Serving type: on-tap
